My boyfriend and I have been dating now for about two years. We previously dated on and off for 4 years. During that time, he struggled immensely with fidelity and even got someone pregnant. I lost my virginity to him and have only ever been intimate with him. He’s also the only ever serious relationship I’ve been in. I’ve gone on dates but it never went further than that. It took a lot for me to even consider a relationship with him again due to the constant cheating and embarrassment I endured. But I did because we’ve both changed.
We recently we were going out for dinner and a movie. While doing so, he got agitated that I noticed these guy’s outfits. He described it as my eyes wandering and I reassured him that I was not looking at them in that way. It escalated into a nasty argument and him suggesting that I may have not only been with just him. We’re always super transparent with each other now given our past issues although I’ve always been because I’ve never had anything to hide.
I haven’t talked to him since and am not sure how to even address the situation at hand. He struggles with his self-confidence as do I at times but I’d never do anything to disrespect him. Even after our history together, I’ve never once thought about doing anything to hurt him. And I told him that when we argued.
I’m not sure how to even address this since I offered reassurance to him. I’m at a loss with what else I could say aside from what I’ve already said. Any suggestions?
