My boyfriend and I have been having an on-and-off relationship for a number of years now. We've finally got back together and this time I really see it lasting for good. He's a really great guy and means the world to me although, a number of times that we've been together, he has been extremely flirtatious with other women, and early on this time he's even gone as far as chatting up one of my good friends and sending nude photos. I can't trust him anymore. What do I do?
Thank you for sharing your situation. It’s always important to watch how people behave in a relationship because the way they’ve acted up to now is likely to be how they’ll behave in the future.
It’s up to you to decide what kind of relationship you want and how you want to be treated. You might want to take some time to think about what’s important to you and what will help you treat yourself well and move your life in a positive direction.
It’s OK to ask for what you want in a relationship. You might consider talking calmly and kindly with him a few times and figure out whether what he’s saying and doing makes sense to you and fits your needs. Remember that you deserve to be with someone who wants to be with you exclusively and treats you wonderfully. You’re worth it.
