Once in the past, he had received a text from her and he turned over the phone so I wouldn’t notice.
I made no comment at that time…I think it is unacceptable for him to be meeting her, texting and talking with her when he is four months into a new relationship. He said he’s not attracted to her and so on, but I just don’t like the idea of him hanging out with her, what if he invites her over for dinner, etc?
There are reasons why they can’t be together romantically. Just because your boyfriend’s friend happens to own ladyparts doesn’t mean he wants to leave you for her.
And obviously, there are reasons why he chose you as a romantic partner.
How selfish would it be for my need for affection to outweigh my wife’s need to stay healthy?
How insecure would I have to be to think that my wife’s act of self-preservation was somehow an insult to me?
And if he’s with you now, trust that there’s a reason he’s with you, too.
Your boyfriend has only lost interest in you if he shows no affection when you’re both healthy, not when you’re both sick. Next, you “made the mistake of looking at his text message,” and then “you made the mistake of scrolling back and reading the conversation” and then you made the mistake of bringing this whole thing up with him and then you made the mistake of thinking that it’s inappropriate for ex’s to be friends…
Thanks, Emily Dear Emily, Yeah, you probably asked the wrong guy.
I think you are particularly sensitive to your own needs and feelings and somewhat clueless about the needs and feelings of your boyfriend.
If you don’t trust him because you’re insecure about his friendship with his ex, you’re only going to accomplish the following: 1) You’ll make him feel like crap because his own girlfriend doesn’t trust him.
2) You’ll make him feel trapped because he’s dating someone who reads his text messages.
