    Me and my partner have been together for about 7 months now, we're both at university and everything has been good so far!

    But with me, I cant help but worry whenever they go out clubbing, meals when other people are there e.t.c. I guess its a worry about them cheating on me..
    It happened at the start of the relationship, now they have gone back to uni its started again. I've confronted them about my worry and said what I feel and fear will happen and they've reassured me it wont, how they just want me, don't want anyone else blah blah you get the point.

    But this doesn't alleviate my worries at all, I think because my partner has a bit of a need for attention I worry that they might not resist a temptation if they get one, so another person hitting on them or making a move. The fact we're at different unis and how its a bit of a LDR doesn't help, I wont see them for weeks on end and in that space they could do anything and I wouldn't even know in the slightest.

    Any help TSR? I've seen my GP about possibly anxiety and attacks I've had, he's prescribed me some medication to calm me down when the time arises.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I think this is something you can only work on through trusting your partner, keep reminding yourself of what he has said. Maybe look into some sort of distraction whenever you are getting those feelings.
