Really jealous boyfriend Watch
The problem is, he's awfully jealous over my ex, to the point where we're constantly arguing over it. He reckons he is just a rebound and doesn't hesitate to bring him up at any given oppurtunity. While I can understand him being jealous (me and my ex were together for nearly 18 months), he really does have no reason to be and the arguments are really starting to grind me down.
I really don't know what to do I really really don't want to break up with him, as he makes me so happy and he's more or less perfect apart from the arguing. I don't really know what I'm asking for, but any advice would be appreciated xx
Do what you can to make him secure.
Do you see your ex a lot, does he live where you live? If so, then I'd definitely try to see him less - unless he's a key character in your life. If your bf knows that you never see your ex, he might be less likely to be irrationally jealous.
the best you can do is explain that if you and your ex wanted to be together you would be. it didn't work out and you're not going back there. you want to be with him so you are.
but i expect you've already done that.
Only thing that you can do is tell him that you aren't with him on the rebound and reassure him that it's him you want to be with and just hang in there I suppose?
its all about who your with now, not the past. he will trust you if he is right for you.
