Feel jealous of bf's past relationship.. Watch
He's working hard for us, but I always tell him I don't want anything too elaborate... I don't mean for him to take me on an expensive weekend trip every week, but rather I think once every month we should at least be able to book a hotel and just let our hair down. I don't feel like we can fully relax. Otherwise, he does an awful lot for me so I sometimes feel bad always bringing this up. He does way for me than he ever did for his ex... but then I know he had a 2 year relationship with her which I don't think he ever disclosed to his parents (they wouldn't have allowed it) and they were at uni together, practically in each other's pockets. I take comfort in the fact that my boyfriend has never been this serious about a girl before as he is with me, hence me being the first girl he's introduced to his parents. And he always says things like we've got the rest of our lives to spend evenings together... just because we're not it doesn't mean we have a bad relationship.
But I think I compare it to his last relationship and feel really jealous. It almost feels like he's been there done that. I don't know if I should bring this up with him? Is it worth me asking if his parents knew about his ex? Because in a way, if they did then I feel like I'm being punished for his past.
The ex is in the past, and for a reason. By telling him you feel your relationship is inadequate compared to his old one the best you can do is offend or hurt him, worst is he'll dump you. I'd not want to be with someone so insecure as to be keeping score with my past relationships.
My parents knew my ex, didn't stop him from becoming, and staying, my ex. I'm not sure "meeting parents" is quite as much of a deal as you think.
