When you’re always on trial, what do you have to do? You have to convince him that you would never disrespect your relationship.
But, truthfully, there’s no amount of convincing that you can do to make a jealous man trust you.
Besides working on his emotional issues, there’s absolutely nothing you can do or not do that will build your boyfriend’s trust in you.
Your boyfriend may never trust you and his jealousy may erode your own trust in him. If you can maintain your trust in the relationship, his lack of trust will surely make you sad.
As long as you’re not a couple, you both have the right to do whatever you want. Being exclusive sexually doesn’t mean very much if you’re still actively looking for other men.
To wit: This is in clear violation of the 1982 Friends With Benefits Charter and is usually considered grounds for breaking things off.
Extreme jealousy could be a sign that your relationship may turn into an abusive one.
Abusive men are usually extremely jealous and frequently perceive innocent behavior as evidence of or acts of infidelity.
Then again, in Paragraph IV of said charter, it is agreed that FWB relationships should be considered “don’t ask, don’t tell”.
Meaning, it’s easy to blame your guy for getting jealous of your other dates, but why should he have to hear about your other dates?
