Hello Dr Innocent,
I have been dating my boyfriend for a year but he still does not trust me. Whenever he sees me talking to other guys, he always asks who they are and what exactly my relationship is with them. I love him but I cannot stand this! What should I do?
All men are jealous but the levels vary! When you are approaching this situation, look at both sides.
Ask yourself, why he is doing this? Sometimes, men love someone so much that their greatest fear becomes losing that person.
This leads to over protection all the time even when they are not supposed to do so! Your boyfriend could be so mad about you that he fears the thought of losing you. This does not mean that he does not trust you, he does but the problem is fear.
Talk to him about it. Tell him how you see things. Help him overcome this fear of losing you by building confidence in himself so that he can believe that you truly love him. This will make things better!
