Recommended Posts

ok so me and boyfriend have been together for almost 2 years, and i love him very much. We both are each others first loves and and were both virgins when we first met. Usually everything between us is awesome, normal little arguments but you know things are great. Now on occasion he starts having bad thoughts about my past, no one had ever touched him sexually before me but i had done a few things and i totally regret it. Everybody makes mistakes but he cannot forget it. He always feels so bad about it and feels the need to question me on every detail of these things i always ask him not to talk about. I hate it so much and I dont know what to do to help him forget about, I dont want to break up because when he is not making me feel miserable about my past things are great. I dont know what to do but this is just getting ridiculuos, I find myself randomly feeling horrbile about my past now and having so much regret when he doesnt even bring it up. So I need a solution.

After two years he should be over it. Besides the older we all get the more and more sexual activity we have. What were you supposed to do, wait for him before you knew him? Hes gonna have to learn to deal with it or hes going to be a lonely guy for a long long time.

Well see he'll be like, i didnt do anything because i wanted to save everything for someone i love. Which yah that was my plan too but i screwed up, i did some thing with some scumbag who meant nothing to me and i got over it. but its hard to be over it when someone is always bringing it up.

Maybe it's time for him to realize that 1. you met after what you did and 2. the likelihood of finding someone who has never done anything before is not very big. If he can't deal with it, i.e. if it's really a dealbreaker to him, he should be consistent and break it off. However, the next person he will be with, may have similar feelings about him because he did things with you.

 

Do you feel you started to 'regret' what you did more with every time that he brings it up? I mean, I have done things I am not particularly proud of, but in the end I learned from experiences, and I can't say that I regret all my stupid mistakes. You are entitled your own road, and there is simply very little that can be done here.

Well before i met him I still felt a good deal of regret for it, just because i was incredibly disappointed in myself, but that i got over like i forgot about it. but since my boyfriend keeps bringing it up of course i feel worse everytime, i dont know i just want him to grow up and realize i cant change it but no matter what i say he never seems to just let it go.

This is his problem and his hangup and there is nothing you can do short of walking away from him that will wake him up to the fact that he needs to leave your past behind where it belongs. Next time he goes on about it you need to be really firm with him and tell him that you can't change your past and if he can't deal with it then perhaps it is better that he finds someone who has never done anything. I would suggest that you make it clear that his harping on something that you can't change is hurtful to you and makes you feel like he is devaluing you, viewing you only in that context and minimalizing all the wonderful things the two of you share together. You need to spell it out just how damaging this is to the relationship and how you relate to him when he is subtly putting you down for what you did in the past.

because he always wanted to know details and i didnt want to lie, i thought it would be best to be open and honest. Was that a mistake? i have never brought it up because i feel so uncomfortable talking about it

Its just so random, he hasn't brought it up at all for the past couple of weeks but then this morning he wakes up with bad thoughts.. His solution is either smoking( which he normally only does when stressed but i hate it), making me feel bad, or ignoring me. I guess the only way to stay with him and deal with this is to let him keep his distance from me whenever this happens..

NO, tell him outright it has to stop. Hiding your head in the sand will not make it go away. If he can not get over it then he should leave. No one deserves to be made to feel like crap for the life they had BEFORE someone else. What were you supposed to have a crystal ball and know he was coming along?

To me being open and honest doesn't mean in a relationship having to share details that are irrelevant and highly personal - it's fine to have private space from your partner, to explain that and that is not "lying" that's simply choosing not to share based on wanting to do what's best for the relationship.

 

This is not to criticize your choice but I think what happened here was, he asked, true, but in reality, he didn't want to know - he thought he wanted to know, but once he knew details, his imagination ran wild - a typical downside of TMI about sexual pasts.

 

So, now, what you need to tell him is that you realize now that you should have had more boundaries and not told him BUT now that you have - and now that he asked -- it's not fair for him to keep throwing it in your face. I'm thinking that acknowledging that, if you could have done it all over again you would have not told him the details, might get him to a place where he can discuss this in a more balanced way.

 

Good luck.

I totally agree. This also sets up a bad precedence for other things that might come along during the course of the relationship. He is disrespecting you by behaving like this...what happens as the relationship goes along and he finds something else about you or something you have done that disappoints him...is he going to behave like this? Nobody should treat their partner like this. He is entitled to his feelings and if this is a major disappointment to him then he has the choice of ending the relationship...not emotionally beating you up over it .

While I agree that too much information is not necessary, I really don't think she has anything to apologize for...he asked and in the spirit of good will and good faith, she answered. I don't think it is a matter of setting boundaries...she thought they were close enough and honest enough with each other that she didn't think this would be a big issue. He has turned it into a big issue.

Amen!! Exactly! He will use this approach for everything he does not like.

I don't think she should apologize just explain that perhaps she would have done it differently but that what's done is done and now he has to deal with it. I think two people can be as close as two humans can be and still have private spaces and enforce certain boundaries even when one partner asks a question that goes beyond the other person's comfort zone -declining to answer because it is too personal/private or would needlessly hurt the other person doesn't make the relationship less close. having said that I totally agree with your advice and would add the pointing out the "boundary" issue could be a good precedent for any other time when one asks the other a question like that.
