Jealousy and overprotectiveness - December 11th 2013, 05:10 AM

Hello. I am 16 yrs old and my boyfriend of 5 month is as well. We met through a mural fine but recently other guys have been revealing romantic feelings towards me and my boyfriend is clearly upset, he trusts me to make my own decisions about who I hang out with and doesn't want to be overprotective but I don't want to jeopardize my current relationship over a friendship with another interested party. I can see my boyfriend is worried that he will lose me due to bad experiences he has had in the past but i don't want to not hang out with guys, the attention makes me feel good is that bad ? I don't know. Any thoughts??

Are you not getting the attention you want from your boyfriend? If so, then what can he say or do differently to meet your needs? I understand that it feels good to receive attention, but wouldn't you rather receive that attention from your boyfriend, if he can provide it to you? Talk to him about what can improve within your relationship! Once you begin strengthening your relationship, you may stop craving attention from your male friends. In fact, their blatant attempts at trying to "woo" you may begin to disgust you. That may lead you to put some distance between yourself and those male friends, which will probably ease your boyfriend's mind.

Thanks I guess it's a bad habit I received from my abusive past where I would have many males in my inner circle because their attention ultimately brought me down but at the instant they gave it I felt better so it constantly drove me to get more of it. I do lovey boyfriend and love the attention he gives me but he can't be there all the time and I feel bad being so weak but I am...
