My partner of one year does not trust me to pursue any outside relations due to some slip ups in the past, and more recently a relationship that developed quickly and didn't work out. He says that he views me as equal, but I don't see how this is possible, given the way he openly feels. Unsettling me further, he has recently entered a new relationship and I almost feel as though he should be acting as my equal- if time is needed to work on communication issues (from both sides), why am I the only one who needs to take a step back from poly?
I am unsure as to whether I am being unreasonable or too emotionally reactive, and I am willing to provide more details to clear anything up, but I am confused as to where I stand in this relationship. I am a 20 y.old female, he is a 19 y.old male and we are very committed to each other. I will do anything I can to make this relationship work and could use any/all advice out there
