Thank you so much for the support
The tension has lessened....it comes and goes it seems still. Sigh.....baby steps. I feel kind of bad that my partner didn't really know my history. He never asked, so I just didn't say anything about it. I told him what he asked for about my past relationships. Open and honest about sexual stuff though. As far as fidelity and how it has seemed to always be an issue for me, I never really mentioned it because my mind was still under the guise that monogamy was how I was supposed to be. Glad I have found such awesome support here.
Things are moving forward though.
