It's up to him to submit to your request to "slow down" his relationship (if that's even possible). You do, however, have control over how you deal with your jealousy. If you want to work on your stuff and give him his freedom then work on your stuff and give him his freedom. It might not be easy... many things aren't, but that doesn't mean we should have other people take action in service to our own insecurity.

It sounds like you have come to a decision that you need to let go of his reigns and work on your own jealousy issues but haven't worked up the courage to actually let go yet.

Keep reading, seek therapy, remember that you are fully responsible for your own actions and emotions. You can do it!
