...........My problem is that I have no concrete demands. I don't want monogamy or even a label. But equality and respect would be a good start. I want to be regarded as his partner by him, I don't care what he tells other people. Because otherwise I feel like I'm deeply in love with my best friend.
Are you sure that you don't want a "label"?? The word "partner" came up twice in this part of your discussion.
