Boyfriend advice needed
Welcome to the forums. Firstly, I want to say that your feelings are perfectly valid and rational. You are completely understanding that your partner may have girl friends, but understandably have issues when there are these girls hanging around who he has slept with, which means there was attraction there at one point and so they are not exactly strictly friends. At the start of a relationship there can be these hangers on, before someone feels completely comfortable to commit fully. It sounds as though he may also be using them as a ploy to make you jealous and thus reveal your feelings for him. at any rate, I would give him the benefit of the doubt for the time being and see if they trail off. if not, I’d be saying calmly but firmly that you are not ok with someone keeping people around that they have slept with as “friends”. I think it’s perfectly acceptable to establish boundaries of what you will and won’t tolerate from a partner.
