Hi there,
Ive been with my boyfriend for nearly two years now and have NEVER even contemplated on cheating on him, however, everyday when he phones, I get drilled on who is with me, am i sure Im alone etc. He has even told me that "one day I will catch you with another man" despite me telling him that I have been faithful if anything. He has had bad experiences from past relationships and Ive told him that I am not like his ex's that used to cheat on him...Ive had enough and want to get out of this relationship, i cant relax anymore and am constantly on edge.

Sounds like pathological jealousy, the marker of a wimp with low self-esteem who can't believe his good luck to have someone as good as you as his gf. He needs to see a counsellor. J puts it very well. His bad experiences must not be allowed to encourage him to recreate re-enactments of those sad situations, with you. Tell him he either sees a counsellor and gets over these hangups, and then trusts you completely, or leaves you. It's not worth tolerating such jealousy
