I trust him completely. He's an amazing guy and, disregarding his dumbass tendencies, he would never, ever do anything with another girl without breaking up with me first. The most he ever does is flirt, and, honestly, I do the same.
My problem? I think his flirting has finally won the affections of a very attractive, awesome woman (I've never met her... I say "awesome" because he's told me about her: she's fun to be around, she's interested in design/new media - which is his major - and they just get along really well).
Naturally, I don't think he's going to do anything about it. But I'm uncomfortable. New media students spend hours and hours in the campus computer lab, and sometimes it ends up being just the two of them, alone, at night. I imagine scenarios that would never feasibly happen.
How do I cope with my issues? (And yes, I talk to him about these kinds of things. It just makes him feel awkward in his friendships, so I'm trying a new outlet.)
I did a poor job of explaining this, I think.
And the thing is that I know all of these things. I know that if I keep it up, I'll eventually drive him away. I know that it's contradictory to say that I trust him and yet get jealous.
I just have self-esteem issues. I'm working on them. It's a thing that takes time.
I guess I'm just hoping someone could offer some insight?
