My boyfriend and I are madly in love w/ each other. We talk about spending the rest of our lives together all the time. There's nothing I want more. But, we have one serious problem that could end up destroying our relationship. I've been with more partners than he has. He was a very good "kid" who made good decisions about relationships and sex and I didn't. I used to be very insecure about myself in past years but I have grown up a lot. I have gained the much needed self-esteem and self-respect I needed. We are now (for the most part) on the same page with how we feel about sex but for some reason he can't stop thinking about my past. It bothers him greatly. He can't stop thinking about all the people I've been with. He knows he has a problem but neither one of us can get to the source of it and neither one of us knows how to get over it. I need someone's professional advice on how we can overcome this. He feels a couple of things. He feels that we are not on the same page sexually. He feels that my experiences don't align with his and it alienates us from one another. He feels like he made the right decisions in his life and he made sacrifices and that I didn't. He feels like I gave into all the temptation while he didn't. And it's not quite fair that I get to be on the a level playing field with him now b/c I made such poor decisions in the past. We have talked extensively about this but we can't seem to come to a solution. We love each other too much to give up on our relationship b/c of this one issue. Any advice is appreciated.
