I have been in this relationship for about 3 years and we have broken up twice. This time I want to give it all I have to make it work, because we have so much in common and we really do love each other. In the past I thought honesty was the best policy, so when I would go play pool for a team once a week I would come home and tell him all about the evening, including other men that expressed interest or were just flirting. Now he says that because of that he doesn't trust me when I go play pool on that one night of the week. I have never been with another man. Even when we were apart I stayed faithful, because I just knew I loved him. I have tried to reassure him that I love him and will always come home to him, but he still has doubts. Did I tell him too much? How can this be repaired so that it will not haunt our relationship forever?
