My boyfriend lied about his past to make me jealous
I have been dating my current boyfriend for a year and a half. (both divorced) At the beginning of our relationship he asked me how many sexual partners I have had. I told him 8 and he replied with "wow I feel really bad now please don't judge me... I've been with 150!" I was shocked! It made me sick to my stomach to think he had been with so many women. Throughout the last year and a half it ate at me, I questioned breaking up several times with him because i was scared that since he cheated on his ex wife so many times he would cheat on me too... We had SEVERAL talks about his past and i asked him questions about what happened and why he would hook up with so many women and he even made up detailed stories of events that took place. We talked about itALMOST DAILY. I got him to tell me 2 months ago that he has really only been with 12 other women... he just lied to me to make me jealous and he feels bad. Then yesterday I asked him more questions about his past and he said ok It was really only 4 women. and the main one that made me jealous was a lie. Is this a good enough reason to break up with him- for lying about his past? Part of me is relieved but also sad that he lied.
