I met a guy shortly after separating from my husband. We grew apart and the separation was mutual, no hard feelings, and we still get on well.
The guy I met was great, but wasn't after anything serious, which worked well for me having just came out of a marriage.
After a few weeks, I caught up with an old fling online and we chatted, exchanged some pictures, but I cut it off as it just didn't feel right.
About a month later, things were going great with the new guy and he said he was really falling for me. I had been honest with him about everything, and decided to tell him about the old fling that I had messaged. This hurt him a lot, which I didn't expect as he had made it clear we were "casual". After a few weeks, he said he wanted to start fresh and felt like we were good for each other and could make it work. We are now 6 months on, and he just doesn't trust me. He's convinced I've slept with my flatmate, which I haven't and I can see in his eyes that he's hurting. I just don't know what to do, I can't keep protesting as it's bringing me down but I really want things to work. I wish I'd never told him about the online chatting, but I just wanted to be open and honest.
