4 months ago I started dating a new type of person to me. He is deeply sensitive and introspective, which is amazing but comes with its downfalls at times. Primarily I have started to feel like I am walking on egg shells around him, he becomes distraught hearing about or linking anything to my exs. He cannot even tolerate knowing if I did something with an ex in the past, he will completely refuse to do it or force me to lie to him and say it never happened. Mind you, I dont actively talk about my past relationships.
He is always presssuring me into lying. Per example today he sent me a video wishing me a happy valentines day and I waited to open it until I was able to listen to the video. I had wished him Happy Valentines Day prior to knowing the context of the video. He then asked me 20 minutes later to watch it and I did shortly after when I had the chance. The video was simply him saying happy valentines day, In response I wrote back “cute, happy valentines day love!” And he refused to accept that repsonse and repeatedly resent the video to pretend I had never seen it before because he wanted a more excited response like what I had written before. Each time he deemed it wasnt “right” he would pretend to start all over again.
This is odd to me, what would others do in my situation? How do I approach this issue ? It makes me feel inadequate and at times like we are not compatiable if he has to force me and my behaviors into this person and relationship he wants.
