DEAR DEIDRE: SEXTING other women does not count as cheating, according to my boyfriend.
How can I make him see that he’s being unfaithful?
I’m 24, he’s 23 and we’ve been seeing each other for 18 months.
Our relationship is pretty good and we have a brilliant sex life.
But even though he says I satisfy him, he still messages other women, sending suggestive texts and complimenting them on their bodies.
Once, he sent a girl a picture of his naked torso to show them the results of his new gym routine. He says he’s a flirty person and means nothing by it.
But it upsets me and feels like betrayal, especially as one of the women he sexts is his ex.
He thinks I have no right to complain, when he hasn’t slept with anyone else. Am I overreacting?

DEIDRE SAYS: People have different ideas of what constitutes cheating.
There’s no wrong or right here. What matters is that a couple make their feelings clear to each other and respect each other’s boundaries.
You feel sexting is cheating – as would a majority of people, I believe. Your boyfriend doesn’t.
Regardless, he knows he’s upsetting you and needs to take your feelings into account.

If he won’t stop sexting for your sake, walk away. You deserve better.
