“Hi I’m demisexual and I have had a long term partner for about 8 or 9 months who describes himself as hypersexual meaning he has a high sex drive and believes that in many situations he would be happiest in an open relationship. He’s come to the conclusion that he wouldn’t even want an open relationship with me and would prefer if we were monogamous (much to my relief) but after a lot of discussion surrounding his attraction to and desire for other women I’ve found that I’m becoming jealous very easily and I’m not sure how to deal with it. I’ve brought it up with him before but he doesn’t seem to understand why its such a problem for me or the extent of it or why I need his support. He’s not a very reassuring person by nature and I think that may be contributing to it. I’m wondering if there is anything I can do on my own to get better at dealing with it and if there’s a way to make it easier for him to understand what I’m going through.”
