Please leave any comments with opinions/advice. This is making my mental health problems harder sometimes (anxiety/depression/ptsd/derealization). I have been sating a guy for a few months who I have completely fallen in love with but I am scared the relationship is turning toxic. I do not want to leave him because I do love him very much but I do need to figure out what will be best for me. There have been many different incidents, but lately he has been going through my phone and getting upset about pictures of my past relationships that I had forgotten were still on there. I thought I deleted them all for him, including all the old pictures on my social media of my ex’s, but this morning he found that there were some more ex pictures on a picture editing app on my phone which I had honestly forgotten about, so I deleted all of those for him and he is still upset. I also deleted all of my old messages and unfollowed some people off of social media for him. He has yet to do the same things for me so it is kind of double standards. I don’t know how to feel about this anymore and if he is being controlling or if it is okay because he is sensitive about it
