I’m really struggling with this. I get anxious when my girlfriend wears kind of revealing clothes in public. But we’re not talking anything outrageous, maybe a low cut top or short, tight skirt, but nothing particularly out of the ordinary. I’ve worried about this in past relationships too (some of which have involved particularly revealing clothes).
I’ve spoken to her a bit about this (calmly and gently, making it clear that I know this is my issue and wouldn’t expect her to change). She does understand but also finds it difficult.
Anyway, this makes me feel really anxious and I can’t but feel affects our relationship. And I trust her, but the thought of other people seeing intimate parts of her, and having those feelings for her, really gets to me.
Any advice, opinions, suggestions or anything else would be much appreciated.
