    My boyfriend is so jealous he scares me.

    He gets so upset when I talk with another guy, or another guy looks at me. He takes my computer and searches all my emails and the same with my I-phone. I don't know what to do? He doesn't realize I love him but he is driving me away with his jealousy.

    I don't believe in putting boundaries on

    sexuality. I would be with a guy or a girl if they make me happy and we live in harmony and make each other happy. As long as you love each other to me it doesn't matter.

    I just want something that's real.

    Something that isn't just sexual and something that doesn't leave me feeling empty.
