My boyfriend recently admitted to cheating on me when we first started dating. I made the decision to give him another chance because I did believe it was a mistake, he knows it and he knows he has to work VERY hard to get me to trust him again. I haven't had sex with him in a little over a month because I don't want to be that intimate yet. I can tell it's killing him and his nagging can kind of wear on me. I'm afraid I won't be able let my guard down and with him always trying to get me to have sex wears me down and it's emotionally draining. I am not good at letting go, especially with my anger. I won't have sex until I am ready and he knows that but I don't know how to get comfortable again and get him to just stop making advances because they only annoy me.
