My Boyfriend Doesn't Trust Me

"My Boyfriend Doesn't Trust Me"

Alright, I'll just start this by saying my boyfriend and I have been together for two and a half years. He is the most loving, caring, perfect guy ever. He is exactly like me personality and goal wise. But there's only one (big) problem. Ever since the beginning, he has never trusted me and it's gotten really bad. I can't talk to guys at all, which I don't mind at all, honestly. I don't have friends anyways so it doesn't matter. But if I do talk to them, he's threatened to either kill them or himself. I know that isn't actually true, but it still upsets me. He's very insecure and always has been.

And what makes him like this is that I started talking to him at the end (but still during) a long, horrible relationship. He thinks I will do that again, although I know I won't. It was different then. I was searching for a way out and I found it. And it came in the form of him, and it was perfect. Not once did I ever cheat, except for emotionally I supposed since I longed for him. But nothing more than that until the other relationship ended. I don't want people telling me to end my relationship because I won't. It's only this one problem and I know there must be some way through it. What I need is your help on how to get him to trust me and believe me when I say that will never happen again. Thank you.
