My BF wont stop texting other women

I have been in a relationship for over a year. My BF and I met over the internet and after 8 months of having an amazing and loving long distance relationship he decided to transfer to be with me. He has been living with me for 8 months and during these 8 months of living under the same roof I have caught him texting and emailing other women. He says that he gets texts from them out of the blue and responds to them and the conversation is never sexual because they are just old friends and co workers. He says that all his friends are women because he's always gotten along better with females then males. He has really no male friends. Yet he accuses me of texting and emailing other men...which I don't do because I respect him and he is a very jealous man, so I avoid any contact with other men to keep the peace. He's so jealous that even if I talk to a male cashier he makes me feel like I just cheated on him.

Thank you everyone for your comments I really do appreciate them all. The reason I decided to post something on here was because no one really has an emotional attachment to either of us so the comments and opinions would be unbiased.

I should have mentioned that his son doesn't live with us, he was visiting for the holidays.

I also should have mentioned that I knew my BF for 3yrs before we started a LDR. There were no signs of any of his current behaviors. The signs didn't start until he transfered to be with me. We met every month to see each other. It wasn't our intention for him to move in right away when he transfered but the transfer came 6 months before it was supposed to and he had less then a month to move. I scrambled to find a decent place for him to live but was unsuccessful...once he was here it seemed to just all happen so quickly. My children adored him and told

YOU GO GIRL!! I am so glad you see right through his empty promises.

"Life is too short to be unhappy and it's time for me to move on. "

Wise words. I admire you... I know you will find a great man who treats you with love and respect.

Good for you! It takes lot of strength to stand up for yourself especially to someone who we are in a relationship with. But you showed him your strenght and that you are not to be taken for granted. You are right and life is too short...keep us posted!
