Why, oh why, are you giving this guy so many chances? There is an old saying: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” Please listen to your inner voice. You aren’t being insecure. You are being sensible. He’s a repeat offender. He isn’t going to change. He is going to keep lying to you. You deserve far better! Give him up and look for someone who will be honest with you and who will respect you.

I wish you well.
