My boyfriend and I have been together for a year now. This summer he has been gone traveling due to work and I have not seen him since May.
We usually tend to fight more frequently than most people. He came down to visit me this weekend and asked me to come stay with him for a few days while he visits his other friends. I was thrilled and expected the two of us to have some time together.
Instead we go to a party where he completely ignores me. He plays beer pong with his other friends who I don’t even know and I just sit there watching him.
I don’t know how to handle situations like these without them becoming huge fights so I didn’t say anything. I didn’t want to cause a scene in the middle of Valdosta with a bunch of people I didn’t know. What should I do?
It was good that you didn’t bring it up at the party. Public arguments tend to be fueled more from the male to make him seem more dominant when his friends are around.
Now is the time to sit him down in the privacy of your own house/apartment and tell him how you feel. However you must do it in a way where it does not come off as accusing.
Remember there are always two sides to every situation. Keep in mind he has been gone all summer working and most likely got caught up in all the fun and games.
Do not be passive aggressive, simply explain to him you expected the night to go differently because had not seen him, then see how he responds. Good Luck!
