Am I right to be upset?
I need some advice. Lately I have been getting really upset with my boyfriend. Its more of an internally upsetness that makes me outwardly pull away. We have been together for around 7 months. Things were fantastic at first: hearts fluttering with every kiss, not being able to stop thinking of him, the anticipation of the next time we would see each other...etc. I fell for him hard. Now little things are getting me very upset and I want to know if its justified or how I can feel better..
A few months into the relationship he mentioned something about me meeting his family. (He had already met mine around the first few dates). He said he did not want things to go for so long without me meeting his family and that he set a date for that to happen. That date has long since pasted. When I would bring up the subject again he would go off on a long winded explaination on why it could not happen then and, at one time, had insulted me saying that his family would not like me based off how I looked. Needless to say I was very upset then and even more so later when I found out his family did not even know about me. He explained all the times we went out as "hanging out with a group of friends" or worse yet "hanging out with (guy names that rhyme with mine)." Family members of his have come and gone out of town (most live across the country) and there has been no attempt to set up a meeting. Through an unfortunate car accident, in which I was a witness to, his family now knows I exsist (They needed to know all the parties involved and an explaination of why I was there). Now they mention wanting to meet me and my boufriend keeps putting the entire meeting off, stiring up the old feelings of when I was hurt early on.
With the recent holidays also came our birthdays. They are only a few weeks apart. I spent so hard thinking of what to get him as a gift. I ended up buying him movies that he loved and did not own and getting him cds from bands that he listens to all the time so he would have something to listen to in the car when he drives. It was truly from the heart and so much time went into picking everything out. When my birthday came around I got a novelty cup that he left the $8.95 price tag on. I thanked him for it and cried later on.
Another incident happened just last night. I really have not been able to see him much. Work outings or parties that I have not been invited to have come up when we would normally go out together so I have not been able to see him much. He did come over my house at Christmas time to be with my family since his was out of town. But other than that it really has not been just the two of us for a very long time. I was looking forward to the "midnight kiss" on New Year's Eve, especially since I have never had gotten one. All day he hinted at the fact that he wanted to see his friend that night, even going as far as saying that if he is invited to a party that may or may not be happening that night he would go. We went to my house for a few hours, to watch a movie he wanted to see and wouldn't budge on not seeing it, and he left to go ring in the new year with his friend. Now he is spending the entire New Year's Day with his friend and wants to watch TV at my house again tonight. I feel like he is going out and having fun and is just using me for the TV.
Am I getting upset for no reason?
