Dear MISSter Simms,
I’ve been dating my boyfriend for a year now, but he refuses to introduce me to his family and friends. He says that his friends don’t like me simply because I’m his girlfriend. However, he spends way more time with them than he does with me. We hang out only once a week, while he sees his friends the other six days. On top of that they try to start fights with me on Facebook. When I brought this to my boyfriend’s attention, he acted like nothing was wrong. And when it comes to his family, he won’t let me go near them either. He’s met my family, but the one time I had the opportunity to meet his, he kept me sitting in the car while he went in the house to talk to his parents. What does all of this mean, and what can I do about it?
What does all of this mean? I could think of a couple of things. One, you have one of the crappiest boyfriends ever, and I’m both shocked and appalled that you’ve stayed with him this long (unless your boyfriend is Brad Pitt, in which case everything makes a lot more sense). Two, your boyfriend is hiding some deep dark secret he doesn’t want you to know about. He might not be saying anything to his friends about dissing you because he joins in on it when you’re not around, and he may be hiding you from his family because he’s married or something and you’re actually the other woman. You need to drop him like an oiled up baby, then take a good long look at yourself and think about why you have wasted a year of your life on this person. Anyone who lets their friends talk smack about you, hides you from said friends, doesn’t bring you around their family, and doesn’t seem to care about your feelings is not really worth your time and attention. Life is short, and if you’re worried about being alone or thinking that this guy is the only one out there for you, you’re wrong. There are something like 3,456,782,396 men on the planet right now. One of those people is definitely better than the guy you are currently with.
