Yesterday my boyfriend told me he wanted to see his poker buddies on Friday night. But that’s OUR night. We only see each other on the weekends because he works out of town during the week. It wouldn’t be a big deal, except he’s going out of town for a few weeks and I’m disappointed because I thought he would want to spend time with me before he leaves. But instead he’s choosing his friends?!? Should I be worried??? I’m afraid to say anything, but it feels like he has all the power in the relationship and I’m just supposed to smile and accept whatever he wants.”
Kathryn, I can hear that you’re feeling neglected and you’re afraid that if you say something, you’ll risk losing him.
This is either a passing feeling of disappointment that you can easily move past when he does something right or something to make you happy again, OR it...
