    Am i overthinking? Partner wants to go away alone

    My partner of 15 months wants to go away fishing and camping alone for 3 days and didnt invite me ..
    Now i love camping and fishing and its on a weekend when i can go
    He is on his last week of holidays and says he wants to enjoy his last few days offs doing what he loves which is catching big fish lol
    We are going away for a few days together just before he goes but find it strange he is going alone (all his friends are working or busy)
    Whats your thoughts?

    Youíre overthinking.

    Some people fish to escape. Give him his space.

    My thoughts are; Wowzer going camping near a lake all by myself sounds awesome.

    I too think you're over-acting. Let him enjoy the peace while you book a fab girls night and a spa day so you can experience some of your own zen.

    Everyone needs their alone time, I donít find it strange at all unless there are other circumstances you havenít mentioned

    Well you're going away together before he leaves, so what's the issue again?

    Not getting why him wanting to get away for a few days on his own (no matter where he's going) troubles you so much; not to sound flip, but are you joined at the hip or something?

    If so, that isn't healthy, time away from each other is good once in awhile -- gives you both a chance to miss each other, and keeps the RL from becoming stale, same ole, same ole, routine. Yawn.

    I presume you have friends you can hang with during that time?

    Let the dude have some time for himself. He's already going away with you before. He's not obligated to spend his whole holiday with you nor to justify himself for wanting to have some time for himself.

    Well, yea... a cheating brother that takes the other woman camping would tend to raise a red flag. Hopefully your partner thinks his brother is the pig that he is????
