  1. My girlfriend and I are both are seniors in college after the semester is over , also have been dating for over 5 years and now we are at the end of the semester where classes begin to rack up more work that needs to be done as well as completing last minute assignments. Well her and I both planned to hangout this friday because we were both free and it was the weekend before finals week so it was the perfect chance to finally have some much needed alone time , But she just called me on the phone upset because she had to cancel for this friday since her baby cousin wanted to spend the night at her house with her. I took it well because I understand that family comes first, so she wanted to try the next week (friday was a better day for both us since saturday and sunday were going to be dedicated to just homework and assignments), she said saturday, but I told her that I couldn't do that because I have a mathematics midterm that following monday and really wanted to use the entire weekend to study as much as possible for it and she was not happy about it as soon as I told her that, even though I explained to her this was a hard math class that I was taking and that I really need to pass the final since I didn't do well on the second exam (fyi the math class is Introduction to Cryptography) and she was still a little upset by it but she says she understands. I'm just kind of irritated that she would be upset at me for that. I know she was just frustrated because we have to wait longer to see each other..
  2. So today has been a pretty weird day, but what tops it all off is the fact my girlfriend has opened up to me about something that's been bugging her and something that caused it to trigger her. Currently we are both juniors in college with Homecoming coming up this weekend, unfortunately we will not be able to go due to other factors at play and with this being our first year at university since we both are transfer students. Anyways, as everyone knows that homecoming week is full of events and different activities each day. Well today she overheard some of her peers within her class about this huge event going at the arena on the campus and she hinted and implied to me that she really wanted to go to it since it started at 7 and my class finishes up at 6:50. So I told her I would think about it, mind you she doesn't drive yet I do all of the driving(not complaining just letting you guys know). Today my class had a lab assessment that really fried my brain and I really wanted to go home right after and just relax and she was really upset that I told her we couldn't go to it. She tried saying its fine but eventually cried about it later once we got home closer to her house. I told her I was tired out, plus I have a 9 am lab the next morning and another test to study for so I wanted to have as much down time as I could before I could study, plus it is my mom's birthday too. But the entire car ride she was just upset and talking to her was just making things worse because she told me that she rarely ever gets to go out have fun often or even go out to parties. She feels as though that she hasn't lived to the fullest, and always brings up about how I went to a party with alcohol(I don't drink or smoke weed ) for my best friend and she felt like she wasn't wanted because she wasn't invited. Which I understand, but in my defense I only went to see my best friend since he was away at college starting his final semester at the college plus it was his birthday. Anyways once she told me all of that I didn't know how to respond. I mean I told her since we both work and go to class full time its hard to maintain that, I mean i'd rather work hard now for the next 2 years of college to get my dream job save up for a house and then throw all types of parties that way homework and tests will be a thing of the past you know? I'd rather spend my college years wisely and not partying so I can party and have fun later and not accumulate a lot of student debt plus I'm paying for college all by myself and did not have an great start to my semester having failed two first exams and barely passing two others from different classes. PLus I already get a bare minimum of 4 - 5 hours of sleep each night depending on the workload that I have.
  3. Well said my friend! I think she started getting the memo once I told her how I felt, and as for the other aspects of our relationship things are fine. But I do know where she is coming from with the whole insecurity issue since her ex boyfriend pretty much dumped her for another girl. She should know after 3 years of dating I'm not going to leave her and that I show my love through acts of service.
  4. Wow maybe I am you make a very valid point! I definitely need to make sure that think of a compromise then so we both can be happy and I can get my work done!
  5. Thats how I should construct the perfect compromise in order for us to be both happy! Plus knowing her she would love for me to say things like that so I will definitely talk to her tomorrow about it thank you!

  7. Okay so recently I have started to notice that my girlfriend has decided to call me every night before she goes to bed which kind of annoys me since she knows I have a boat load of homework and things to study for each night since I'm taking two high level maths and an online course. She could tell I didn't want to talk on the phone the other night because she noticed how I rushed the conversation. I am not trying to be mean to her but i'd prefer just to text her that way I can focus and multitask more efficiently. She gets very upset if I don't say I love you back to her as well even though she says it a million times to me, as I told her I say it when the moment is right and not copious amount of times. My problem or question is, that am I wrong for feeling this way? for being annoyed at my girlfriend for calling me every night before she goes to bed even though she knows I'm busy doing homework?
