mdp0858 Posted May 20, 2010 Share Posted May 20, 2010 Hi -- I have been with my boyfriend for a decent amount of time. We have been "official" for almost two years, but in total it has been 2.5 years. When we first started dating, I didn't expect to see him every day because just like I said...we were just starting to see each other. As things progressed, we started to hang out every weekend and then maybe a day during the week. These days, we still mostly have the weekends, and maybe a day or two during the week, and that's me getting to join him and his friends at happy hour. I'm at a point where I want more, but I think he's happier than ever with this little arrangement we have. He spends a ton of time out with his friends, and I feel like I'm the lowest priority on his list. All his other actions are VERY thoughtful, suggesting that he does want to be with me. He tells me that he never wants us to break up (we can't move in or get married for now because we work together). But geez, what I'm really missing is that "normal stuff." I want us to cook dinner and watch tv. I would even be okay with him still going out quite a bit as long as the nights he didn't were with me. Instead, he's home alone "laying low" since he partied the previous night. Am I asking for too much, or am I not high enough on the priority list?? I pulled out my calendar to see our routine the past couple of weeks, and here is his life, so to speak 5/4 Friend in town (I got to meet up with them for dinner at 9) 5/5 Friend in town, he went out with her 5/6 Him home alone 5/7-5/10 We went out of town together to see his family 5/11 Him home alone 5/12 Out with the guys 5/13 Out with one guy 5/14 Out with one guy; said I had been invited to go but I didn't know that... 5/15 Out with the guys during the day; picked him up at 10 that night 5/16 Just me and him killing a Sunday together 5/17 Him home alone 5/18 Out with the guys 5/19 Out with one guy At what point does a girlfriend become the top priority? How much time should I expect to get??? Link to comment
