My boyfriend ignores me at the movies.


Recommended Posts

When we go out on dates, my boyfriend's attitude bothers me.


For instance, today I met him at the movies. He did not greet me with any kind of affection or even make eye contact. As soon as I got there, he just headed toward the theater like he just expected me to follow him.


During the movie, he would laugh at his friend's comments. However, whenever I made a comment (which was not often) he would not even respond to me. When I tried to hold his hand, he would reciprocate for a few seconds and then brush me off. He always acts this way at the movies. His excuse is that he's trying to "analyze the movie" and doesn't want to be distracted.


I don't see the point in going to the movies with someone if you're just going to ignore each other. Whenever I go to the movies with him, I feel like I might as well have gone by myself. And, like I said, he doesn't ignore his friends, just his girlfriend.


When I try to communicate about this problem, he says that he doesn't know what I'm talking about. He doesn't recognize his behavior, and if he does, he doesn't see a problem with it.


What should I do from here? Is he taking me for granted? Am I showing low self-respect by putting up with this behavior? Is there any more I can do to communicate with him or to convince him to stop taking me for granted? I would really appreciate any advice.
