You had one of those too?
I think that at least half of my friends, male and female, have had one of "those" at some point in their dating lives...
Mine would sometimes call me after I'd made plans to go out with some friends to see if I wanted to come over (we were both in college but were commuter students who lived at home) that night, when I told him I'd already made plans he'd go "oh, well, if that's what you'd rather do...".
Um, yeah, since I made these plans a few days ago and you're just now getting around to inviting me over--yes, it's what I'd rather do. Inviting him along with the friends wasn't an option since he never even tried to enjoy himself and later would say "well, I'm not used to being around younger
people since most of my friends are older
" (I was 20 and still hung out with a lot of the people I'd gone to community college with, so we were 18-20 and not old enough for the bar scene, he was 23 and most of his friends were his age or a bit older).
I get that there's some maturity differences between, say, 18 and 23, but his tone really bugged me. It's also probably worth mentioning that the whole time we dated, I never met any of his friends that he talked about. Apparently, whenever he got into a relationship
, he would pretty much isolate himself and only spend time with his significant other or his immediate family (and expect that she would do the same).
Yep, not happening.
