    ok, i just read this...

    well since your bf was hanging out with his friends and wasn't spending any time with you, i can see why you were annoyed with him. there have been times when i've felt left out and did something along the lines of what you did (like just leaving without saying goodbye). but now i've learned to just tell him straight up how i'm feeling and he always tries to include me now. so no - i don't think you overreacted given the fact that your bf wasn't even hanging with you when you two were at the same place...seriously, wtf? i mean, i know guys like their space and stuff but he should have trying to include you. its not your fault that you were bored.

    i mean, it sounds like he is always busy with work and you seem really supportive and you tolerate his usual 15 minutes that end up being way longer etc.

    Jennifer, you are much more patient than I am...I require a lot more attention.

    Make sure that you guys keep a good work/life balance, though! Sounds like you both work a lot ... hopefully you both love your jobs!

    I probably would've done the same thing and left if I was bored, lol. But I bet my bf would be mad...he says I'm being mean, even if I don't think I am....weird. But you said you've been together for 5 years, so I'm sure you'll like get over it. Lol, but it was kinda mean to lock him out...if MY bf did that to me, I'd be furious!!

    The biggest issue people have in a relationship is game playing. Don't do it. I know it feels good while you do it, but the repercussions aren't always what you want them to be. Both parties tend to grow bitter and resentful.
    Be honest, talk to him openly and honestly and you'll be fine.
    If I were you that first night I would have gone in and told him you were tired, you were heading home, and that you loved him. I wouldn't have locked him out of the apt. the next night because that is petty and small and game playing.
    You love him, you want him in your life. So let him know these things. Men are so easy to please and keep happy. All it takes is a little courtesy (and sex) on our parts and you can have pretty much the perfect relationship.

    Jennifer, I think what happened is the situation went from a simple misunderstanding to a game of who can get back at who the best. You're right, your boyfriend should have been paying more attention to you if the intention of the outing was for you two to hang out. He probably didn't mean to make you mad and he probably didn't even realize that he was ignoring you. You were bored, so you left thinking nothing of it. I can see why your boyfriend was upset since it probably was embarrassing for him that you just disappeared. But then instead of talking things out, you guys started this little game. First he disappeared and then you lock him out. Ouch! I agree with some of the other girls that the game playing needs to stop and you guys need to sit down and address the issue. And if you play your cards right, he may just start feeling guilty and want to buy you something to make up for it. LOL!

    Guys want to know what we want from them. They are terrible mind readers and need direction. As long as you talk to him calmly and nicely about things that are bothering you, if he is a good guy, he'll make the change. Just reinterate that you love him and want to spend time with him. He'll get that. And again about the sex thing... it works. It keeps them happy and (obedient <--- bad word choice but you catch my drift)

    I have to take his side on this one. Its common courtesy to tell someone when you are leaving if you are there with them, especially if you are also with others. I would be pretty embarassed if my BF up and left me sitting somewhere and didnt tell me he was leaving. I also have to say that if you went home and went to sleep, why should he have to come in and sleep if he wanted to spend more time with his friends? You obviously wouldnt know the difference. Locking him out on purpose would not be the way to go if you want him to spend MORE time with you, it would have been more mature to discuss your concerns with him instead of acting out, plus the outcome would have been better.
