Q

I just want to hang out with my boyfriend and my friends but he just wants to stay at home by ourselves. It’s getting boring…what do I do?

Hi Courtney, good question!

It's pretty normal for two people in a relationship to have different social needs. It sounds like your need to be social is greater than your boyfriends’ need. No one is wrong or right in this situation, it just has to be negotiated.

If this relationship is important to you, you may want to express this to him in a non-blaming way. The best way forward is to negotiate some time alone together, some time with friends together, and some time apart.
