Boyfriend avoids my family.
For some reason, my boyfriend is avoiding my family. We started dating last June and after the 3rd date, we started to go out with his sister and brother in law every other weekend. I didn’t have a problem with this as they are very nice people but, once my family (my sisters and their husbands) started inviting us out to do things with them and he refused to go each and every time I started to get concerned. It’s been a whole year, and they’ve only just met him recently and it was a very brief meeting. They greeted him and introduced themselves through the car window and that was it. I’ve been having to make up excuse after excuse after excuse to my family as to why he doesn’t want to spend time with them. It’s very embarrassing and hurtful for me. This morning at 10′o’clock, my sister invited the two of us out to dinner to celebrate my brother in law’s birthday at 7. I told my boyfriend and immediately he told me that he doesn’t want to go. I asked why and he didn’t have a reason. He just said he doesn’t want to go. But later, he came up with an excuse, saying that it was of too short notice. I don’t believe that excuse at all because not too long ago his sister, at 12 in the afternoon, invited us to go see Hunger games at 7 and surely enough we were there to see it right on time at 7. I just don’t know what to do about him. I love my family and love spending time with them but since dating my boyfriend I never get to go out with them anymore. I know they’re not blind to the fact that he’s avoiding them. Just the other day, my sisters were joking about him not liking them. What should I do?
