You shouldn’t be upset that the guy you are dating didn’t invite you to hang out with a couple of his friends.
Being upset is unnecessary and will only exacerbate the issue.
You will need to have a clear head in order to think this through.
If this guy has only been dating you for a short while, he may not feel comfortable inviting you to hang out with him and these two friends.
He may believe that it is too soon.
He may want to give this more time before he takes it further.
He may look at an introduction to his friends as a sign of taking all this very seriously.
It may be the acknowledgment of a relationship.
Since he may look at it as a really big deal, he may want to be slow and steady about this.
If he were to have you hang out with his two friends, he may feel like this would be a process of validation.
Naturally, his friends would ask him questions about you.
These are questions that this guy may believe that he doesn’t have answers to at the moment.
He doesn’t want to appear unsure of himself to his friends.
This wouldn’t make him feel confident in what he has with you at the moment.
He doesn’t want to start something that he can’t really finish.
He gets cautious and decides to hold out on allowing you to hang out with them.
He wants to be sure about this before he lets it get this far.
Another reason why this guy may not have invited you to hang out with his two friends is because he may not believe that you would enjoy the experience.
He may believe that you wouldn’t enjoy the activity that they would be engaged in.
He may have gathered this from everything that he has learned about you so far.
He may not even believe that you would enjoy the kind of conversation that he would have with these two friends.
He may think that you would just sit there and hate the experience.
He may not want to put anyone in this kind of uncomfortable position.
Perhaps in the future he will begin to see that you wouldn’t mind this kind of activity or conversation.
However, for now, he doesn’t think you will.
If he is still trying to impress you, he is not going to be willing to put you in a position where you will either get bored or be ignored.
That is the last thing he would want.
He is still in the process of getting to know you after all and first impressions are so important.
This guy may also be worried about how you would react to these two friends.
He may believe that you wouldn’t like them or get along with them.
People in new relationships often have a fear that their partner won’t like their friends.
This fear will often lead them to avoid having their partner meet their friends for a longer period of time.
This may be what this guy is worried about.
You shouldn’t be upset about all this as long as he is willing to introduce you to them in time.
