My man hates my mates – and has none of his own

readers dilemmas

My boyfriend hates my friends and it’s making life impossible for me. When we first started going out, he’d socialise with us all – I have quite a large gang of mates – and everything was fine. When we got a flat together, he began avoiding group social occasions and say he was tired or, more often, say he’d “catch up with us later” but never show. My friends noticed and think he’s a weirdo. Now my man has gone as far as saying he can’t stand my mates. He thinks they are too camp and loud, drink irresponsibly and act likethey’re “19-year-old idiots out on the scene for the first time”. We’re in our early thirties! VERY early! He’s 39. He’s not said anything like “it’s them or me”, but it feels that way sometimes. He doesn’t have any mates of his own, just a few boring bitter queens he knows from uni who he meets for coffee every now and again. It’s like the Spice Girls said, “If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends.” It upsets me he won’t even try, but he’s either oblivious or doesn’t care. What shall I do?!

About Gay Times

Summer may be nearly over but fear not, the GT September issue is officially turning up the heat with English ruby star James Haskell. Bursting out of a glass box and straight onto the cover, James’s appearance in GT is timely given Keegan Hirst having recently come out at the first openly gay rugby league player. James has long been an advocate of the eradication of prejudice in sport and had this to say about Keegan’s decision to come out: “It took real strength and courage for Keegan to come out. He’s a tough guy, and the fact that his team mates, the fans and everybody has taken it so well shows that it can be done. And it shows that your sexuality really shouldn’t matter when it comes to playing sport.” Also in this issue: Keegan Hirst Kinky Boots John Grant Gay asylum seekers Cel Spellman Rebecca Root Natalie Imbruglia Kerry Ellis Jaymi Hensley And all the very best in style, tech, grooming and entertainment
