Boyfriends housemates

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Long story short basically last year my boyfriend and I took a break because his housemate was being too friendly and he couldn't see it, also we weren't vibing well at that time.
    We got back together and I suffer with really bad anxiety. I have tried to say hello to his housemate (the girl) now and again and she just ignores me or gives me a strange look and looks away, I've told my boyfriend this but he thinks I'm being 'paranoid' his male housemate gives me a lot of anxiety due to how aggressive he can sound and the way he talks about women in general, sickens me.
    Whenever I hear them upstairs I get major anxiety and I don't know how to control it, I buy food for my boyfriend and I've been hearing the girl housemate come downstairs and steal my food that I buy for him when I cook for him, wedges disappeared and now my mince! And he still refuses to say anything to her, I don't know what to do, any opinions?

    To be honest, I would probably break up with him if I were you. It just doesn't sound like he cares about you that much, and caring about the other person is the basis of any healthy relationship.

    There is no issues between me and my boyfriend, we are perfectly happy. It's just this situation and I don't think he understands my condition at all and his housemates are the people who make me feel this way

    Why do you have to visit him at his place? Just go out or go to you house/flat.
