    My boyfriend and i have been together just over a year now and problems are starting to arise because of his attitude. He,by nature,is very shy but sometimes comes across as aloof and stand offish.He will literally ignore people when we are in company especially if he doesn't know them that well and at times its been a little embarrassing for me.I am starting to find myself making constant excuses for him. But,his behaviour is also the same in front of my parents and sister. They have tried not to overwhelm him and let him be but sometimes he won't even say hello. They have started to question me on why i want to be with someone like this who is 'plain rude'. There have been lots of little things that he has done in front of my mom and dad,such as tutting when he's being spoken to and rolling his eyes.Should i stay with someone like this?

    You should talk to him, see how willing he is to change that, and if he doesn't, assess whether being with someone like that is a deal breaker or not, or if you love him and want to be with him anyway.

    Yeah, definitely talk to him and let him know how his actions - or non actions - are making you feel. If he starts to make more of an effort for your sake, then problem solved, but if he doesn't, you definitely need to evaluate the relationship, particularly if this is something that is really bothering you. Especially If your family and friend's opinions on your boyfriend are important to you. If they aren't, I'm sure you're old enough to decide on who you want to be with regardless of other people's opinions, but if its affecting your happiness, you need to have a word.
