    I am pretty much an anti socialist. I love being on my own, doung things by myself and even if irs staying at home watching tv. I have a very few friends and a partner. Anyway, my partner has booked a day trip for me, him and a group of family, including children. He knows I hate this, I hate going out in groups and I dont get along with children either! He said I need to start going out more and socialising but I am happy the way I am! I am really angry because I thought it was just going to be me and him but I really am not happy. Ive tried talking to him about it but he goes off in a strop so I just keep my gob shut. Am I really unreasonable and pathetic? I feel guilt but also annoyance. I am going to be very stroppy through the whole trip, I just know it.

    Just use this time to spend time with him and the family. It's not like this happens every weekend, so just deal with it for now, and try to improve your social skills. I appreciate you like being on your own, but you should still know how to talk to people. Don't be stroppy and don't ruin the trip for him.

    being in a relationship is about compromise, by the sounds of it he doesn't expect this of you often so you should suck it up and act cheerful, just because you don't like being around people doesn't mean he is the same and if he would like to socialize with you and others occasionally you should do it
