    There's a school event going on next month and since I'm in my final year of sixth form, I was hoping to go with my boyfriend - he's in the year above.

    I know lots of other people that are bringing their boyfriends and girlfriends that are older and from different schools to this event. My boyfriend doesn't want to go because he says it's something more for my year group and he claims he wouldn't have anyone to talk to. He's actually friends with a few people in my year and some in year 12 too, and besides he'd have me to talk to if there wasn't anyone he knew, but that's not the case.

    Am I being a bit unreasonable wanting him to go?

    I might go without him anyway since this sort of the last big event linked to the school and I've never been to any before.

    Thanks in advance.

    You're not being unreasonable at all, especially seeing as he's only one year older than you! But clearly if his reason of "not having anyone to talk to" isn't really valid then there must be some other reason as to why he doesn't want to go. I wouldn't push it if you're fine to go without him. Worst thing would be having a moody boyfriend there ruining your night

    Thank you! I thought I was just being a crazy unreasonable girlfriend.

    To be honest it'd be nicer to go with friends because our relationship has been strained ever since he started uni and we've been having to work as a LDR. His ego has inflated like I don't know what, so showing him I can have fun without him is sure to sort that.

    Thanks again!
