    Hi, I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now, we live together with our 2 dogs and everything's fine with us until it involves my family. He says it's just my mum that he doesn't like but he won't even come with me to visit my nan because she lives so close to my parents. Ordinarily I'm fine with it if he doesn't want to see my parents but lately he's been saying that he'll go round for dinner, not just to my face but my parents as well, but as soon as it comes to going round he backs out of it and tells me to make up an excuse for him.I hate lying to my parents and I know hes lying when he tells my parents he'll go. It makes me feel uncomfortable.Am I right to be getting so upset with him over this?

    You can only talk to him and find out why.

    If he is that uncomfy then why not invite them round or meet for a meal at a restaurant so he isnt so threatened?

    He shouldnt lie. he only needs do it a few times a year?

    If he wont do it for you then it calls him into question a bit.
