Boyfriend Needs Babysitting in Social Situations

Group Therapy: I Need to Babysit My Boyfriend at Parties

This question of comes from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

have been with my boyfriend for about four years now and are at university together.  We are in the same clubs and societies because we have very similar interests, but one of these is causing us problems.

He does not have many friends at this particular society and he is starting to follow me around, I don't mind this at all.  However when I talk to someone else not in the current conversation he gets upset and says I have "abandoned him."  I always wait for people to come up to me rather than me go over to them, so that I am still standing next to him but for some reason this is still abandoning him.  It is frustrating because after every meeting he seems really annoyed with me when, in my opinion, I have done nothing wrong.  If I try to involve him in the conversation, he just sits there looking grumpy as he "doesn't have anything to say." I don't want to tell him it feels like I am babysitting him, because it will make him more upset, but it does.

What should I do?
