I Don't Like My Boyfriend's Friends — Advice?

I Don't Like My Boyfriend's Friends — Advice?

This post comes from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Feel free to add your advice in the comments!

I hang out with my boyfriend almost every day and we both have plans to be with each other for a long time. He's the only person I've ever really loved but it's starting to become apparent that I am emotionally sensitive and somewhat untrusting of him. I feel like I should be his number two priority, next to his family, but sometimes I feel like I'm at the bottom of the list.

He brings his friends over once a week to hang out and drink, and this never used to bother me. But as time goes on I feel like hanging out with me is never good enough for him, because even when we're on dates, he will be texting and answering calls the whole time. I don't like his friends because they are all very immature and their lives seem to center around drinking (my boyfriend is 27 and all his friends are 21). Some of them are actual alcoholics, drinking every single night until the sun comes up. Now as you can imagine, I do not like hanging out with these people (who would want to be around a bunch of immature alcoholics?). I don't like how my boyfriend acts around his friends because the only way he can relate to them is through alcohol. He will end up hugging beer cans in his hand the whole night, forgetting I am even there.

I've told my boyfriend how I feel and he always tells me I am overreacting. So basically what I want to ask is am I overreacting? I just feel as though it is time for my boyfriend to grow up and acquire more responsible friends who we can both enjoy hanging out with.

There's lots of great stuff going on in our community — join it, check it out, share your posts or advice in the great groups and maybe we'll feature it here on TrèsSugar!
