My Boyfriend Always Hangs Out With His Friends

"My Boyfriend Invites His Friends Everywhere We Go"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I need some female opinions, other than my own friends who are obviously on my side.

I'm 26, been with my BF for over a year. We are great. He is great. Life is good.

I have ONE major issue with him . . . he invites his friends EVERYWHERE with us. For example, we had a rainy day on Sunday and just lounged at his place that he shares with his two roommates (a married couple) they were out of town so I figured it would be nice to have a day to just lounge the two of us. Nope. We decided to go to dinner and of course, he invites his friend without even asking. We are supposed to go away this weekend to his family's lake house, and he wants to invite his other friend. We went to a movie last week, and he invited another friend. Seriously? I don't invite my girlfriends everywhere we go, and if I want to, I at least ask him. I have discussed this issue with him before, and I have said can you at least ASK me if I mind if anyone else comes? I don't want him to myself 100 percent of the time, but seriously, his friends take up all his time and I would like to have a little alone time with him once in a while cause when we hang out at his house, there's always tons of people there (BTW — his roommate, the wife, hates this too). I am happy my BF has a nice circle of friends, but seriously, I don't want to go everywhere with them! But then when he does ask me, I feel like a jerk if I say no, and he tells them no and then they have something to gripe about and say "what's wrong with your GF why can't I come with you" I've already discussed this with him a few times, but he doesn't seem to be getting the point. Any suggestions? He is so good with listening usually, just not on this topic!
