His Friends??


My boyfriend needs to get a life, that doesn't include me!

I have been with my boyfriend for 2 years now. We have been living together since we met, and have a great relationship. We are very compatible and enjoy spending company together. We have a lot in common and enjoy doing the same things. The only thing that bothers me is that my boyfriend only spends time with me. I know- sooo bad right?! But it actually is. He has no friends and never goes out to do guy things. I wouldn't mind if he went to a bar or a movie with a friend. I have a girlfriend that has a boyfriend who goes out every once in a while and would love to get them together. If I can paint a picture I would say my situation is exactly like, "I Love You, Man". I have brought this up with him many times, and it never ends in a good way. My boyfriend tells me that it doesn't matter that he doesn't have any friends and that he is not looking to have any. He tells me that he is done with hanging out and acting immature.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can turn this situation around and get my guy some friends?
