Love Letters

She wasn’t invited to the wedding

Q. To make a long story short, my boyfriend Luke and I have been together for nearly two years, we’ve been living together for a year and a half, and we definitely have our problems. There has been cheating on both ends (one time each), he interrupts me a lot, I have a temper, and once I pushed him because he ditched me on New Year’s Eve. Despite this, we have worked through the majority of our issues, and when things are good, they are really good. We both know that we are going to spend the rest of our lives together and intend on getting engaged later this year.

That being said, he has complained about me to his friends to the point where I am not welcome around them. He sees these people on a weekly basis, ditched me this past Christmas/New Year’s Eve to see them, and has told me he didn’t want me around them until our relationship had improved. Well, now that it has, I have been making a real effort to get involved with his group. I apologized to his friends for any hard feelings or misunderstandings in the past, and made it clear that having the support of our family and friends is important to me. His friends seemed to be very receptive and I thought everything was cleared up.
