A man doesn’t know how to handle his girlfriend’s response to him going on vacation.
He asked Reddit’s “Relationship Advice” forums for help. His girlfriend doesn’t want him to go on an 11-day vacation without her. She insisted it was because she would be completely alone without him. But he doesn’t think that’s his problem.
“My (25F) girlfriend is crazy mad at me(24M) because I’m going on vacation with my group of friends,” he wrote. “Some of them are even bringing their girlfriends but mine isn’t going because she can’t take vacations at work.”
The girlfriend is upset because she would be alone for 11 days, doesn’t have any friends in her area and he won’t be able to text her all day. She’s also fuming because he’s the only guy who isn’t bringing his girlfriend.
“I love her but I’m not sure if I can keep up with this, I see that she’s pretty sad & mad about this,” he said. “But on the other hand, I know I’d regret if I didn’t go on this trip with my friends since this is probably the last time we’ll be able to go all together.”
He insisted she would make the same choice if the roles were reversed. She agreed but with the caveat that he has friends in town and she doesn’t.
“I’m afraid she’s gonna be mad the whole time I’m on vacation and ruin it for me… I can’t have fun and know that she’s mad/I’m making her sad,” he wrote.
Redditors thought the girlfriend was being unreasonable.
“If she has no hobbies, friends, or an ability to enjoy her own company than there is nothing you can ever do to make her happy,” a person suggested.
“Having you be all of her social life is not sustainable or fair to you,” a user said.
“It is not your problem she doesn’t have anyone in her life except for you,” another wrote.
