My boyfriend and I dated for about a year and a half. He doesn't like to socialize with people and told me that he only wanted to be friends. We loved each other dearly and I wanted commitment so I broke up with him. I started dating someone else which didn't work out either. My ex boyfriend came back to my life saying that he wanted to work on us. He always loved me but never told me so he wanted to try again but no promises. We have been dating each other for 4 months and everything was fine until I asked him to come over for Christmas at my sister's house and celebrate the New Year's Eve with my friends. He told me he doesn't like group settings and that I can go but he won't change. This is the way he has always been for the past 47 years of his life and he won't do it now. I told him that it would mean a lot to me if he did that and he said that I need to look for someone else then. He is so anti social. I love him a lot but know I can't live my life with an anti social like that. Do you think there is any hope? He is a wonderful person who is very responsible, down to earth, cares for his parents and never does anything wrong. But when it comes to group settings, he is just so selfish that he doesn't care if it's important to me. What kind of advice would you give me?
