Jealous of mates


Jennifer, 29, press secretary

We’re still in the same place that we were 4 years ago and I don’t know how to change that.

All we do is go out, get drunk, have a laugh, have sex- but that’s a far as it goes.

We don’t think about the future, until recently we haven’t even talked about it. I have a great time with Michael and I love him but I think I need a bit more than a laugh these days.

I’m not saying I want to get a ring on my finger and a baby right away- all I want is to calm down, stop living such a party lifestyle and settle down a bit.

When I tried to talk to Michael about how I felt he looked like I’d just asked him to marry me or something. He doesn’t see that by asking him to calm down a bit doesn’t mean we have to do the whole family thing, it’s not black and white he just thinks it is. The worst bit it that’s what he thinks I want and I think he’s starting to resent me for it.

The last thing I want is to get between him and his friends or ask him to choose. I know how important his friends are to him and that’s part of what I love about him, all I want is for him to grow up a bit and not take me for granted, I just want to feel like I have a proper place in his life and for us to move forward.

It’s almost impossible for me to get through to him without him shutting down and making ridiculous assumptions about the things that I am trying to explain. Ultimately he doesn’t listen to me and I have no idea what to do about it- old habits die hard I guess.
