My boyfriend wants to keep me a secret

Aug 21, 2012, 06:17 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I'm 21 and in a relationship with a guy from college. All is going well but sometimes I wonder why he doesn't introduce me to his friends and family.

I feel that we shouldn’t be hiding our relationship because I wish to take it to the next level someday. I see our future together. But going by his vibes, I think he wants to keep me a secret. Maybe he’s afraid that his parents won’t accept his choice of girl but then, at least he should introduce us to each other. I don’t know what’s in his mind because otherwise, he’s a sweetheart and genuinely cares for me.

Dear Rihana,
May be he is not serious about you. He appears to be in no hurry to take you home to meet their folks. Chances are your guy just hasn’t even thought to do it. There could be other reasons, too. Maybe he does not feel as serious about the future as you do. At the moment both of you are young. Studies should be your priority at this stage. But why not just ask him? Not in a confrontational way, but a by the way kind of approach.
