Hi. Welcome. I am a Licensed Master Social Worker with more than 20 years experience working with individuals and families on a variety of issues.
have you let her know that oyu need more in the way of a deeper connection?
it seems as if you have tried your best at communicating but havent gotten much in return. it could come down to the tow of you haveing different styles of relating where you desire more contact and a deeper connection and she doesnt.
Let me know if you are with me or having technical difficulties.
I am still here when you come back online so we can talk.
you here Aussi?
If you are on your mobile phone there most likely will be some technical issues. Let me know if you are on your computer.
Well, I am here for another hour. it is 9pm in the us. I will write some more thoughts as you may not want to chat.
I believe that having a conversation with your girlfriend about what you need and desire could be very beneficial. As I mentioned above her style may be different than yours so having some open communication about what you need may go a long way.
I am hoping she can hear you and respond. Like you it doesnt make sense to me why she would not include you for the BBQ.
in the end if she isnt able to respond to your needs around this it may come down to what you are willing to tolerate and accept for yourself in the relationship. It needs to be mutual and if it isnt you will feel second fiddle often. so take some time to express yourself and give her some time to give to those needs.
In time you will know whether she can step up and consider you as well.
so those are my thoughts and if you feel like you want to chat, I look forward to it.
