Would you be annoyed if someone you really liked contacted your closest friend on fb? Even if it was to plan a surprise.

gamerchick Sat 12-Oct-13 18:25:55

Show him the messages.. tell him he's acting like a dick and you were trying to do something nice. If he still kicks up then dump his arse. Life's too short.

Don't think I'di mind after a few months. I do know people who probably would mind though. Don't think he should be making you feel bad over it. Your intention was obviously good. He sounds hard work maybe??

Flojobunny Sat 12-Oct-13 18:33:03

Perhaps he was already looking for a reason to end it.

JaceyBee Sat 12-Oct-13 18:42:49

I think it would make me feel like it was a bit intrusive? But then I'm a total commitment phobe who likes to compartmentalise my social life and sex life. Maybe this guy is too? It was a bit mean of him to make you feel like shut for it though, I don't think I'd react that strongly.

JaceyBee Sat 12-Oct-13 18:43:23

Like shit I mean.

Flojobunny Sat 12-Oct-13 18:49:11

Yeah he knows I've had a crappy time of it lately with DD being scarily ill. I had hoped this one was different and would be gentle with my fragile confidence but surely it shouldn't be on/off this soon, let alone ever.

mammadiggingdeep Sat 12-Oct-13 19:00:08

Yeah, not a good sign. You can do better (and deserve better). Nexxxxt!!!

Flojobunny Sat 12-Oct-13 19:02:27

If only it was ever that simple!

mammadiggingdeep Sat 12-Oct-13 19:07:45

I know...didn't mean to be flippant. You've got to take notice of the red flags though my lovely. I will be if I ever decide to dip my toe in the dating world again. You can't get yourself lumbered with a twunt.

ChasedByBees Sat 12-Oct-13 19:09:13

I'd ditch him.

ihearsounds Sat 12-Oct-13 19:10:25

a couple of months, is that it?

Tbh, if my partner had tried this after a couple of months I would have told him to do one. Still a new relationship and all that. Even if the three little words was used. I have used them myself to get him into bed in the early days.

GuybrushThreepwoodMP Sat 12-Oct-13 19:18:29

How strange. Even if he did think it was a bit full on, why get angry? hmm

gamerchick Sat 12-Oct-13 19:20:36

Seriously.. take it from somebody who's long in the tooth. It's not worth it.

Man I've been with my dude 4 years and we're still into the wanting to climb into each other stage.

Tell him to jog on..you and your bairn are worth better.

SalmonellaDeGhoul Sat 12-Oct-13 19:24:44

Early declarations of love are a sign of an abuser. This one isn't a keeper.

FreeWee Sat 12-Oct-13 19:26:17

I did the same with my DH for a big birthday surprise and he was over the moon so many of his friends came. Sorry but he was 'angry'? What exactly was he angry about? Angry that you invited his friend to a surprise event for his birthday? But that's all about him. That's doing something nice for him Why would that make him 'angry'. He sounds like a bit of a tool I'm afraid.

Hissy Sat 12-Oct-13 20:32:00

Run like the fucking wind love!

Sorry sad

Angry you wanted to plan something special for his birthday including a close mate?
Bin the twat.

Flojobunny Sat 12-Oct-13 22:03:38

Well he's supposed to be here at 12.30am since we have plans in the morning so I guess if he isn't here by first thing in morning then there's no way it's going to be sorted out. DC are expecting him, if he lets them down I won't ever forgive him.

AcidNails Sat 12-Oct-13 22:41:33

I suppose it would depend. If DH knew my friend already then I'd be pleased. If they'd never met then I'd be fucked off after just a couple of months. I value and fiercely guard my privacy, and would hate to feel as though someone was trying to control bits of my life, which I would in that scenario.

Spelt Sat 12-Oct-13 22:43:57

I would be a bit dubious if someone I'd been seeing a few months started contacting my friends behind my back, I would think they were trying to worm their way too far into my life and it would creep me out.

However I wouldn't get angry about it, it would just make me go hmm, and take half a step backwards.

Be thankful he's shown his true colours now and not later.

Spelt Sat 12-Oct-13 22:47:57

If you put up with this over reaction then he knows he has you where he wants you. And yes to early declarations of love being a red flag.

Sparklysilversequins Sat 12-Oct-13 22:48:40

Why are your dc "expecting" him after only a couple of months? Why is it at that level already?

Personally I think he sounds like an arse but I am not sure how I would feel about someone I wasn't that serious with making contact with my friends. I would think it was pushy. Have you met them?

There are ways to approach it though and getting all puffed up the way it sounds like he has is not acceptable.

anon2013 Sat 12-Oct-13 22:50:32

run for the hills

Flojobunny Sat 12-Oct-13 23:58:49

He's deleted me off Facebook.
My DC were expecting him because we have done the same routine every Sunday for the past 3.

Spelt Sun 13-Oct-13 00:01:48

Clearly he wasn't right for you. Big rows over not much early on? Dumping you via Facebook? Bellend.
