I got a new job in at the beginning of August. Tonight, I went out with some co-workers for happy hour. It was an awesome time. I never, ever go out, so it was just nice to relax after the beyond stressful week we had at work!
Anyway, I told SO I woud be home maybe 7:30. He was smoking pork on the grill and was wondering what time it needed to be done.. But then, everyone was wanting to stay out a little later, I was having a nice time, so I texted SO back and forth and let him know it’d be a littler later, he said that was fine.
By the time i was leaving, 9:30ish, I could tell he was irritated that I missed dinner.
There have been several times (maybe 4) in our 2 year relationship that I’ve cooked dinner and had eat alone because he was hanging out w/ friends.
This is the very first time I’ve ever done anything like this. I spend most of my free time at home. I keep telling myself — stuff happens… but I still feel really terrible I didn’t make it home for his dinner.
When I got home, he was in bed and all the leftovers were sitting out — smoked pork, some sort of delicious sauteed celerey, and a pasta side. YUM!
I feel bad because I should have been here with him to hang out before our busy weekend, because that’s what we’d planned on.. until I remembered Wednesday that we’d planned a happy hour for work… so he did know ahead of time I’d be going out, but we kind of had plans to be have a “date night” after.
But at the same point, it was really nice to talk to my new coworkers in a social setting, they are an awesome group of people :)I just feel bad for choosing work over time with SO — but we live together, SO and I spent a lot of time together anyway..
So yeah, maybe I’m not a totally crappy girfriend, but I’m just feeling bad right now :/
