So I’ve sent him an ICQ message about 2 days ago asking a innocuous question about a mate’s e-mail address.
I e-mailed him this morning: “Are you there? Please respond.”
I called his mobile and it was engaged and then switched off.
I’ve lost his landline (he moved 3 weeks ago).
My stomach feels like it’s in my throat with anxiety - see he had this row with his girlfriend while we stayed over at his place.
They were yelling upstairs until way past 5am.
She talks lots when she’s drunk, at anyone, anything. Spent the evening talking at us, playing 70’s tunes to us and telling us about bands we’d never heard of.
I was very, very bored. At some point in the evening I was upstairs with him while my partner was downstairs listening to his girlfriend. I said I was bored, that I’d rather be just watching his DVD’s and playing network UT or something on his PCs - bloke stuff. He shrugged it and agreed, said she gets like that when she’s drunk.
ANYWAY: I didn’t hear all of the argument but I think it was him telling her that she’d hogged the whole evening and bored everyone (himself included) stupid. She accused him of being rude to her and ignoring her all evening, pretending to be macho and deliberatly awkward…
THE NEXT MORNING:
We pretend nothing’s happened for a little while - being mostly English. But he is still asleep and she talks to R— my wife, saying he scared her, never seen him act like that before etc.
Then she reckoned he was being nasty because I am always doing what my missus wants - that he felt he had to ‘show me the other way’.
Which is utter nonesense.
He’s known us (me and R) for years and years longer than he’s know her (6 months) - why would he choose now to vent this apparent emotion, she hurt my wife a lot with that and peeved me but she was tearful when she said this so we ignored it then and argued about it later…
Now he’s not replying to my usual methods of contact. We’re normally in regular contact so this is strange.
Do you think the ‘I’m bored’ comment has stewed in his mind and rubbed against his feelings for the girl and he’s annoyed that I told him his girlfriend was boring?
