What should I do about my girlfriend visiting?

To start with my parents are seperated, they live in the same city and I live with my mum when I’m not at university, I don’t get on brilliantly with my dad but I try. However, he is really paranoid about the fact that I spend more time with my mum and step-dad than I do with him and his wife, without realising that the majority of the time I don’t really see a lot of them anyway, usually just in my room watching tv/online/studying.

My girlfriend from university is coming to visit for the first time this week, she’ll be staying here and so will be meeting my mum and step-dad. Obviously that isn’t the purpose of her visit but it will happen and I’m okay with that. However, my dad has now asked if I want to go to his for dinner before I go back to uni at the end of the week. I don’t want to go because my girlfriend will be here and I don’t want her to meet them or to drag her about getting there and back. I’d rather take her out for a meal that night.

I don’t want to upset my dad but I know he will get about it because she is staying here and he’ll feel like he is being excluded when the matter is that I live her and it is convenient. What should I tell him?

I want to tell him the truth but he has this thing about meeting this new girlfriend as he barely met my ex and wants to see me before I go back to uni. I did go to his for dinner last week but I felt uncomfortable and like he wanted to get rid of me whilst I was there. What do you think I should say? Because no excuse seems like it will be good enough.

Answer #1

Ask your girlfriend what she wants to do. If she doesn’t want to go, then take her out to dinner, and tell your dad something came up. If you don’t feel comfortable with this, then explain to her how much it would mean to your dad if you two came.
