Skittles, my youngest daughters father, when I was 8 & a half months pregnant w/her, just wanted to "go have a beers w/the "fellas" one night"...ok..."have fun hunny" I said, & meant it too....well, hours go by. Nothiing. He had turned off his cell ph. At some point, I finally did manage sleep, but...not a good one. I woke up just a couple of hours later- round 6ish a.m.. Began calling hospitals, his friends, even driving to a couple of their houses. I was, a MILLION percent worried & concerned, &, thought I was going to go into labor due to the stress.
Around 7-8 a.m., he called w/this insane story about how he had been in JAIL of all places!! So, thats why he COULDN'T call me???? WTH?
He came home, went straight to shower....then, went to sleep.
...I called the city where he "claimed" to have been locked up for being "drunk in public", &, I will NEVER forget the officer on the other line saying to me "ma'am, I have never been sorry to anyone before for having to tell them that this person WAS NOT in jail here"...I never did find out where that rat spent the night, but...it sure wasn't jail.
My DH now though, goes zillions of places w/o me...I NEVER wonder what hes up to...my trust in him is a MILLION percent! But, then again,...I never give pause to where he's at, because, he always calls me. I trust him like I have never trusted another. I must say, that I truly have peace of mind now. It's...BLISSFUL!!!
If, however, I found out that he just "slept on a girl "friends" couch"???...& NOT called me, I would be a VERY difficult person to live with!
Sounds as if you BF is finding it very difficult to "digest" your couch story too...people, afterall, DO have wild imaginations. Which, could very well leave them w/a very bitter taste in their mouths. His pride, I would say, is quite bruised. I don't want to "point fingers" at anyone here, but...he IS human, &...well, I just want to perhaps give my 2 cents as to WHY maybe this is hard to overcome.
Wishing you good luck!
