Why your boyfriend introduced you as a friend to his family;

1. He is hiding the relationship from his family.

If your boyfriend is hiding the relationship from his family then he will never let his family know about it.

 

He will do anything he can to make sure that his family doesn’t know about his relationship with you.

 

There are so many reasons why a guy may hide his relationship from his family.

 

Some guys will hide their relationships from their families because they are afraid what their family will comment about them being in a relationship.

 

He may be hiding the relationship from his family because you are from different sides.

 

If your boyfriend is a Muslim and you are a Christian then you should understand that he will not reveal you because of what his family will say about you.

 

So, if there is any reason that makes him want to hide the relationship from his family then he will not introduce you as his girlfriend to them.

 

If you noticed that your boyfriend never wanted you to meet his family and it just happened suddenly without him planning for it and he had to introduce you as a friend then know that there is more to it.

 

You will know the rest of the reasons as you go on reading the article.

 

2. He doesn’t love you.

This is something else you need to know, though I know it may be very hard for you to take it you will have to.

 

If your boyfriend introduced you as a friend to his family and you were dating for a while then you should be worried.

 

This is a red flag!

 

It’s a big deal the way your boyfriend introduces you to his family. He might give you thousands of reasons why he introduced you as a friend but the main one is how he feels about you.

 

The way your boyfriend feels about you is what will determine whether he will introduce you as his girlfriend or a friend.

 

He doesn’t love you and that is why he introduced you as his friend to his family.

 

Don’t conclude this unless you have come across the following signs.

 

Signs your boyfriend doesn’t love you;

  • Your boyfriend has been taking you for granted for a while.
  • He doesn’t give you the attention you want.
  • He doesn’t care about fixing things in your relationship.
  • He is not putting any effort into the relationship.
  • Your boyfriend is not afraid of losing you.
  • He doesn’t treat you nicely.

If your boyfriend is not planning to settle down with you there is no way he will take you seriously.

 

Introducing you to his family is a big deal. And this should reflect how he perceives you.

 

The moment your boyfriend chooses to introduce you as his friend and yet you have been dating for over 6 months then know that your boyfriend is not taking you seriously.

 

He introduced you as his friend to his family because you are not the girl he is intending to introduce as his girlfriend later.

 

Deep down he knows that he will leave you and that is why he doesn’t want to introduce you as his girlfriend.

 

He is keeping that room for someone else who is not you.

 

There are several signs you will come across when a guy doesn’t plan to settle down with you.

 

If you have come across any of the signs I will share with you in this section then know that you are a short-term thing to your boyfriend.

 

You aren’t the person he is planning to settle down with.

 

Signs your boyfriend is not planning to settle down with you;

  • He is not focused on the relationship goals you made.
  • He doesn’t include you in his future even when he talks about it.
  • He doesn’t want to invest in anything profitable with you.
  • He is only focused on the current moment.
  • He doesn’t care about fixing any misunderstandings with you.
  • He doesn’t put any effort into the relationship.

There are so many signs that I could have shared with you but unfortunately, I’m writing about another topic.

 

So, if you have noticed any of these signs from your boyfriend and he ended up introducing you as a friend to his family yet you are in a serious relationship then know that your boyfriend is not with you to stay.

 

He is going to leave you anytime soon.

 

Your boyfriend knew introducing you as his girlfriend would have made the relationship with you to his family official and that is what he was trying to avoid.

 

If your boyfriend is not taking you seriously and the way he treats you says that then you should know he is not there to stay.

Your boyfriend is embarrassed by you and that is why he introduced you as a friend to his family.

 

If your boyfriend is embarrassed by you then this will be an open thing for you to see.

 

You won’t need much to notice that your boyfriend is embarrassed by you.

 

When your boyfriend is embarrassed by you he will always try to hide you from the public eye.

 

The moment you are just the two of you he will treat you like a princess but when you get out of those four walls he will act like he doesn’t know you.

 

So, if this is something you noticed from your boyfriend then know that he is embarrassed by you and that is why he introduced you as a friend to his family yet you are in a relationship.

 

Does your boyfriend take you out and hold your hands in public?

 

Does he ignore you when he is with his friends?

 

Does he introduce you as a friend even to his friends?

5. He is not yet ready to introduce you as his girlfriend.

This is something you should know.

 

If your boyfriend is not yet ready to introduce you as his girlfriend then he will not do it.

 

I have been telling you that when a guy chooses to introduce you to his family then it’s a big deal.

 

When a guy introduces you to his family as his girlfriend then know that that relationship is going to be official.

 

And when this happens, it means that there is no turning back from that because you are not just dating.

 

You are at another level of your relationship and much will be expected from you.

 

Your boyfriend will have many expectations from you and this will apply to his family too.

 

And this can put the two of you under pressure especially if you were not ready to make the relationship official.

 

So, if your boyfriend is not ready to introduce you as his girlfriend to his family then he will not do it.

 

If he is not ready to make the relationship official then know that he will never be ready for you to meet his family.

 

He will do everything possible to make sure that you don’t meet his family.

 

But if you manage to meet his family and he wasn’t ready to introduce you as his girlfriend to his family simply because he wasn’t ready to make the relationship official then he will introduce you as a friend.

 

Before a guy chooses to make a relationship official there is so much for him to consider.

 

This is because it’s a very big step in your relationship.

 

6. He perceives you as a friend.

For how long have you been dating? Are you sure that you are in a relationship with him?

 

These are some of the questions you should ask yourself. It can be that you are wondering why he introduced you as a friend but you are forgetting about this part.

 

Does he perceive you as his girlfriend?

 

It can be that he is only considering you as a friend or a friend with benefits.

 

If you have never made it clear to each other that you are dating then you should not conclude that he is your boyfriend.

 

The moment you move too fast in a relationship with someone without talking about what you expect from each other except you only focus on the pleasure then know that someone will never consider that you are dating.

 

And that is why you must communicate with someone before you choose to commit to each other.

 

Even if you know someone has feelings for you don’t just assume he will want to be with you.

 

Don’t ever assume anything in a relationship and how someone feels about you.

 

It can be that he introduced you as a friend simply because he knows you are not in a serious relationship, you are only hooking up.

 

No guy would want to introduce his hookup as a girlfriend to his family.

 

Also, if your relationship is a mess and it’s complicated to a point that you don’t know if you are dating or not then this might be another reason why your boyfriend introduced you as a friend to his family.

If your boyfriend introduced you as a friend to his family the first thing you should do is to ask him why he did it. If he won’t give you a clear explanation as to why he did so then walk away from him. End the relationship since this is clear that he doesn’t love you.

 

But if he gave you an explanation that you are fine with and there are no issues with how he treats you then you should not worry about anything.

 

The only thing you should talk about with him is making the relationship official.

 

Let him know that at one point he will have to introduce you as his girlfriend to his family.

 

Lastly…

 

If notice that your boyfriend is not taking you seriously, he doesn’t give you the attention you want, he treats you badly and he doesn’t show any signs that he wants to settle down with you and lastly he introduced you as a friend to his family then know that he doesn’t love you.

 

The only thing you can do if this is what you see in your relationship is to walk away from him.

 

End the relationship with him and find someone else who will value you.

 

Someone who will treat you the way you want to be treated, someone who will be proud to have you and ready to show you the world that you are his.

 

Not someone who will hide you in his shadow and only claim to love you when you are in the darkness.

 

You deserve better than that.
