What do you do when your boyfriend starts acting like hunting is more important than me ?

he only gets to hunt from october to january and before hunting came along he was different and i dont say much because i play ball all the time but i dont want to feel like i'm second to hunting.. when i try to tell him how i feel, he gets mad and thinks i'm just trien to argue & it seems thats all we have been doing lately.. until i finally broke down saturday..

The best thing you can do is take up hunting and go with him. My wife hunts with me every year which is good because she does not mind all the time it takes to prepare for the season, all our gear piled up, then the time during the actual season and then all the clean up after. Of all my hunting buddies, I am the only one whose wife hunts also. They don't mind her being along because she is serious about it and a good hunter. I never hear that I hunt too much like the rest of my friends do. Don't try to compete with his hunting time though, you'll probably lose. It is just something some guys really want to do. Must come from prehistoric times

Try going along. It would be a good thing if he had the patience to teach you how. He might not want to take you this year but ask him to teach you how during the off season. It is a great thing to have common interests and it will contribute to a lasting relationship.

The best way to address this issue is by approaching your boyfriend and telling him how you feel. It is very normal for someone to become a slave of an activity,the conversation should also mention hunting as a fun activity in order to avoid hurting his feelings. You can also create time and accompany him on his hunting trips as this will make him notice you.

Approach your boyfriend about it. I know how it feels. Talk to him about it. If he doesnt change his ways I think its time to say goodbye to him.

Your wrong hunting is away for men/women to deal with stress

Why should he stop doing something he enjoys cause she's jealous? Maybe he should say goodbye

idts there buddy. thats your opinion of the situation.. its kinds hard from being together all the time to hardly none because of hunting!

If he wants to quit or cut down then that's ok. If she keeps pushing for him to quit he just might choose hunting over her. She's a girlfriend not wife. They need to talk and work something out.

Listen I kno this is gonna sound bad but hunting And fishing is away for a man/woman to get away from everybody and just think its a break for them and he probably does make u feel like Ur 2nd but trust me if he loves u he is thinking about u why he is out there and if u want to be with him go with him try to get involved with it to show him you love him

If you keep complaining about him doing something he enjoys he might go hunting for someone that might enjoy it with him. Hunting is part of who he is. Either except it or let him go. Your choice.

its kind of normal for hunters to do that because they focus on the shooting more then anything else around that time. so talk to him at least a little more when hes not in the woods.
