My boyfriend travels a lot for work. Last night he was supposed to be staying at a particular hotel. When I didn't hear from all night, and he didn't pick up his cell, I called the hotel and they said he wasn't registered. I called him at his desk (at the travel location) -- he picked up (unaware that I'd been calling his cell all night and unaware that I knew he wasn't at that hotel). He said he went right home after dinner last night. I asked where his cell phone was he said he forgot it today. I clarified that I meant last night. He said he left it where he stayed. I asked where he stayed. He said the hotel. I asked which hotel. He gave me the same hotel he original told me about -- I told him I knew he wasn't registered there and that he didn't go back to wherever his phone was last night. He said he stayed at a friends because it got late. No further explanation. He was very silent when I said I just wanted to know the truth. Eventually he said something like "I need to think about how we interact."
I said: "Look if you are just going to try to turn this into some offensive to distract me from what happened last night -- forget it. It's not gonna work. If you want to convince me that you really are staying at that hotel, send me the receipt when you check out today." Silence. So I said: "I think we both know there won't be any receipt."
Then he said something like "I'll call you later" and that was it.
So he's totally cheating, right? That or he was out all night doing drugs. And I gotta say, he doesn't seem like the drug addict type. At all.
