Unhappy I want it to just be us... - October 8th 2010, 10:45 PM

My oldest brother and I get along pretty well. If you look at how well my other siblings' and I get along, you'd think that Eric and I were best friends. A friend of his is staying at our house, and tonight is his last night. He's been here for a month and I've hardly gotten to see my brother for that time. I'm really upset right now because Eric and I were going to go to a haunted house tomorrow night, which is a big deal to me because I've never gone to one that I've enjoyed before, and I know that I'm going to enjoy it now. He asked me at dinner which haunted house I wanted to go to, and I told him that we should look some up online. He then asked his friend if he wanted to come with us. Eric(my brother's friend, same name, very confusing), said sure. I don't want him to come! Call me selfish but Eric(my brother) promised me that it would just be us two! My brother promised me that the first haunted house that I would go to would be just him and me. I almost cried at the dinner table, I miss my brother and I want him back! He saw the look on my face and muttered "Sorry". I know that it's mean, but I don't want his friend to come along with us. His friend is mean to me, and he'll make fun of me when I scream. He'll have my brother's attention all night, like he has for an entire month. I don't want to just tell Eric that I don't want Eric(wow, that sounds odd) to come with us, but I really don't want his friend to come. He promised me at the beginning of summer that in October we'd go to a haunted house together, and my first time going it'd be just us.

I understand how you feel - my brother is also staying with my family for a temporary amount of time. You may want to tell him straight up about this situation with his friend, and ask if it could be just the two of you. Say that you were hoping it would just be the two of you. Hope I helped

I would pull your brother aside and remind him that it was supposed to be just the two of you. Try to avoid sounding whiny while telling him how you feel, though... just show him how much it would mean if you and him had that time to yourselves. Volunteer to tell his friend the "bad news", so your brother doesn't have to go through the potentially awkward situation of "uninviting" his friend, or maybe your brother can just tell his friend that he forgot about his promise to you. Good luck!
