Should I tell the truth?

My boyfriend went out of town on Friday for a week vacation. I went out with my daughter to dinner and we then stopped at a bar. I told my bf that we went to dinner and came home. He doesn't like if I don't tell him the truth. I was afraid he would be mad. Now it is driving me crazy that I lied. Should I tell him, or will it ruin his vacation? Should I wait until he gets home, tell now, or not say anything? We are adults and have been together many years. He has a temper and I tend to get very emotional and depressed.Right now I have alot of anxiety.

Welcome to the board, Strong2006 ~

No, I don't think there's anything wrong with an adult making a decision to go to a bar by themselves or with others whether they're in a relationship or not.

Well, I told him the truth. He didn't get mad, but said I guess that you will just run to the bars when I go out of town.

I think the big problem is that you feel that you had to hide from your BF the fact that you went to a bar, when you didn't cheat or do anything wrong.
