Am I over reacting?

Hi

I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for 4 months. Once we went to dinner with his friend (female). Almost the whole time he was talking to her and showing photos of his trip. I felt left out and afterwards I told him this and he admitted he was wrong

We went to dinner w a couple. Pretty much thru the night he was talking to his female friend mostly. Again I felt like a 3rd wheel. We met this couple again and what do you know. He was showing her photos and talking to her exclusively again. I got mad and left

Was I lever reacting or justified?

Best

Why didn't you talk to the husband and show him YOUR pictures, or ask him about his trip, and look at HIS pictures?

Well I think when there is one person who doesn't know the others, the people who do know each other should try to include the new person in the conversation.

Hi

I did try to join the conversation several times, only to be interrupted.

A week or so ago, you were here complaining about him being so busy he never had time for you on weekends, and he was involved in things you had no interest in.

Honey you feel like a 3rd wheel because he's treating you like a 3rd wheel. And this is only after 4 months when you should still be in the honeymoon so in love and into you phase. If he's this detached from you AFTER ONLY 4 MOS, how will he be a year from now? RED FLAGS flying all over the place here.
