Hi Carolyn: My boyfriend seemingly has no good friends. He used to live in a house with the people I’d call his “good” friends, but they all moved out and into their own places … without telling him, which tells me they didn’t want to live with him anymore.

He’s friends with the guys in my friend group, but they’ll go on guys’ trips and won’t invite him.
