My boyfriend won't do holidays with me

cause he doesn't think its fair to his family. We only live five minutes away from each other we are 18. I somehow feel really left out even though I guess I shouldn't cause he says we can "make our own christmas" another day and I am spending New Year's with him.

If you live so close ask him if he'd mind your stopping by his family celebration later in the day. Then you can spend your holidays with your family and also spend some time with him.

He is spending New Years eve with u. Maybe it's a tradition with his family.

I know Christmas is a big family thing for some people, but if I had a gf living five minutes away then I'd definitely spend time with her on the day. I mean, if he can't invite you round to his place (why not?) and he can't go round to yours (why not?) then he should at least be able to get away for an hour so you can sit in the car or wherever together and exchange presents and get all holiday smoochy together for a while. When I was in the 18-24 range my gf was always hundreds of miles away and I'd have loved to spend some time with her. So I can't understand your guy's attitude here.

you both are too young to be in a relationship.. If he can't include you at a family thing, even at 18 that doesnt seem reasonable..
