Even if it is casual, shouldn't he introduce me?

Recently, my boyfriend and I were out with a small group of friends. He ran into a co-worker of his that I had never met. They chatted for a while, and then the co-worker left. I was never introduced to this co-worker.


I was a bit bothered by this, and said something about it. My boyfriend claimed he didn't want to interrupt their conversation to make an introduction, and was trying not to be rude to the co-worker.

While I can't blame him for not wanting to interrupt, I still feel it would have been polite to be introduced. Is there a time frame within an immediate conversation one should wait before introducing your significant other? Is my boyfriend obligated at all to introduce me to his co-worker?

He should have...
by: Cerise

I would take it more seriously. Over many years of listening to clients (manicurist) talk of relationships, manners are an important factor in the relationship. The more intimate the relationship becomes or more time spent together even if the relationship remains casual, the more important they are, if you are a person who values them (I wish everyone did).
He should have introduced you, it would have taken seconds.

Yes he should
by: Eunice

Yes, he could have gone, before ending his conversation, "Oh by the way, this is Kate".

If it happens once or twice, let it go and pretend not to notice.

If it happens a third time, just join in the conversation, "I know, yes he has been SOOO busy. By the way, hi, I'm kate!"

He should get the hint after.
