Why get me jealous?

BEG went away to a job this past weekend, and while I didn't hear from him at all, I really didn't give him much thought. I was spending time with my family as my father was visiting in from California for the weekend.
I managed to text him to say hi and see what he was up to, where he quickly shot me back:
"Hanging out with Julia and some friends watching the football game, talk to you later"

Wow. Bitter much?

I felt shut out, and I felt like rubbing my Euro trip in his face, but even then I knew it'd be rude to text back and forth while his "special squeeze" was around. I felt to leave it for the next available opportunity.

I crave attention. And when he was around, it felt great, even if I knew I wouldn't give him much of my time. Moreover, he had admitted that he liked having someone to come home to, which made it evident that he was looking for a permanent tail to be at his every beck and call when he was back into town (he travels quite a bit for his job; he's sometimes out for a week at a time.)

Has anyone felt neglected or jealous because some one wasn't paying attention to you like before?
