Jamaica Star: Keep Playing His Game

I am an 18-year-old female living in New York. I have been with my boyfriend for almost two years. He is 25.
All we do is have sex. I ask him why we can't do something else, like go to the movies or dinner. He says he is not a movie person and that we can have dinner at home. Since we have been together, we have only been to two of his family's parties.
