Is it related to fairness? Does he go out socialising significantly more than you? Some people have a very strong sense of fairness and it can really upset them if something feels unfair - even though they don't wish to be bothered by it.

I get mad because we live apart and he often doesn’t tell me when he has plans. His ex had huge trust issues so he’s in the habit of not telling me stuff like that assuming I’ll be up all night wondering what he is doing
It is pushing me away big time because I think it’s pathetic
