Okay, why is it when you have a girlfriend/boyfriend that goes out of state to visist family members and relatives in another state(like Arkansas), you ask(when you're having a conversation between you two) them in general what have them and their family had done while they were up their and they say"nothin"?

Even though they say on their facebook status that they"had a blast with family".

I think it means they are secretly messing around behind your back using family as cover (sarcasm)

Is this a man were talking about? I get this answer about nearly everything (except work) when I ask my bf how drinks with the guys, dinner with his mom, outings with his sisters went.

Ask them.

I can have a blast with family and not really do anything noteworthy to base a conversation around. If I visit family, and just sit and talk about random stuff, I can thoroughly enjoy myself without having much to report back to other people.

They say that when they think you will criticize them or ruin their experience somehow.

Now that you mention this, there is a lot of truth here.

It could mean they're not interesting in weighing you down with minutia. Drinking beer is drinking beer, going to a BBQ is going to a BBQ, etc, etc, until the end of time.

She isn't obligated to tell you anything. Maybe there was nothing notable. I don't say much about my trips either no matter who I went with.
