Is it just the fact that the two of you are not getting along that makes you uncomfortable? I don't feel extremely comfortable even when out with a group of all my friends, much less people I don't know. It might just be generalized anxiety disorder. If that's the case, you could try a low dose of xanax, otherwise he just needs to understand that it could be very stressful to bring you into an environment such as that. If he still doesn't understand, tell him to shave off his eyebrows and go out on a date with you.(That way he can see how it feels to be uncomfortable the entire night) I really feel that the problem is much deeper than I can see, in which case, I would have a completely different answer. I hope this helps.
