I would really like some of these...but gramps doesn't like people in general. He doesn't initiate anything, so he doesn't often hang out with dudes (since it seems they don't initiate either). I'm all for making friends with someone's wife or girlfriend because I'm the more social one. I don't like dragging him out and making him socialize with people he won't like. We will be going on a 15 day cruise with my best friend and her husband...amazingly, the guys get along fabulously. They live in Tennessee, so we never get to see them. For you not-so-social, introverted hitched guys, does your wife/girlfriend want this too? Do you just have to suck it up and hang out with some dude you don't care for much?
