    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?

    Then divorce her so you can spend more time with your girlfriend.

    My friends are guys and when there are three of us we have fun together but adding their gf's or wives always change the dynamic and make it less fun and at times torture.

    That's the problem really...I'm very social and get along with most anyone...but that doesn't mean I like them or that they won't find me to be a little "too much". I have a twisted sense of humor and the average chick is not really my cup of tea. Most of my gf's are single and he's fine hanging out with the girls. The few that do have significant others just don't seem to have enough in common with him (since he's not as social, he won't find something in everyone like I can)

    Actually, he's quite lively and outgoing when he gets out and around people...but it exhausts him and he wants to go home sooner than the average person. He doesn't like crowds though, so I wouldn't bring him anyway. He won't do concerts or other mass people places.

    :jj: I relate, some people find me to be too much as well. And somehow it's rarely the men :c.
    We are both lawyers so a lot of events we go to are mostly lawyers. I've been known to get so annoyed that I say I can't take anymore and leave abruptly. He's more reserved than I am but much more tolerant of pretentious boastful people than I am. When I need to leave I leave. I'm probably a huge pain in the ass come to think of it :jj:

    We almost always drive to parties and stuff separately now. I used to leave with him, because I think it's rude to keep him there longer than he wants to be...but I'm often not ready to go when that time comes.
