    Well my three year old daughter but she'll be in bed by 8 or 9pm.

    They have two kids as well which I assumed would be there but his email said "with the kids in Belgium there's plenty of room" so I'm guessing they're off for some vacation at his or her parents.
    Yeah I think thats a bit weird. How well do you know her?

    Called it

    I guess this is topical.

    A very good friend of mine that I've known for about 17 or 18 years lives in France. He's been with his wife for idunno. Maybe 10 years or 12 or so.
    They used to live in Moscow, then Paris, now the south of France, so I don't see them regularly. I've only ever seen/met his Mrs when I was visiting the two of them. I'd call them both friends but clearly my connection to them is through him, not her.

    I've sent them an email last month to see if I can stop over for a few days when I take my daughter on vacation in August.
    He's replied last week that he'll be in Moscow for work at that time but i should definitly come to visit sometime.

    I've just informed him that's a shame and we'll try to find a suitable weekend for a visit.

    He's now pinged back an email saying that his Mrs doesn't mind hosting me and my daughter whilst he's away for work in Moscow. Their kids are in Belgium so there's plenty of room for guests.

    According to the logic of this thrad, does that mean his wife wants to take advantage of me whilst he's away?
    This is sort of a different thing to the situations others are saying.

    I've been in the same situation and set up the same situation with my friend staying at home with my wife while I'm away. These are obviously different situations to the ones being argued about in this thread so I don't know why some people are purposely missing this point.

    I realise it's not 100% the same but when i got the email 30 minutes ago I had to smile and think of this topic.

    You might be on to something. I'll check in with you nearer the date when I've got a clue of where I might be going.
    No hitting on my wife though!!

    Not as nice as I used to be

    You constantly lied to your gf about seeing girls behind her back. She was obviously unhappy with it. You call her a fucking moron as a result. Yeah, you are the problem there.
    I got shot of her because of it. I wanted to spend time with my friends that I knew since before I met her. She wasn't happy, I tried discussing it. She wouldn't listen. I was 17 at the time.

    I think he should go for it, his mate has offered her up. Friends are strangers until they meet etc

    Yeah totally, when she says she's going to bed, ask what side she's going to take, then jump in the other. Nothing is going to happen after all, right, and I'm sure his friend won't mind...

    To quote mark from Peep Show, I know what Ill do, thinks Mark. Ill wait until shes sleeping, and then Ill touch her hair.

    He means that with him being away, there's plenty of room in her vagina.

    However you spend enough time with one person that starts off platonic but feelings can develop as you get to know them and you only see the bad things about your current partner, and see that grass is greener on the other side of the fence, and it's something new and exciting etc etc

    It's how so many relationships end.
    Too true.
    Git.

    I guess the grass IS greener.

    Yeah ask your mate if you can sleep in the same bed as her and let us know what the reaction is.

I'm still in regular contact with a handful of what I would close friends from my school days but everyone else has been since I moved away. Wife's very sociable so I've inherited a lot of her friends too, and in the main most of their other halves are cool. Some I'm closer to than others.

    Then you make friends with other parents of your kid's. Some of which end up closer than others.

    Consider myself quite fortunate tbh.
    Other parents of your kids???!

    You should have asked her WHY she wasn't happy with you seeing other girls, instead of just going out and lying to her. There was probably an underlying reason for her having jealousy or trust issues that needed to be brought to the table. Why do you have so many female friends anyway? Are blokes not good enough for you?

    Probably cos she was a teenager, insecure and immature.

    I split up with my wife last December, gutted really, after 15 years she was my best friend. Mutual friends and my old neighbours may as well have dumped me also.
    I have mates through work, known most 10 years or more. Most are busy with full time families, like I used to be.

    I go out cycling daily but don't fancy joining a club.

    At the moment I'm considering learning a foreign language or turning to Christianity.

    It's probably because you're a weirdo and most men think you're a bit of a prick.

    I find that being a weed smoker is a great way to meet new people, stoners tend to subconsciously gravitate towards each other and finding a new supply or sharing your stash is a great way to make friends.

    On the downside, most of my friends are lazy drop outs.

    I made an adult friend yesterday! One of the chefs from work. Had a day off and it involved a mini pub crawl followed by shooting air rifles at paper targets and drinking jagermeister and sangria! He's ex forces and I kicked his arse at shooting and drank him under the table. Payong for it now though but it was nice to be told more than ten times that he has my back lol.

    Ex forces people I've met all tend to be a bit nuts one way or another. I give it 1 week before his extreme views start to seep out.
