Ugh. So, I’m supposed to go to a bridal show with two of my gal pals today. We’ve been planning it for about a month and I’ve been super excited to spend time with the two of them – you know, girl time.
Get a text from the one driving just a few minutes ago to ask if the guy she’s seeing can come.
I texted back that I’d prefer it was girl’s only, to which she responded that she left him home yesterday and doesn’t want to do it again.
So now there’s going to be some guy tagging along with us and afioadjfinfletnekltnegsjgis.
He’s a nice guy. I’ve been on plenty of outings with him before, but this is just going to be sort of awkward.
Needed to vent somewhere, so I figured I’d drop this here so I get it all out before they come to get me.

who cares if she has to leave him home? I am assuming he can manage without her.

That’s kinda rude- I would be annoyed too… Hopefully she doesn’t make it a regular thing, or next thing he’ll be at your pedicure appointments 🙂
Try to enjoy the day because it’s all about you and your wedding! Who knows, maybe he’ll have good man input? Some guys surprise you? Make the best of the situation since it’s the one you’re in now.. Good luck!

Very lame on your friends part. I also can’t believe this guy would want to go. Strange. Hope you have fun anyway!

i understand how you’re feeling, I’ve gone through something like that myself and it annoyed the crap out of me. Its like,”really? you’re going to put some guy in the way of girl time?” thats wrong on so many levels, ESPECIALLY if its a bridal show! the guy is going to be miserable and your friend will def be distracted by that. Can’t the guy spend a few hours in the area while you girls to your thing? if i were that guy, thats what i would do.
Sorry, some people just dont understand. Hope you still have fun, dont let it ruin your day 🙂

Yeah, I’m gonna just make the best of it because I don’t see one of the girls who’s coming very often but it is kind of aggravating. She does this a lot when it comes to him, whether it’s coming late/ditching stuff we’ve got planned or bringing him along. But life is what you make it, so I’m sure we’ll still have a good time.
Thanks, Bees 🙂

OP totally get where you are coming from I have a gf like that to. Any time she is with a guy he has to come with even if it is to be supposed to be a girls time..IT is annoying. I feel for you

I think your friend is totally out of line in wanting to bring her guy to a special, all-girl’s outing. But if it makes you feel better, your friend is going to be in SO much more hot water with her guy after she drags him around a bridal show for the day. I hope he makes her go with him to a tractor pull, or a monster truck show, or the bloodiest, goriest slasher movie to make it up to him. A bridal show is the absolute LAST place that a guy wants to be. I work at our local show for work, and 9 out of 10 of the FIANCES do NOT WANT TO BE THERE. Some random guy that’s dating your friend is DEFINITELY not going to want to be there.
I really, really hope he doesn’t ruin your day. 🙁 Tell your friend that he can come, but if he complains ONCE that he has to go sit in the car.

That’s so rude. I would be annoyed too. The guy can survive without her for a couple hours for goodness sakes. And why in the WORLD would he agree to go to a bridal show?! DH would gladly stay at home with the remote and a few beers if I ever asked him to go to a bridal show!!!

That’s really dumb. It always makes me wonder WHY when I have people do this. Is it the guy? The girl? Something else? Lol. Needless to say, I definitely feel you. :/ Awkward guys at girl things are not fun.

I also find it very strange that her response was that she had left him home yesterday??? What does that matter?? I leave my FH home alone on the weekend while I go shopping or pick stuff up or have lunch dates with friends I don’t see very often, and no one gets upset about it. Sounds like he might have been the one complaining about it, in any regard, it SOUNDS like they have a weird joined at the hip thing going on. That stuff creeps me out

@andilene: Haha, right? It sounds like it’s her pet. “Oh, I left him at home instead of taking him along with me.” Um….

@AmeliaBedelia: Exactly! I mean he isn’t a dog (that I know of lol)
