I work around the corner from Hooters– so occasionally co workers and I will go grab lunch on Fridays and hang out if it’s a particularly slow day at the office. Darling Husband rarely ever goes to Hooters because it’s too far from our house and Buffalo Wild Wings has better wings , anyway.Occasionally we will go together ( maybe once a year- if that!)
I mentioned the above scenario to a friend, and she admitted she was uncomfortable with her husband going to places like Hooters or Twin Peaks because of the obvious sexualization/ scandalous attire .
Upon her mentioning it, I saw where she was coming from or could understand why it would bother someone…. However; in MY relationship, I am the Hooters frequenter lol. If Darling Husband wanted to go for boys night, it wouldn’t bother me.
Do you have an issue with your SO visiting a Hooter-like establishments? Why or why not?
PS- part of the reason for this poll is that I am hungry!

You see more scandalous attire at the beach- I’ve been to Hooters enough to know that’s it’s no big deal.

Honestly it probably depends what mood I’m in. If i’m in one of my insecure woe is me type moods then I might bitch about it a little bit. Realistically though, I really don’t care. There are hotter and even more scantily clad waitresses at plenty of other establishments. I think that would be silly to be concerned about that sort of thing unless he was a regular patron and the waitress was putting the moves on him or something. I think most waitresses flirt a bit to get tips. It’s not like they’re interested and going to steal your man or whatever.

It’s funny that you brought this up as I’ve had this discussion with Darling Husband before when Hooters first moved into the general area (several years ago at least). He’s gone there before with some friends for lunch and didn’t always tell me. In his mind, he didn’t tell me because he didn’t care about the scandalous attire and only went there because his friends wanted to go. So to him, it was no different than going to another restaurant, which is why he didn’t tell me. He hasn’t been there in ages as far as I know, but after going there once or twice with him, I could tell he really wasn’t all that excited by the attire. He checks out more women at the mall that are fit and dressed in pretty, tasteful outfits than the Hooters girls. FWIW, Darling Husband is also not into strippers and nudie bars either.
So I think it depends on the SO whether it’s a problem or not. Mine isn’t attracted to that kind of look so for him, it really is just about the food (which he’s not really all that into anyway).

It’s not a big deal for me, my husband has gone there for a few fantasy football drafts and I rolled my eyes. It’s so cheesy and the food sucks, but if it makes him happy go crazy, kid.

Nah, I don’t care, because I don’t worry about how my Fiance feels about those chicks, or myself. I know his feelings 🙂
Not only that… but have you been to Hooters recently? I don’t think there’s any need for a girl to be jealous unless Hooters makes changes, haha. Last time I went there, I swear I felt like I must be back in the 90’s. 😛

Since I myslef don’t have hooters (I have bee stings) I would not want my SO to go oogle some girls tatas.

@KatyElle: fantasy football is what brought this discussion up between my friend and me! Darling Husband went to BWWs and her husband went to Twin Peaks ( much like Hooters) so that is what spurred the conversation!

I wouldn’t mind terribly, although I don’t frequent them. Fiance won’t go to a Hooters though, because he says it, “freaks him out.” So, I guess I don’t really have to worry about it.

Wouldnt care… you can see the same revealing clothing walking down the street sometimes. Heck, when we do see it on the stree, I point out hot women to him to check out with me.

@StephieBee: Omg YES! I was just about to write that I don’t even think their outfits are particularly scandalous, in fact to me they really just look dated (hot pants with NYLONS AND SNEAKERS? wut?!).

I wouldn’t care if he went, but he wouldn’t…because their food is awful.

Doesn’t bother me. It’s a restaurant establishment. Like @pinkshoes says, how is it any diff from walking around out at the mall and we come across scantily clad women?
I would think that our marriage is strong and secure enough that Hooters wouldn’t cause much of a discussion or argument.
