I was wondering what you all thought how akward it would be to introduce your partner/fiance/husband to your elementry, middle school, high school and college friends to eachother. I had a friend who told me she was going to her hs reunions alone because no one knows her husband and it would be akward to introduce them to him saying this is my life and because he would be bored.
have you introduce your hubbys or partners to your friends from grade school to college? if not would you have considered having joint friends to share with your partner who you went to grade school, high school, and college with if your hubby didnt go to the same school as you?

I don’t see why it would be awkward.
Then again I haven’t bothered going to any official reunions of any kind. But I have friends from all those categories… they have met Fiance and it wasn’t awkward or boring.

I love introducing DH to old friends, but he doesn’t find a lot of point to it unless it’s someone I am actually still good friends with. In that case, he gets to hear stories of when we were younger and gets a kick out of it. But if we’re talking barely even acquiantances anymore, I wouldn’t put him through the misery of dragging him around and shoving into the faces of people who’s last names I can’t remember.

I think it would be fun! But I’m in a different situation: SO and I went to the same college, HS and Mid School, (different elem. schools, but all the kids went on to mid and hs together) so we know the same people. It’s always fun when I get to meet my girlfriends’ new guy, and sometimes I wish I had someone to bring home too. I’m just finishing up my first semester of grad school, though, so now I have new friends to introduce to SO. It’s not the same as knowing people for years and then getting to show off your guy, because I’m still getting to know these people as well.

I don’t think it would be awkward at all. I really didn’t keep in touch with friends from high school but if I went to a reunion, I’d have no problem taking and introducing DH (Heck – I’d love to show him off!).
DH has introduced my to multiple of his high school friends and now we all get to hang out together.

SO’s met quite a few of my HS friends, I haven’t stayed in contact with a lot of college friends, but I would introduce him, and he’s actually meeting the only person I still talk to from elementary school this coming weekend. He’s still friends with most of his HS friends, and we hang out with them fairly regularly. Our actual weekly hangout tends to be with one of his best friend’s from HS, and a friend of mine that I went to HS with who I never really talked to in school.
Who I’d really like to introduce him to are my elementary school bullies, but more as a “look at me now” type of thing,

I guess i feel a little better. I mean I sort think its weird and akward but it shouldent bother me much if im introducing my future SO to friends in states that I have family at. I have moved around a lot in my life. elementry school and middle school I spent it in Michigan in my hometown called Oxford. High school I went to three high schools. two in Virginia ie ashburn Virginia, and one in stafford virginia which I have a bunch of friends in Ashburn virginia but not stafford. then I went to my third high school in Cedar rapids iowa and graduated there and thats where a huge number of my high school friends are from. Then I went to two community colleges. one in cedar rapids and one in council bluffs iowa and i live in the omaha nebraska/council bluffs area. i guess it shouldent be that akward introducing my friends to my future so in michigan and omaha/council bluffs since thats where family is at.
have any of you all moved around a lot but introduced your so to friends where family dosnt live near by?

@outgoingcutie15: My FH attended my high school 10 year reunion with me. It was actually comforting for me to have someone that I could safely gossip with in the corner. I wasn’t that popular in high school so even though I knew a lot of people, I was never really close with any of them.

I would be SO unhappy if Fiance wanted to go to his reunions alone! I can’t wait to show him off at his next one!
