This entire post is going to sound immature, so before anyone feels the need to mention it, I am putting it out there.
My SO and I were in his car last night heading to pick up some takeout for dinner, and he mentioned the summer weekend trip he is taking with his friends. I have known about it for awhile and I haven’t really wasted any time dwelling on it, although the 2 buddies that orchestrated the trip are pigs, for lack of a better word. I love them, they are hilarious and an absolute blast to hang out with… but they are man whores. Mind you, they are in their late 30’s… so I can’t even chalk it up to “oh, they are young.” They just live an alternative lifestyle.
When they invited my SO on this short trip, they made it clear that no wives or girlfriends were invited. It is a “guys trip” (:::rolls eyes:::) So all of the guys going are leaving their partners home to bake pies and do laundry (kidding). Once again, I don’t really care, it is one weekend a year. I wasted my 20’s hyperventilating about trips that my various ex boyfriends would go on… at this stage in the game I am not about to beg someone to reconsider going because I am not invited.
What will most of his single buddies do on the trip? Well, they will drink in excess and try to pick up women, or, girls i should say. My SO assures me “that is not what will be happening” but of course it is, I know this group of friends, I have partied right along side them. As long as my SO doesn’t take anyone back to the hotel, it is what it is. Go be a good wingman.
So with all of that background info. out of the way, there was one little comment that came out of my SO’s mouth that bothered me.
I semi-jokingly asked him if he planned to “pull a Scott” (his friend) (which is to pick up the most promiscuous/obnoxious girl at a bar and take her home). He looked at me and very matter of factly said “NO! I am soo out of shape right now.”
Wait… what? You don’t look attractive enough right now to cheat? That is your answer? He responded with “No, you know I wouldn’t do that.” Umm good save?
I have always trusted him. I think he flirts and parties along side his friends when they get together, but I never pinned him as the type who would cross the line, however, that comment is making me a little uneasy. and a litte nauseous.
ETA: I have been cheated on by an ex in the past, while on a guys trip, so I do bring some insecurity to the table.
