Childish fucking crap.

I'm stuck in the computer room at the moment while my GFs friends are in the kitchen having some sort of skincare lesson which I've been told to stay away from cause apparently my GF is afraid some of them would be uncomfortable with my presence. What is this, third grade? I'm a social, polite person who enjoys playing the host and I know for a fact I'm more interested in the subject than at least half the people in attendance. What kind of gender roles are they trying to promote anyway?

They're talking. I can hear them. I'm fairly good at talking. I could contribute to the discussion. I'm not allowed to though. And the worst thing is they don't know it and think I'm an introvert buffoon. It's really, really infuriating.

Invite your male friends around for a facial sauna, exfoliate and moisturising session.

Time to invite your boys over and some strippers.

Male strippers to make her jealous obviously.

Let me get this straight. You want to hang out with your girlfriend's friends (wait, aren't you married?) while they discuss makeup and skin care?

:lol:

Sulk, and make her make it up to you.

She just thinks her friends wouldn't be comfortable with a guy around. Get used to it. Some people probably wouldn't be comfortable with you around. Besides, she's made it vastly apparent that these friends are more important to her then you are. That's the problem with being a reasonable partner. You are the constant that can be tossed over for more interesting fare, because you'll always be there.

I'm wondering why, exactly, though. Most of her friends are perfectly okay with me, to the extent of them being "our friends" by this point, but one in particular (who initiated this "session") she practically hides me from. When confronted with it she claims it's because she hasn't got that good contact with her, which seems a fairlystrange answer.

You really do enjoy dakstarring, don't you? :rolleyes: There's a back story to this but suffice to say that entire paragraph is bollocks.

surely this is just some perfectly reasonable girl/boy insecurity thing

they don't want you to see them without their makeup on or with shit all over their face or something, that's not hard to understand

God, why can't they all grow up? It's not like I'd be hitting on them, I'm already in a perfectly happy relationship. ;)

It is a bit sad, I mean if you really are interested in barbie dolls and talking about boys, then surely more the merrier!

I would have thought that natural boredom alone would be enough to keep you from seeing them "naked".

Waittaminute, are you actually arguing for doing the teenage boy "shuffling from front door to computer without saying hello" thing?

I have to beg for my wife to do girlie meetings like that, in order to get some free time to game

what are you complaining about?

Not at all! You go in there, say hi, ask how everyone is doing....they start doing whatever it is they do, you politely say "I'll leave you to it then" (or words to that effect) then leave.

That's the way it normally works. Banning you seems a bit childish - unless they know you are a junkie for that sort of thing and are going to steal all their make up and new outfit ideas?

this suddely resurfaces a long buried memory, when I was 6-8 I had to attend to the Stanhome / Tupperware / whatever meetings (yes we had them in Italy too 40 years ago...) my mother kept at home, because "it was polite" and the ladies enjoyed having a kid around....
:eek:

It doesn't matter, you're still a guy and they don't want to look unattractive in front of you

She doesn't want you around that friend. You have to figure out the why. Is it because she's afraid you two will start talking and you'll find out things? Or the other way around? Or is it just that she wants her own space, and wants to reserve that friend from you so that she always has that "private" space to retreat from you?

You really do enjoy dakstarring, don't you? :rolleyes: There's a back story to this but suffice to say that entire paragraph is bollocks.

:violin: Then why are you crying about it? The obvious answer is that you feel like you aren't as important to her as her friends at that moment. She told you to buzz off for a bit. If you don't get over these feelings when she wants to not have you around and do something else, especially with other people, you are going to be a miserable partner.

I think the only time that smily is appropriate is when it is the only response.

All the text just seems like over explanation.

Cool. Now all I've got to do is use all the others to make them all dead, and then Nav can remove all the smilies.

Next up, :rolleyes:!

what I can't understand is why you didn't seize the chance to go out for a pint with your mates or you could've gone round to another pals house whilst she had a girly night in ??
The vast majority of fellas would run for the hills at the thought of a bunch of girly's getting together to have a pampery gossipy night in.
- It was your choice to stay at home, that being the case many lads would've said a quick hello and happily retreated to their PC for an uninterrupted gaming sesh. for heavens sake its just one night- what do you do....live in each other's pockets?.. I'm not convinced she is the one being childish here.

An ideal solution. Make sure you take up the only bathroom and tell them to stay out of it or else your male friends might get uncomfortable having women around. ;)

Obviously her secret lesbian lover. I'd rush next door and ask for a threesome. ;)

First mistake you made was meekly agreeing to hide in the PC room. If she makes an unreasonable demand, it's your right, nay, your obligation as a man to have a stand-up argument with her, then storm out of the house. Come back at 4am barely able to walk and with no memory of the last 6 hours. :beer:
