yeah, you'd be surprised how many dudes are pussies, too.

Last season I was dating this guy and we went on a weekend trip to mammoth. His first time at a "real" resort, there was a lot of hand holding.... Putting up with that was bad enough. The icing on the cake was on sunday morning he just wanted to lay in bed all day. Since you know, he had to relax before our 6 hour drive home and his legs hurt from those really long runs


I kitted up and rode by myself. Found a buddy headed back to LA. So I called up the boy and told him to go home without me. He was cute, too

sorry buddy, but you're being a pussy. if i was getting this trip together and you came at me with "i'm not going unless i can bring her with" i'd be all like "fuck no, just forget about it"

- and you wouldn't get another invite. ever.

At the same time it all depends on how your wife is and the relationship you have with her. But like on of the other guys said. After a kid or two, you will want to hang out with the guys again. So dont keep them distant, or get too close with them, otherwise you will have a completely different conflict with the wife being mad at you about hanging out with the guys too much.
I have to admit I think a big part of the issue is that this guys been kind of a dick since I started dating her. He doesn't appreciate that I'm in a serious relationship, he treats his gf like a piece of trash and probably wonders why I can't do the same. his lifes been getting shittier while mines been getting better, he takes a week to text me back... so ya I think if he was beingcool and respected her/us and asked me to go for a few days I would go an she would be fine with it. But 4 days with a bunch of dudes that don't really respect either of us... its a bit different.

There are women like this, but your gf/wife is not one of those people.

Its not the end of the world and it isn't anyone's fault. I will probably have a similar conundrum if/when I take my gf snowboarding with a group this season.

Dunno. You can't do everything. Wierd isn't it? There isn't always a way to please everyone, but there is almost always a way to piss everyone off.
This is the truth, easy to piss people off... guess its better to piss of the ones that don't mean much to me anymore.

what's with the "us" deal.

Here's the deal, anytime a guy invites a friend to come hang out with other dudes, it is never kosher to ask a wife/gf/hooker/tundrawookie/gnargoyle/etc. along. That's man-code 101.

it doesn't matter if it's a football game, trip to the bar, trip to a resort. Don't be *THAT* guy.

The only question you need to be asking yourself, is do *YOU* wanna hang out with those guys. Leave your girl out of the equation.

Now there is some clarity. 2 years ago the answer would be yes. These days I've seen a much different side and the answer is becoming no. As for other 4, no not really at all. When this started there was no mention of anyone else - it was not a big "bro trip" and they are not my bros, only one of them is/was.

Dude, you're a pussy. This is coming from a guy who is married and has been with his wife for over 10 years now. Get your balls back now or lose them forever. You may lose the girl in the process, but you're in straight up bitch mode right now.

The relationships that last do so in large part because both people retain their individuality to a certain extent. They don't have to involve their partner in every aspect of their lives.

Sounds to me like maybe you should re-evaluate your friendship if the guy is consistently a douschebag. Guys will always give each other a hard time, but a true friend will understand and respect you for the personal choices you make.

That being said, bringing a clingy, less-skilled girl on a bro trip also sounds kind of like a douschebag move.
