Guy bringing girlfriend no one likes
Mon, 11-10-2003 - 10:26am
I'm getting our volleyball group together this Friday night for a night out-dinner, bar hopping, etc. Some of us see each other on a regular basis and others just saw each other at volleyball and that was it. There will be 7 of us-my friend and her husband, my coworker and his girlfriend and another friend who all played on the team. The other guy is bringing his girlfriend of about a year who no one likes. She doesn't make any effort to speak with anyone and half the time keeps her back turned to eveyone but her boyfriend. The guy she's dating is fun and he would be the first one to tell anyone else if they were in his situation that she's not very nice. She takes the fun out of him. Maybe she is just quiet, but she comes off as not very friendly and I'm afraid that she will ruin the evening for everyone or else this other guy will leave early because she'll want to go.

I know it's no fun spending an evening with someone you don't really care for. IMO, though, you shouldn't say anything to your friend about his girlfriend (unless, of course, he asks for your opinion).

If you've made attempts at being friendly to her, and she hasn't responded, then just ignore her. While I know it'll be a little uncomfortable, there's no reason the rest of you shouldn't thoroughly enjoy your evening.

I know how you feel

My BIL who is 26 is dating this 20 yr old B***** she always rolls her eyes at me and she is the most rudest person I have ever met but I have to suck it in for he is family but since this guy is your friend - I wouldn't let one person ruin the night for everyone

I would keep my smile on and maybe someday he will wake up and realize what kind of girl this is or maybe she is young and immature like my BIL GF or maybe like you said she is a shy person and doesn't know how to connect to you guys either way try to think postive heck I am over here too =)
