how many dates in / how long / should you ever ?
(contribute to an office discussion centric)
with my friends anyway
I think sometimes you can really get a feel of what someone might be like by meeting their friends.
I remember I start seeing someone and I really didn't like his friends from the start. And I began to realise he was just like them, making comments about women with me next to him and stuff...and generally showing off and being a complete nme haircut knob.
If I ever meet someone I like I always make sure my friends meet them as soon as I know as it's going somewhere. Just go out, take the lady, get drunk have a dance and it's done.
my ex introduced me to his mates/and cousin, his cousin is a bit of a lightweight when it comes to booze and loses the plot a bit (total wanker tbf) he grabbed me in a headlock and kept being really rough.. ive never seen my ex look so ragin in all the time ive known him.. lol
i mean, really?
and shall move to Scotland with immediate affect, hoping and praying you open the door for me.
not that i know more than three people
you can definitely see things you might miss otherwise, say, if they stand there like a wet blanket not wanting to join in, or don't find similar things really funny or are really judgemental about people you like
or you might realise you find their friends incredibly boring and if you want to spend more time with them, that might be a factor in your relationship
i went out with someone who really just liked sitting at home with his flatmates watching films. that's nice, but not my idea of fun, unless i'm actually very tired and can't think of anything else to do
then go out with them and your friends, then the focus isnt entirely on you guys.
EXCEPT FOR THE ONES ON HERE. YOU ALL SMELL OF CABBAGE.
you need 360 feedback, contructive criticism. You shouldn't operate in a vacuum.
However, to get back on track, you could be making a bad decision and outside input can be useful as a counterpoint to your own thoughts. I mean, if your friends think it's a good / bad idea, and you trust their judgment, then surely it's a good idea to take their opinion into account?
maybe if you were gonna marry her...but just going out with someone, never.
is this where my I have superior friends routine comes into play, I think it might be...
Why on earth would you not want him/her to meet them? I'd also want to meet their friends as soon as possible because you can tell a lot about people that way.
I reckon when you think there's a posibility it might last, that's a good time but it doesn't really matter if it's sooner.
