Is this an unusual thing to do...?
I've done this.
Kinda depends on the parents though.
i think 20 odd years ago it would have been very unusual. ain't times liberal
yeah, probably a bit weird
I would find it more unusual if the parents didn't allow it.
i'm winning the argument :)
well, her mum was.
but whenever she came over here i had to sleep downstairs.
in conclusion: depends on the parents.
i'd say. 14+ fine. Im a great dad.
Why doesn't he just move out? Sorry.
of an ex of mine, his mum is catholic. brother=29/30, has a long term girlfriend who he lives with etc... at a family do recently, their mum booked the hotel room and booked a twin room for the two brothers and a single room for his girlfriend. like, what??
has nothing to do with it.
I wouldn't expect it. Even if they're quite progressive it's also a bit strange to be in that situation in their house, if that makes sense?
I guess it's nice if they are happy with it but I wouldn't feel like they were being big losers if they said no...
Here's a free tip - It will endear yourself to your girlfriends parents if you have really loud sex. Failing that, masturbating really loudly will have a similar positive impact
should stop pretending like things ain't happening. if you've been together for a decent amount of time, say year+, there shouldn't be a problem. it's a bit weird at first mind, probably because they realise their kid's growing up :)
that her parents fancy a shag tonight and are either a)feeling magnanimous or b)planning to do it within in earshot of where you might otherwise be sleeping
or perhaps it's your birthday present?
OR maybe she's been such a pain in the arse bitch that they've decided she needs a good seeing to to mellow her out
so why are you on the internet?
it all gets better then :)
was what i meant.
In their house, it's a bit weird. I just didnt think most parents were happy with it.
Spoils the tradition of having to sneak to her room, in the middle of the night. Or of you both staying up later than them, and then you having to go downstairs at 6 in the morning to pretend you'd been sleeping on the couch all along.
Whereas my mum just randomly said to me "no having sex in this house".
that i'm not a virgin. or indeed that i even know what sex is.
their a bit weird about it
i'd imagine for parents, thinking about their kids having sex. is like thinking about your parents having sex.
but if you've left home and you have a serious partner, wouldn't it be hypocritical for your parents to make you sleep separately? Most parents know their kids have sex, surely? Then they can start getting excited about grandchildren and stuff.
this has come out of a conversation i was having with 17 year old tristram though.
wants me and cat to marry and start spawning as soon as possible
dangerously small and light :(
and probably so pale they'd be seethru :(
my gf's parents were okay with it and they're catholics. just don't be loud. i guess you might feel weird about doing anything if their room is next door or something.
my mum didn't mind my ex sleeping in my bed when he stayed here. but that was in the old house. i am never having anyone over here because my room is RIGHT next door to my mum's and that would just be wrong :(
The complete opposite end of a quite long house from my parents. Wahey!
and the double bed.
= floor beds :)
although, how would you get sheets to fit?
actually what i really want is a twister duvet cover.
2 have allowed it.
wouldn't say its unusual in these times however but i guess as others have said it depends on the parents. and how they view you, actually.
it probably means they like you ;)
and not sleep in the same room either.
Why do people bring this kind of personal strife to a public message board?
I appreciate that there's a lot of friends on here, but if I'm not mistaken your girlfriend also frequents the boards and if I were her and to see you going on about winning an argument in a public forum, I'd be a little upset.
Things Colin dislikes about the internet #3245234: People taking their problems to people they've never met.
i've read it differently to how you've interpreted and i don't think that's what has happened.
1/ sometimes it's just nice to rant into a big, impersonal void and get feedback about problems from people not involved in them.
2/ i've seen you do exactly that in the past to some degree :P
Well I didn't get the impression it was with her.
I've seen far worse on forums from couples.
can't see the problem
i was more just curious because i was having a discussion with someone else. also, i wasn't really talking about my own personal experiences with such things.
besides, if people don't discuss their real lives on message boards ummm what exactly DO they discuss....?
anyway, there was no strife whatsoever and it really had nowt to do with me...
...and it wasn't about personal strifes, it was just a discussion. he didn't go on about winning an argument, i think he mentioned it, like, once. i thought it was fairly interesting personally.
dot to dot with? i think she was pretty. but i was very tired and not paying great amounts of attention.
but the girl i was at dot to dot with was pretty_vacant off of these message boards
i am right.
"You're not sharing a bad, he can sleep on the sofa"
I said "Mum, what do you think happens when he stays at my house in London?"
on a mostly unrelated note, does it freak anyone else out when people are open with their parents about sex?
i mean, i'm sure my mother isn't stupid or anything... but i still don't talk about it.
My best mate's mum showed me what a condom was when I was bout 9 or 10. I can't remember the reason for it coming up in conversation. She was a biologist by trade so didn't really hold with prudishness.
Not that my mum would have been particularly shocked by idea of me being told such stuff, either.
are around = hilarious.
Shared houses = even funnier.
Using rubbish excuses, like, "oh, I think I left my phone in my room... do you want to come and help me find it?"
And then re-appearing some time later looking a bit scruffy.
and make posts such as "i can hear noise from upstairs. i'm just going to assume it's a giant rocking chair."
but yeah... I remember having a boyfriend at 19 with an incredibly catholic mother and sneaking from room to room in the mornings was a total bitch. Ah, the good old days.
let my girlfriends share my bed with me when I still lived at home. It's like...well, I don't really see why it would be a problem. Personally.
But then me and me mam are kinda open
but it was different standards with me. Fucking hypocritical parents
They didn't want your piercing screams interrupting their sleep.
there has been no arguing or strife, just the mild disapproval of my father. innit
mine weren't , Catholics y'see. Despite my well when I stay at his we share a room..my Mum = 'NOT UNDER MY ROOF'
Shortly after she paid for us to go on holiday together which marked her giving in
my girlfriend first came round to stay my mum said to HER "Are you going to sleep downstairs?"
I let fly with a few minutes of verbal abuse and she just said
"I didn't realise things had progressed that far".
The worst part of that story was at that point I still had bunk beds
who went on top?
no one likes bottom?
could almost have been the two of us on saturday night (or so it seemed the next morning)
and it is a hate crime to say it is wrong to like the bottom bunk.
I like bottom.
I like it a lot.
You're talking about bunk beds, aren't you?
*abandon sleeping arrangements*
I have a fear of heights.
I'm so manly.
you've fallen out once there is no fear anymore
top bunk is definitely the best. you can't sit up in the bottom one!
you can throw stuff onto the person below you and just generally annoy them. Although if youre on the bottom you can sneak your hand up the side of the bed and scare the person on the top bunk.
Just me then?
i forgot about the fun you can have kicking the top bunk if you're on the bottom one. hmmmm, dilemma
You don't get woken up if the person on the bottom bunk gets up in the night but you're likely to wake up if you're in the bottom bunk and the person in the top bunk gets up.
Try not to be on the top bunk though when two people are having sex on the bottom bunk (not sure if they'd asked their parents either).
it's worse to be on the bottom bunk if two people are having sex on the top bunk?
but I would imagine it would be worse.
