After eight glorious years of marriage, I have finally learned something about my dear husband, the wonderful Erik.
He does not like to be set up on blind dates with other husbands.
You know. When you and another girl get on so well that you think, well, of course, we should double date. Of course, since me and girlfriend get along, husbands will quickly hit it off too. They are bound to become boosom buddies, fantasy football pals, confidants, accountability partners. (Okay, maybe the last two are a stretch...)
In any case, I make friends just a smidge faster than the wonderful Erik. He's friendly, just more reserved initially. So, recently I have approached him about making a new couple-aquaintance. He's basically asked me to interview the husband through the girlfriend a couple more times before going out on a double. I think that's a pretty good idea. I'm pretty sure he's put up with plenty of awkward moments for my sake. The least I can do is try to make sure there will be a love connection when we do finally get the husbands together.
