Too bad, Mike.

On the other hand, my wife of 32 years just shakes her head at my naievty. There have been a couple of times when she has pointed out that women were hitting on me. (she happened to be in earshot.)

She says she doesn't worry about me when I'm away as not too many women are as direct as she is.

Good luck.

Les

Let's not forget the corollary to 'In my long lived successful marriage I learned one thing, STFU about everything', which is to not have anything that you need to STFU about in this long and successful marriage.

Here's a weird tale my wife told me the other night. Neighbors (H&W) down the street had a party. Other neighbors (H&W) from the other end of the street visit the party. Husband host hugs wife guest as a hello. (He's a friendly guy). Husband guest gets mad about this and punches a hole in the Host's wall. H&W guests stay for the rest of the party...Husband Guest was one of the last to leave! (must have had a better? time). I don't understand people. At all. Ever.

Better to have a wife that's pissed off for a few days than one that's pissed off for life and ends up getting 1/2 of your stuff and leaving you with 1/2 of what's left after the lawyers get done.

Ask her if guys ever flirt with her. And does she run to tell you about it?

Bunch o years back we did BMX XXX.

We licensed Scores as a venue in the game.

As you earned money in the game you could go to Scores for a strip show. The in game stripping was live footage, not computer modeled.

Spent a few days there filming the girls.

Fast forward to the launch party and natch we have it at Scores.

One of the girls latches onto me for the evening. Odd thing is she looks just like my wife to the point that numerous people including our CEO came over and said hello to her addressing her as my wife.

So the dilemma I faced as I drove home was do I tell my wife, "hey honey you are definitely hot, a bunch of people at the party thought the stripper I was hanging with was you".

To which she would have responded, " wtf are you doing hanging out with a stripper so much that people think it's me?"

I did tell her the next day and she laughed.

You could of also just went with it (the hit that is) and cried victim of sexual abuse. You'd get sex, money, power and maybe you wife would understand too - maybe not.

Jack Nicholson plays an old, conservative, curmudgeon romance book writer in as good as it gets (ok movie - jacks good). When approached by an adoring fan who gushes, "How do you know women so well???" He replies something like, "First I think of a man, then I take away reason and accountability.

NO! Do NOT ask her that.

Here is a phrase that will make any marriage more peaceful.

"You were right, I was wrong."

This applies to any situation, regardless of circumstances(like in the event she is wrong)

Repeat as needed

In my experience, the only time you get through your wife finding out about you getting hit on unscathed is when she witnessed the actual act.

That said, I probably would have done exactly what you did, Mike. I also probably would have added: "If you're so mad at me for turning her down, should I have said yes?"

Not that I recommend that...

It doesn't make any sense that a woman would be mad at you for something beyond your control. There was nothing you could have done to prevent being propositioned.

Then again, women only make sense to themselves.

Tell your wife if she doesn't pull herself together you are going to change your mind and start "ghostwriting" for the CEO again.

What ever happened to taking one for the team?

Actually in the past when I have had "overly" friendly females around - my wife will ask - "did you sleep with her"

my response has always been - of course not honey - and you would know because she would be dropping by to see me, calling me all the time, couldn't get enough of Mr. Johnson - just like you were......

So I'm not the only one?

Ex-GF would get mad at me if I left because I had to get up early for work and would get mad at me if I stayed and lost sleep.
