Due to the nature of this story, I am going to change some details to protect the other party. G and I had met a particular couple at a party that we really liked a lot. They were funny and we got along really well. Yes, they were an attractive couple. They held very high-powered jobs in their community. When Mr. X stopped by the store to invite G and I out to dinner, we couldn’t see any reason to say no.
Nothing unusual happened at our first dinner. Mr. and Mrs. X were charming, funny and full of stories. Pretty much status quo when we meet friends for dinner. Nothing out of the ordinary at our second dinner either. Looks like we had found new friends.
At our third dinner out, that’s when IT happened. IT being what I came to refer to as The Big Proposition. During dinner, Mr. X informed us that Mrs. X found G really attractive and that he was equally as interested in me. What the what??? They weren’t “swinger’s” in the traditional sense. Mr. X would only let men look at his wife. They preferred “relationships” with the couples they swapped with. What the what??? How the hell did this happen? Damn! And we really liked these people, too.
They were very gracious in giving us the opportunity to go home to discuss the possibility and would call soon. As if G and I had anything to discuss. The answer has always been No. Always will be No. I would like to say that we were disappointed that we would not see them again. Could not see them again. We weren’t. Like I have said before, G and I love each other very much and are committed to each other.
It was early experiences like this that has led us to be very careful about who we are friends with. What started out as dinner with people we would like to know better, turned into a dead-end.
What would you do if you and your partner were propositioned?
