To ask my partner?

Hope this doesn't sound too strange to post but I'm just not sure of my judgement on this one
A guy I know socially has asked me for a game of badminton as he found out that I play . It would be during the day - I am off 2 days a week and one of those days/ times suit him best
Question is - do I ask my partner if I can do that in case he doesn't feel comfortable with me meeting up with another guy ,even though it's only for a game of badminton
He is not a jealous type at all but I'm also thinking if the shoe was on the other foot, I'd probably rather know
Sorry if it sounds crazy to post this , but I just can't think straight

You don't need to ask him but I do think you should tell him, otherwise you are deliberately hiding it and when he finds out, it will look suspicious.

I'm not sure I'd ask his permission but I would let him know, as you say you'd rather know and I always think it looks more suspicious if it's never mentioned than if you're open about it.

Yeah I wouldn't be asking but I'd be letting him know see what he says sort of thing. I wouldn't be asking as such

Asking is odd, but mentioning you have badminton with [name] today and probably will do x/y/z too.
If you feel it's a bit off are you sure he's not seeing this as a date? Or do you not have male friends?

Just tell him X has asked you to play and that you are going. Don't ask permission


Shoxfordian · 28/06/2017 09:59

No you don't need to ask permission or make a point of telling him

Mention it if asked but this isn't a big deal
