Would you go?

DH is in town at the pub with four work mates. All men. I kind of want to go out because I've been confining myself to the house recently and the alternative is an evening alone but I don't know the work mates very well and they're all men. Would you go?

No right answer here. If you would like to then yes of course.
Why are you confined to the house?
Do you want to go? then go.
Not my thing drinking beer with a bunch of men ( would have been years ago perhaps), but my view is not important.
Do you have your own activities/friends/interests that you enjoy?
My idea of self nurture is a 7am yoga class, but I know that is not for everyone!

the fact they are all men is completely irrelevant to me. They are just people.
It's the fact that they are all work mates that would bother me, feels too much like gatecrashing. I would find it rather weird if any of my colleagues' partner suddenly decided to turn up when we are out for a drink.

I went. It was okay. Normally a couple of the girlfriends/wives go but they were at home with their babies tonight.
It did feel a bit like I was gatecrashing, lots of work chat and also some derogatory comments towards me as I was the only woman.

We don’t go out with them much anymore but I was always the only girl on my nights out with dp, I think I’m considered “one of the lads” I love it. Never have been one for female company (not that I don’t crave it!) I love a night out with the boys and am often the one cracking jokes and laughing my dp under the table 😂 if he don’t mind you being there why not??
