Hopefully with your girlfriend as well? Otherwise, awkward potential is sky high.

WITH the girl.


Awkward part is staying in rooms opposite each other, and sharing a bathroom.

I also play racquetball, where blue balls are common. This is a random fact, not to be read into too deeply.

I'm sure you two can ditch her parents for an evening walk along a secluded cove.

Opposite rooms from the girl? Or from the parents? I've heard it can be fun to play racquetball in the shower.

Opposite the girl, parents down the hall.


No shenanigans, she's a good Catholic girl.

Then what's the point? Is the family rich or something?

Haha, my wife and I had traveled a lot with her ultra-conservative family one summer. Separate everything. We found more opportunities to get it on more during those trips than we did when we were home without her family around.

LOL....had a similar experience with girlfriend about 8 or so years ago. Was staying at her sister/brother-n-law's house. Not that they were conservative, but the house was small and we didn't want to be heard. The things we did to get it going without making noise...or masking the noise for that week....it was almost a game. Because of the "adventure" we probably did it twice as much as normal too.

Yep, yep, same exact thing when we stayed with some friends of my wife's, except it was a loft so, never mind...

Imagine that for two weeks, but you don't get to snog any of them, and you're close.



Her mom introduced me as the fiance today. I had a heart attack. I don't even have a ring.

You better tell her to give you a ring posthaste! Remind her that there are plenty of fish in the sea. Throw in the 'Cod Wars' between Iceland and the UK. At the very least, this will confuse them for a bit.

LOL. My parents always gave me and the guy a room together. Since we were already sleeping together at home, why should they make up 2 beds?

My sister-in-law (not in-law at the time) got knocked up under my parents' roof. (LOL). It really pissed me off, since my first boyfriend wasn't allowed in the house at all for a while.
