    Avoiding conflicts with my wife....

    I had to pass this on...This has been an on going "sore point" in our relationship. I want to spend my free time biking and my wife bikes with me sometimes but she can take it or leave it. I've been talking to a lot of people out there who at some point in their lives had a relationship stressed by their passion for their hobby. My brother in law told me about this website, and since I started using it she is so much happier, and I get to go ride with no guilt trips laid on me. www.mrthoughtful.com So worth it!

    He posted this exact message in the Mountain Bike sub-forum. Smells like SPAM.

    You know how pi$$ed my wife would be if I blew 75 bucks on something like that? I can guarantee you that she would have said something like this, “You wasted SEVENTY FIVE DOLLARS on that? You know how many biking accessories you could have gotten with that kind of money?”

    LOL

    I think you would be better off buying flowers once a month with the 75 bucks.

    True. But a guy who has to pay someone to help him remember his partner's birthday, who can't think of a single romantic idea on his own, and who thinks spending time with his partner is a chore unless they're doing what he wants to do has issues larger than those flowers can fix.
