If your relationship is based on mutual trust and respect, it shouldn't be an issue.
Just wondering how your man feels about you riding with another dude......
this subject is so touchy with mine......I have never ridden with any other men w/o him....so Im curious to see how this next summer is going to be, already i have made alot of friends who ride but they are all men, there are hardly any riders that are women in washington it seems so when a friend asks me to come ride with him I wonder how thats gonna fly...especially because he is not a big "group rider"....:confused
:shrug If he can't handle you riding with other guy friends I'd run away now! Not walk RUN. If there is no trust there isn't a relationship. Unless you have a bad track record with him or given him reason to doubt you then he shouldn't have issues over it
I can really see both sides... yes I think he should trust you, it's a male-dominated sport - mostly likely you are going to be riding with males. However if the role was reversed and my SO was hanging out with all chicks, I wouldn't be all that happy about it. If he rides also, I don't see any reason why you won't be riding together.Shay said:
I'm probably going to come off as being on the side of your SO here, but I've been on the other side of this.
One of my X's hung out and had girl "ridding buddies" and I thought it was all a bunch of B.S.
I heard the whole "If you love me you'll trust me" crap, and that's all it is, is crap.
He was the kind of guy that girls would migrate to and flirt with, didn't matter if they knew about me or not, even the couple of times that I was around, his body language was different.
I think it goes beyond the trusting thing, it's also about common courtesy, I never felt he had any business hanging out with his "girl buddies" any more than he would've liked me haning out with some guy buds.
It got old real quick when he'd say "Sorry, but I already made plans to go ridding with Beth and Carrol..."
Our group started because one of the original gal's SO... absolutely under NO circumstances can she ride with men, thus the "no men allowed" rule started. It has worked out to be a novelty that we are an all women group, but that's the reason for it... not that we were trying to be "special". :shrugmsstang808 said:
I normally would ride with my guy friends anyhow if I wasn't riding with the ladies of Dangerous Curves.
thanks for all the feedback guys....
Shay: He is more important to me than anything but its always nice to have a group of people to ride with plus i was hoping to find a cool group that didnt act like fools for us to ride with ...Im not trying to ride with men and not women Im saying there is not many women in the state who ride and so far I know of only 3 counting the 2 that just wrote to me in this thread...and I will ride with them no doubt but Im not gonna sit and here and not make friends or look for other people to ride with....besides im looking for people WE could ride with not just me when I talk to other sportbiker people in my area Im just saying if there is ever a day when he is doing his own thing and some of my guyfriends might want to head out on a ride....I want to be sure he isnt going to bug out on me.......Im not more excited about riding with the opposite sex Im more excited about riding with other women honestly....I wish there were a ton of women sportbike riders out here then I woudlnt have even started this thread to begin with....Im fully comfortable with my SO being around my guy friends or any friends for that matter but Im not comfortable with riding with other men if I know he isnt cool with it hence the start of this thread.....if I wanted to just go out and ride with whomever whether they hit on me or not for whatever reason be it Im a slut by nature or just want attention then I would and woudlnt worry about what he thinks and I would never have started this discussion.
