I will be attending my 40th Buffett show this year. I never usually take a date. I was married 15 years and only took my wife to two shows due to it being mainly a guys night out event.
I never "fouled around" during those shows without her. With all the shows I have been to, I have always seen couples after a few drinks get into arguments which prompted me not to take a date. I have been single for 8 years and had not taken my girlfriend who I dated for about 6 years.
I have dated my current girlfriend for 17 months and today I asked her to go. I thought she would be thrilled. Instead of being positive, she said, "are you going to be staring at girls the entire time?" She can be jealous at times. My feeling is, if she is going to have a bad attitude going with me, I might as well have her mad and I should just go by myself and not having to worry about her ruining my night. I have never flirted with any lady while with or without her during our relationship so she has no reason to be concerned about me in my opinion. My initial mistake was telling her some story's of tailgating and there being wet t-shirt contests without the t-shirts etc.
I am not going to ruin my 30 year tradition.
What can I say to her to have a better attitude? We do both love each other. She is 52 years young (and hot) and I am 51.
She should not be so insecure! I have told her that if she went out with the girls, I would just hold my breath and let her go as I trust her.
Thanks in advance.

I told her today that it is just going to be a guys night out since no other wives are going etc. She said she is going out on the town then since I am. I told her she should but I would be disappointed if she did anything foolish. It is amazing that we are a great couple otherwise. If she wants to break up over this, she must not be the girl for me. I cannot let it worry me. Just go with the flow.

I had a great time in Cincinnati not having to stress out over my girlfriend acting up. Yeah, it will take a couple of days (or weeks) for her to get over this but it should be fine.
