I'm kind of staggered you were down for the whole marriage thing - you seem the sort to rally against every bit of it with every fibre of your being. :lol:


I'm even more amazed that someone would commit to spending their life with me :lol:

I was best man for one of my mates 12 years ago, and he forgot to mention his new wife in his groom's speech :slol:

Same. Practiced enough so I learnt it off by heart and didn't need my notes, was great fun doing it.

I wrote my groom speech the night before the wedding and then did it without even needing my notes. Got lots of good comments afterwards saying how good it was too 8-)

I'd absolutely dread doing a best man speech though and I hope I'm never put in that position.

Groom speech is the one thing I'm truly dreading. Hate public speaking. Hate being the centre of attention.

That's if the wedding goes ahead of course. Nearly 2 months away and we have zero idea if we're still ok to go ahead.

I lost my place and went off script a few times (was using prompts which is put down to make sure I was looking at people around the room), and at one point I lost my place on my prompts page, it went quiet, it felt awkward and I started shaking and decided that was a perfectly appropriate time to make a Parkinson's joke :dread:

Surely you don't have to do it if you don't want to? It's your wedding

Yeah i didn't do any of that, no first dance either. We also specified no presents from anyone. I was best man for my mates wedding and did the speech no problem, i just don't like being the centre of attention and feel like its overly self indulgent. Luckily my wife is great and was supporting the idea before i even said anything.

My dad did that. He's not married now. :slol:

My brother's best man speech at my wedding was strong. Knowing that my wife is big into star signs and that she's a Taurus he named some famous people she shared the sign with - Adolf Hitler, Oliver Cromwell, Saddam Hussein...

It's your wedding, you don't have to do anything you don't want to.

The main point of the grooms speech is to thank people. Thank them in private individually instead.

I was best man for my brothers wedding but told him I wasn't doing a speech. :lol:

I eloped to Vegas so didn't have to do a groom's speech.

Basically I am not ever doing a speech.

The best was when he said your mum delivered a bike and she's not walked the same since.

I was a big fan of how he silenced your Dad. Beautiful comic timing, but a sting behind it.

This is a little embarrassing to post as I feel being a man welll.. :oops:

My gf hasn't really talked to me now for 24 hours just done what she always does when in a huff, acted in a huff. Last night when I came in from work I was beat, lond sweating and just wanted to eat, chill sleep. She was already (which she denies) a bit drunk at this point from visiting her parents, and she's quite often wandering around in the nip at home. I knew she wanted sex but I was absolutely wiped out. And when she's had a bit to drink she can go 1 of two ways, and she was going down the being a dickhead route through her conversation.

So she started giving me shade because I wouldn't just sit in the nip while eating my food. It's such a stupid thing i know honestly I'm ashamed writing it. So then she went in a huff 'dunno why I bother' and even further in a huff when I asked if she wanted to go to bed. Which she did, because for some reason she can't stay up by herself. She tossed and turned, huffed and puff (like the blow your house down.) and got up, eventually getting back into bed later on calling me a dick and going to sleep. Woke up, she's getting ready for work still huffy/barely speaking. I've text her a few times about some stuff while at work and just getting one-word replies.

I dunno, I'm a bit sick, it's quite a consistent thing (going in a huff), and i know she's upset but i'm not kidding to say I felt disgusting last night and just wanted to sleep.. :|. I hate this too because in these situations I'm then constantly walking around on egg shells not to upset her further..

broom her

in all seriousness tell her how you feel and see how she reacts. also ask her how she feels as well. it sounds simple but it isnt but you need to communicate how you feel and listen to how she feels, because her actions are coming from feelings and you need to know why/what shes feeling, not go off how those feelings are making her act.

feelings

good luck

That's unacceptable behaviour on her part. Like face says, ask her what's up.
