An Evening with M (And His Wife)

Last night, we went to one of Rebecca's more "creepy" (her words) admirers for dinner with him and his wife. This guy is the one who came on very strong to Rebecca on a recent work trip.

She has zero attraction for him, but she said she feels bad for him because they just recently moved to our city and don't know anyone, so we accepted their invitation for dinner.
I figured they might be swingers, so we had a plan to bail in the event they tried to divide and conquer us.

We arrived and were met at the door by his wife. She looked to be the "better half". She was blond, relatively attractive, and ten years his junior. Rebecca and I weren't sure what to expect, but we actually had a good time.

Rebecca had told them about our current favorite cocktail, the whiskey sour, so they had prepared all the required ingredients. Our introduction to that drink came through G, another of Rebecca's admirers, so there were several layers of complexity in the evening already.

We enjoyed a great meal, and pretty good conversation considering we were dining with a man who made a blatant and somewhat repulsive pass at Rebecca a mere two weeks previous. Add to the mix his wife who seems blissfully unaware of her husband's shortcomings, the fact that I am completely aware of his lust for my wife, while keeping in mind he has no idea that I know as much as I do.

It's all very complicated, like some bad soap opera. Fortunately, I'm fine with situations like this as long as I'm one of the people in the room "in the know".

I did consider saying something to him, but at this point Rebecca seems to be able to handle him quite easily and to be honest, it's quite entertaining. We've been invited out with them again next weekend, so this hasn't finished yet.
