Addicted to his mates


Michael, 34, accountant

‘It’s not like we’re attached at the hip, I can enjoy a little time with my mates and shouldn’t have to feel guilty about it!

I know it might seem a bit full-on sometimes but that’s just because we’ve known each other for so long and we’re real lads’ lads- I mean they’re practically my family.

She might have a point though when she says that our house is a bit more like our local than love-nest, I do spend most of my time with them but most of the time she’s there having a laugh with us too.

I enjoy a good beer with my friends and if it turns out that they come back for a cheeky Fifa tournament or to watch the game then so be it.

I admit that do go out with the guys a lot and there is the occasional late night stumble home maybe once or twice a week, but it’s not as if we’re together all the time, we all have our own lives but we’re a close group that’s how it’s always been.

It is true that when I take Jennifer away on a romantic weekend that I’ve called one or two of my mates just so see what’s been going on without me- but I don’t see the problem, she likes to know the gossip as much as I do...I think.

Problems started a few months ago when she started getting on my back about how I don’t pay her enough attention- saying that things can’t carry on like this if we’re going to start a family.

I know she’s got big plans to turn me into the perfect family man but I’ve always thought that you don’t have to sacrifice friendships for a family- its all about balance.

I don’t think I’m ready for that kind of commitment but I don’t think she understands. She’s changing a lot and I’m not sure that I like it.'
