Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So basic tale, One of my wife's best friends, who I don't care for, she's not a bad person just her morals and viewpoint don't mix, asked her to House sit and look after her dogs while she is in Ottawa.
My wife agrees but she knows how uncomfortable staying in another persons home is for me, she loves it, it's like a vacation for her but she resents me staying at our place.
Now if this was any of our other friends, no issue, but this friend, disapproves of me, due to the fact that when she and my wife met, I was unemployed due to my work visa running out and the only way to get one was to get an employer to agree to hire me and wait for approval (a process which could take up to 3 months!).
To make matters worse her husband has a traditional view of the releationship dynamic, man should look after woman, pay bills etc, so he's never accepted me and she is only kinda awkwardly ok with me.
Now while this is not to big of a deal, I'd like your opinions on how I could deal with becoming comfortable with this friendship, as it would mean a lot to my wife and I have no idea how I could do this.
