    ...then make a spectacle of themselves later in the evening when your wife is there, coming up to the stage and frantically waving goodbye to you. And you try to pretend you don't see them. Last night. Respectable joint, innocent conversation, or at least I thought.

    No, misunderstanding. They didn't know her. But if she was paying attention she sure saw them trying to get my attention!

    In this situation, all that runs through my head is the jingle from that old Caterpillar safety film...

    Women don’t want a man other women don’t want.
    Women have pride in ownership, and they play their own games.

    You should have immediately introduced her to your Wife.
    And say "We were talking earlier.You two should get acquainted.You have so much in common."
    Then the other woman will be prompted to either become your Wife's friend or she'll get lost.

    That way your Wife see's that you are "on the up and up".
    And you would have dodged a bullet.

    My wife knows that the bands I play with always take time to talk to and be friendly with everyone at the venues we work. Male or female, everyone gets treated with respect. If your wife gets bent by you talking to a female or waving bye at the show, then that may be worth discussing. It’s just part of the show, after all.
  18. There's another scenario that could've came from introducing them... :D

    I haven't had too much along these lines, but like @punchdrunk said, I usually feel free to chat up people in the crowd during the breaks and be friendly. I've had once or twice women would be a little too warm and touchy and I just try to courteously disentangle. If they're waving and attracting attention, I'll wave back. But there's no question who I'm going home with.

    My S.O. never comes to gigs, so it's not an issue. And wouldn't be one anyway. I am not too sexy for my shirt.:roflmao:
