"That's a bit simplistic, Rick. Yes, while the more people you meet, the more chance you'll find a guy who can or will be great friends, just being "social" doesn't mean you're friends with someone. See other posts in…"
"Hey, I know how you feel, man.
I think talking to other guys, especially those we consider our friends, how much they mean to us is something that we're scared of doing, for all the reasons that other people have said. But I think it's…"
"Agree with all the replies above. It's not a right or wrong issue. It's very nice of you but not necessary. However, you'll definitely score points with the girl. She'll definitely appreciate his fiance having thoughtful friends…"
"I agree with you. If an event must be called off because of an un-expected circumstances it is up to the person who's been affected by those un-expected circumstances.
