Just wondering

Do you prefer being outdoors or indoors?

What would you do if a close friend started saying mean things about you?

What is your idea of a perfect Saturday night?

It depends on the weather. I love eating outdoors but only in optimal weather. Generally, I like to split my time between inside and outside.

It's happened a couple of times and once you get over the shock and sadness, sometimes you just have to let them go. Why hold on to people like that?

Pizza, beer and a movie.

Exactly. It's hard when folk you trust start badmouthing you. it wasn't me but TBG that my former best friend started badmouthing. That didn't fly with me. For some reason, I got the feeling she expected me to pick her over him. I didn't.

It depends on what I want to do, and what it's like outside whether I prefer being inside or outside. I found out during this Pandemic that I really DON'T mind being stuck inside. I can easily entertain myself inside. My homes are comfortable and pleasant. Yet - I enjoy the outside. In Maine, unless raining, I'm rarely in the cabins, mostly on the dock. Photography is best outside. When it's raining, I love being inside and cozy and listening to the rain on the roof. (especially in Maine. But, in Maine if it rains more than 2 days in a row, I become a caged lion! I don't entertain myself in the cabins well!) EDIT: If it's snowing, I love to be out walking in it. But, I can just as easily enjoy it from the window.

If a close friend were to say mean things about me, I think my first instinct would be to want to cry, and wonder how much truth there was to whatever they were saying. That reaction is based on my general lack of good feelings about myself, and that this friend -- because they are (or profess to be) close to me -- might be seeing something negative in me that I don't see in myself. However, if it were to continue, I would hope I'd get a handle that it might be mean-spirited, especially if it's spread to others in a gossipy way.

Perfect Saturday Night: leisurely drinks and dinner out with friends. Good conversation. Lots of laughs.
It's one of those, It's better to be inside wishing you were out than outside wishing you were in. :DD

*hugs* I'm sorry. They aren't worth it, really.

Nice sounding evening to me, too. :D
Tough question, I couldn’t do (or enjoy) with one without the other. But because I don’t like being cold, I would need to be inside instead of outside if that had to be the determining factor.

I was able to ignore a misunderstanding for 3 years in hopes it would pass. Counting on how a separation wouldn’t be worth the another person's grudge. And certainly being one that wasn’t based on facts. Then I realized it wasn’t going to matter. So I spent 2 years writing a letter of apology and compliments. Not because I didn’t know how to write. But because I did, and it was the effort to make every single word count. About how I admired the person, as well as admitting my own insufficiencies. The result was doing that didn’t matter either. Which said enough about the other person to excuse me of being at fault. I mean how many people make that much effort to reach out, and then are left hanging. In the end people have to live with themselves. And essentially, within themselves too.

Oh goodness, there’s no such thing as a perfect anything. But a good Saturday night would have just the right TV shows (or recordings) being run. Pizza or a baked potato for dinner. Ice Cream for desert. And a good cocktail. It would be fun to share the evening with someone of common interest, but unlikely. But that would really make it perfect I guess.
It's better to be in wishing you were out than out wishing you were in (we used to say that about ballooning, too).

I've only had it happen once. It was enough. Now I have friend whom I can trust.

I'm sorry you feel that way. I think a lovely meal put together with the help of friends, laughter, and conversation are pretty much perfect in my world.
Inside mostly. But today the weather was very nice and i did yoga in my backyard and that was fun. I do like nature.

I would talk to them about it cause wtf

Idk i have to work every saturday 3pm-11pm lol
If it were some exciting party going on that night i would like to leave work early so i could get ready and get to the party before its very late. No cooking.
Thankfully, those days are behind me.

I must be old because I love to get together with friends AND cook on Saturday night. I remember having to work weekend.

1. Outdoors as long as it's 20C or above.

2. Be hurt.

3. My guy, Greek takeaway and a bottle of rosé plus a great horror movie.
Most excellent! I don't mind it being hot, as long as I have some shade when necessary! :DD

Sounds like an excellent plan to me as well.
I'm a homebody. :)

Well, they wouldn't be close friends any more. :o

Pizza, Dessert, and a fun movie. :)
Hugs, Jon
They wouldn't be in my world, either. *hugs*

I liek the sound of your Sat. nights
1. Mostly indoors

2. I'm usually not good with confrontation, so I would pull away from said person for awhile until I could confront them in person about why they're being cruel.

3. A good meal, followed by a good dessert and maybe watch a good show or movie .
Never underestimate the loveliness of a/c — that's my philosophy! :DD

Well played. Confronting someone in public is never a good idea.

Mmm, that sounds lovely!

I'd write them off as not actually a true friend. I'd probably dwell on it for a bit and wonder how things could go so wrong. I would also even ask them why they are doing it but I would never consider them a friend again and eventually, I would just move past it.

Perfect Saturday night. Hmmm...these days just being home, eating great food, having the kids get along perfect. The house would be cleaned already so no clutter stress and we could all just relax and maybe even play some board games together
You sort of strike me as an indoor girl — me, too, for the most part.

That was me and my former ex best friend. It was sad, but it was her loss.

Mmm, you had me 'at the house would be cleaned' :DD

Indoors or outdoors. I'm pretty happy indoors. If the weather cooperates I like going out for awhile, but then I just want to be home.

If a close friend started saying mean things, I can't help but think I'd back away. I'm not good with confrontations. If I really thought of them as a close friend, I would be incredibly hurt, but I'm still not sure I'd want to confront.

Being home. Something good to eat, whatever sounds good at the time. Probably a movie, either a new one I've been looking forward to seeing or a movie I've seen before and really enjoy.
I've never been one for submerging myself in Nature. I prefer comfy chairs and a/c for the most part (especially these days). I will sit out with TBG for a bit, but that's enough.

Same here, although I would have confronted as a younger person.

Mmm, that sounds lovely.
depends on the setting really for me

I'd want to know why

and again that depends on the company
The older I get, the more it seems to depend upon whom I'm with.

Outdoors on the deck at camp, or out under the awning at the coast in Maine, watching the water, or at a festival. At home, inside unless it is nice out, the under the tarp for shade. Usually any of those include some form of hand work. Knitting, crochet, embroidery.
Confront the person, ask what is going on. If there is not a satisfactory answer, the trust is broken. I would walk away. No need for more drama.
Watching my BBC mysteries: Midsommer Murders, Shakespeare and Hathaway, and Vera.
Ooo, that sounds lovely — I can do nature as long as there's shade.

I would have been more likely to confront then than now. It doesn't seem worth the effort these days.

Sounds like our Saturday nights, too.

Do you prefer being outdoors or indoors? It depends on the weather.

What would you do if a close friend started saying mean things about you? I would wonder why they were doing it, probably be hurt and then tell them off.

What is your idea of a perfect Saturday night? Good food and a relaxing evening in.

I much prefer having shade these days.

Good woman,

Even now with having had so many nights is, I would agree.
It depends on the weather, but if it's too hot or too cold, I'd rather be inside.

They wouldn't be my friend anymore

A good meal and watching anime

Saturday night and anime just seem to go together! :DD
I must be tired or something. I read the first question as "do you prefer peeing outdoors or indoors? The Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbes) in me thought, "you mean I have a choice?"
I had to go back and read, just to be sure I didn't write that. :DDDD
