I have alot of different opinions on this.
1) i dont really care if my boyfriend wants to go, i guess i wouldnt really like it all that much, but hey, if he wants to cheat, then hes going to no matter what. and if he wants to oogle at the girls.. then fine, he can have them and when he comes home his bags will be packed. but.. im lucky, my boyfriend told me he wont ever go there out of respect for me.
2) Jessica is wrong, people go to football games to watch football..not the cheerleaders.. guys go to hooters.. well simple, to look at the girls.. the food is shittt so obviously thats not why they go there.
3) just be independent, tell him he can do whatever he wants but if he crosses the line.. as in cheating or getting phone numbers he will be out the door. I tell my boyfriend he can go to the strippers if he wants.. like i said, i wouldnt really like it, but i encourage him to go have fun with the boys, he knows his limits and i trust him, i cant tell him not to do things he wants to do because eventually one day he would leave me if i was controlling, i let him make his own decisions.
As long as he is not going there all the time, or crossing the line, then its fine with me, but once the line has been crossed, then its over.
