Hello all: After getting into this debate with a friend a few times, I'd like to know what you guys think about dropping by your boyfriend's house without calling ahead of time. One of my guy friends claims that it's extremely rude to stop by unnannouced and that his girlfriend of 6 years knows the rule (she is NEVER allowed to make surprise visits). His behavior is sooo incredibly fishy to me, especially considering the length of time that they've been together. I can't help but thinking that he has something to hide. I also ran into this problem with a boyfriend once (the only time I stopped by in a 2 year relationship without letting him know first). I am from the school of thought that it's generally okay to stop by a boyfriend's house without calling first although it's very RARE that I would do that. While I wouldn''t want to throw off his schedule or monopolze his time by doing it, I just feel like someone that you're in a serious relationship with should feel comfortable with you stopping by on a whim. What's the big deal????
