I used to carpool one of my child's friends from a sports practice to their house a lot. Even if the husband was home. No biggie. The mom was appreciative. So then I invited them over for New Year's eve. They were running late as usual, so my ubby told my son to text their son ane tell them we were eating since they were over a half hour late and it was amost 8 pm. When they walked in the kid's dad seemed distant and when we took out pics he walked away without looking at our wedding pics into the kitchen had the nerve to take out pics from his wallet and show them off! The wife goes what about your exes to my husband! My hubby dated a lot when he was much younger like 25-30 years ago. My mil told her off and I started to get floored with the behavior. The mom was drinking a lot and went downstaris to watch a movie with her husband and my hubby followed to see what was up. My inlaws were like it is 5 minutes to midnight lets watch the count down. The couple seemed annoyed and then continued to drink and then I made the mistake of saying I do not drink in front of my inlaws or parents that much anymore.She left and I was like thank goodness. What do you think friend or frenemy....

Hmmm It sounds like you tried to be friends with them and discovered that they just were not your 'type', you did not hit it off or really have any common ground to build a good friendship on. I think I would be polite if I saw them again, but I would keep them as casual acquaintances-- the people you smile and say "hi" to in passing-- and I would not try to turn it into a friendship.
