Am I over reacting?

Dh called and asked if he could grab a drink w a colleague last night-I said of course. He never goes out. They just closed a huge deal (finally). I called him back to ask something else and said, oh who are you going out with? he goes" Erin..er..Andrew. Or Steve." I was like, what? who is Erin? he's all, I didn't mean to say Erin, I meant Andrew. I grilled him who Erin is and he got pissed off and told me I am being ridiculous. I went to bed before he got home last night. Not sure what to say this am. I know he's not currently cheating, he's always home or at work. There aren't many women at work…but why would erin come out of his mouth, if, as he swears, he doesn't know an erin?????? and pls…try to be helpful and not make this worse unless you really think it is.

Freudian slip perhaps.

Yeah that's weird, and he sounds like he's not a good lier. He got very defensive quickly.

Hmm. Have you made a big deal before about him having female friends? Is there also a Steve there, or is it only Erin/"Andrew"? Yeah I would be upset about a lie, but not so much about a female being there.

I would think that was strange and I would definitely discuss it further with him

Erin could be Aaron.

He's really not a good liar. Planned a surprise party once and he stinks at it.

It's mostly his unease and defensiveness now.

He never once denied Erin being a woman. You'd think he would if it was an Aaron.

Quoting MichLW69: Erin could be Aaron.
