make that three. I would listen to your wife on this one. She knows you best and can obviously see how this approach would suit you and the way you are. Go for it. It won't look like you want to hook up at least and it will bring the two of you together a bit more as she will then have more personal information about your life that doesn't directly involve you but show you are interested in a deeper connection, friendly or otherwise.
