Last week I wrote about some of the worst behaviours of women who sabotage relationships and drive men away. Questions like: How close is he to that female friend? How often do they hang out?
Is it okay if she hangs out with another man?
Do they spend time alone? How sexy is she? Is she single? What do they do together? Does she flirt with him?
If my guy is hanging out with another woman, frankly I wonder why he would rather spend his free time with her and not me. The idea of your boyfriend having platonic female friendships on the side of your actual relationship will always be tricky. What really matters here is how you are made to feel whenever your guy hangs out with a female friend.
Does your guy go to an effort to make you feel safe and loved at all times, and never give you reason to doubt his loyalty? Does he only hang out with women with whom he has no troubling romantic or sexual history that would give you cause to worry? Is he completely open and free when he talks about other women i. To be frank, this is an issue for which I would never offer a concrete prescription because I just know that so many couples vary wildly in their rules for platonic friendships.
They have friends with whom they see movies, drink cocktails, go to music concerts, and even whose house they sleep over.

The friendship that turns one woman green with envy, another will shrug off and even happily encourage. Some will ask: Why does his old friend have to have coffee with him alone?

Places to hangout with platonic guy friend?
Thank you for wonderful info I used to be in search of this information for my mission. Nope not in my experience! Fucked his bf after bragging about me to friends and family and meeting them. Also the guy never came in my house to even look at the remodeled lodge. So idk how I was trying to do that!
I need to know. I have three kiddos with their father yet their dad has always brought females over to visit. But since we had our 3rd baby, she is just under 2 years old… my husband has been hanging out with a 23 year gal and her boyfriends on probation. For sure it was 2 times a week more often than not.
Hmmm also this gal drinks heavily and my husband has always drank about 6 beers every night. I drink occasionally… and some times I will have 3 to 4 beers with them IF my kiddos are tucked away. Usually I let em stay up 7ntil 10 or 11 and we all chat the kids and i but their dad is either on facebook with his back turned to us.
Or with her and for two nights he went to the bar with her and her friend plus her friend has me babysitting for increments… a toddler the friends… while they smoke. On her facebook which came up 8n my feed. I unfriended her and decided that she wasnt truly a good friend. I also asked why he felt like that. They are referring to a guy who is a felon who lives in the same apartment complex as my husbands 23 year old co worker and girl friend…. The girls said I wont let my husband and old bestie have friends and that im a fool for saying no.
Also his 23 year old friend brought her boyfriend over and my mom remodeled our home for us… well the friend brought her bf over and said that we remodeled and it looked nice while we were all outside Also I said in response, yeah Zach her boyfriend do you want to come see our new floors. ALSO must say my three kids were inside and watching a movie… our house is around to sq ft.
Its a camping lodge… we live in the country… any ways, the friend said also that I was trying to have sex with her guy when I invited him to see the remodeling… ugh The gal has no and is pushing for ppl to take her over to our house so I dont know how to say no with out feeling controlling. Idk what to do. Or amniotic in a very strange circumstance?
Do I have to accept this? If he is close with another woman, and wants to sleep with her because apparently they all do, then what exactly is the difference between her and me as the girlfriend? What if she has a crush on him? It would just make me feel completely worthless and like my relationship with him is exchangeable because he could just replace me with any random female friend of his. I will discuss 2: In both cases they were well aware that I am in a committed relationship.
It was that simple. She is extremely aware that I am in a relationship, and we rarely ever talk about relationships. I have sought to likewise develop a friendship with her husband so that he is aware that nothing is happening behind his back.
Hence when coming from a woman — it tells me, when a man smiles at you and you converse with him — your knickers automatically fall down! Personally — I have self-control, and an advanced education which allows me access to amazing words in the language — such as No! My husband was friends with a woman on facebook and at first I was absolutely fine with it, but then I noticed that he was constantly talking about her, how attractive she is, how intelligent she is…….
It really affected our life together. He became moody and argumentative.
The final straw for me was when I went snooping on his FB something I am NOT proud of but I needed some answers and he was telling her how much he loves her and he wished that they could be together she lives in the USA and we live in the UK and it broke us up.
I left him for 6 months but he begged for another chance. We are back together and he has blocked her from his facebook but I feel the damage is done.
Although they never had a physical relationship, I still feel that he cheated on me. I am seriously considering a divorce. Your partner should be the one that you confide in and hang out with. End of. My boyfriend hang out with this girl who he have a sexual history with. That girl is only a close friend.
Im really jealous of this girl and we fought because of this but we became okay afterwards. He told me to trust him and he did a promise on me. It depends to what extent the friendship overrides your relationship. People should be frank from the beginning about how liberal or serious they want to be.
If both parties are serious the guy other females should start to be less important as time goes by…I only speak from personal experience. But like the article says, it can be a tricky thing. I have close guy friends and lesbian friends I talk to almost every day. I love people in general. I love friendships. It gets you through the hard times in this world.
Now with that being said, my boyfriend has met, works with, hung out, or whatever with all my friends. My friends are a part of my life and he is a part of my life, so I like to include him in knowing them and being around them.
Can men have female friends in relationships?
He txts a lot of women and a lot are exes. He got too close to a female friend and slipped up big time. Just leave. We got one life and it goes by so fast.
Spend it with those who love you and are truly there for you.
