  • just cuz there boyz r around, my opinion no, they only tend to do that if other women are around... unless he don't want his friends hearing him being sweet to u or perhaps they don't want to let there friends hear them if u r telling him what to do or when to come home and stuff like that, men like to be the one to have there male friends think they r the ones in charge..

  • i haven't noticed so i don't think so but my hubby doesn't really gang out with the boys. he is a real committed family man. if the boys are around i'm usually with him and he calls them with or without me being present.

  • I've had ex's that did this, but my DH will talk as long as I want. It's actually usually me trying to get off the phone with him. The only time he cares about who's around to hear a conversation is if we are arguing.

  • My husband is the sweetest guy you will ever meet, but he still has a damn hard time saying 'i love you' at the end of the conversation if other guys are around. I think it's a masculine issue with most guys. we can see them be sweet and mushy, but guys can't. Some guys (I've known quite a few) can't even talk at all to their SOs while a guy is in the room because even that can be seen as not masculine.

  • My SO does this. I don't really care because I know its the truth. He doesnt hang out with them much, so when he does, I try not to bother him. I have had bfs that did this before I met my fiance, and they were lying. You have to follow your gut. If you think something is up, it probably is.
