My boyfriend has a female friend.

And I am perfectly okay with it. They are close friends, and it doesn't bother me. Why does it bother so many other women in the same situation?

  • My husband has many female friends and I only have issues with a couple who before he met me didn't give him the light of day and then once we got together it turned into a flirting competition for those girls, not to mention I began to hear talk that they were going to "try and steal him back" from me... yeah I made him cut those crazy girls out. But the rest he has kept in touch with, and if very good friends with them and I have made them my friends as well.
    I know people who have issues with me allowing my husband to be "Friends" with other woman and it's because I trust them, I know them and it's none of their business lol.

  • It doesn't bother me. DH has lots of female friends. Most of them are married to our guy friends though. If DH came home one day & said he met a new female friend & they started hanging out all the time without me, then i would begin to be bothered by it. But, as long as we're all friends, I'm cool.

  • guess it depends on the situation.

    I have several male friends and one of them prides himself on the fact that he can be a complete gentleman, and that he values friendships enough to not the line in friendships.
    that there's a time and a place, and when it comes to his friends he just doesn't go there.

    I guess it depends on the guys. Some guys can't be just friends with a woman.

    my buddy, I look at this way.............
    he's one of my girlfriends, but with different plumbing!

    and no, he's not Gay BTW.

  • Insecurity, Jealousy, Immaturity... I have never understood it either...

  • Insecurities, and nope, I don't understand it either. Jealousy is such a wasted emotion.
