No, my partner is an adult and he does not judge my friends based on their genitalia. Controlling another adult's social life is a huge red flag for me. I can't imagine being insecure and controlling enough to tell SO who he could or could not socialize with.
No, he does not. I told him at the beginning of our relationship my friends were there before him male and female. He was not going to tell me who I could and could not talk to. Those same friends, if they were true would be there after him. I've always stood by that.
we have mostly the same friends. and no, me having male friends is not an issue. his ex wife cheated on him. but i've made it perfectly clear that i am not her and that his jealous and insecurity is HIS issue, not mine and unless he has a reason not to trust ME, he has no say in who i'm friends with and vice versa.
Same here. Out of respect i left my male friends alone once me and my DH got serious, just as he left any female friends alone.
Quoting macysmom:I dont have male friends out of respect.
Quoting jillbailey26:The only male friends I have are the ones he's friends with. I'm friends with all of their wives. So there's nothing to even get mad about.

No. He was not happy about a male friend that I had when we met but he got to be friends with the guy and they were fine after that. Looking back I can understand why he was a little uncomfortable, I would drive his truck sometimes, let him drive my car and he would go out to dinner with my parents and me. I had never been in a serious relationship before so I never really thought that it would make my husband uncomfortable.
He trusts me as I do him.
I don't hang out with men alone, socialize solo or anything like that simply because I prefer being home with my family, but if my husband wanted to go out with a group of friends, and it was mixed with women, I would be okay, the same way he would be okay with me going out with a group of friends of both sexes.
