Not allowed to have male friends

Posted by   + Show Post

Does your current (or any past) significant other have a problem with you being friends (just friends - never been anything more) with the opposite sex?  Do you have a problem with your SO being friends with the opposite sex?

1 wife knows of us & the other wife doesn't know of us but she knows he cheats. The wives seem ok w it cause they stay with a man they know who cheats & the other wife had 2 kids by other men while married to my fwb. The guys seem to see me as a sister. At work & minus the sex w r just like anyone else. We have an agreement, if u want to make ur marriage work its over & we r friends w out benefits again and if I get in a relationship its over until/or if we break up.

Quoting morethanamemory:


I can't even think of anything to say to this.

I guess a SO would have problems with you sleeping with your friends ...

Do their wives even know?

Sorry for being nosey this kinda shocked me.

P.S. I can promise you no matter what they say or what you believe if they are sleeping with you its pretty safe they don't see you as a sister.....since ppl don't normally end up in bed with their sister. Just saying.

Quoting mrsary:

If my SO had a problem w male friends then we couldn't be 2gether. Maybe that's y I am single. Lol. I have a lot of genuine male friends. I am like a sister to them & only having sex w about 2 of them. The sex means nothing cause they r both married. We do it & nothing more. No pillow talk or anything. They see me as a sister.

Nope, neither of us have friends of the opposite sex. I can hang out with him and his male friends if they were to come over but to have male friends that I talk on the phone with and go out places, no way.

He says he doesn't mind me talking to my guy friends, and he knows my best friend is a guy. When he hears about me talking to my best friend, he gets aggrivated and goes off on me. Then turns around an hour later like it's no big deal that I called my friend.

Only time either one of us have a problem is if the friend was one of our past relationships. There are a couple exceptions (grade school relationships... lol). Really though, none of our opposite sex friends are able to come hang out with us on a daily basis. Most of our friends are couples anymore.

My ex(daughters dad) didn't and still doesn't like me having male friends and if I do have them they aren't allowed around our 2.5 year old so they gotta come over when she's with him.

Btw he's married and hates any friends I have.

I never had a problem with my dh's friends (male female or otherwise) though he has a problem with all of mine. It doesn't matter if they are male or female, he thinks I'm cheating. I think it's ridiculous, but at the same time we all have to make sacrifices in some way shape or form. I guess that's my big one. Friends in general.

My ex boyfriend was like that, that's why he is my ex, lol my husband trusts me like I trust him, we don't really care
