You need to reassure your boyfriend (assuming you don't want that relationship to end). It would be very difficult to just cut off you friend of 10 years. The age gap is irrelevant in my mind.
I'm 50 and my very best male friend is 31...there's no funny business going on and no mother-son dynamic (though his actual mother is 52). When we met, he was 25 and I was 44...and we knew we'd be friends forever. I am also friends with his wife and godmother to their children, and they introduced me to my current boyfriend. So sometimes you just click with another person, and externals like age, color & gender are irrelevant.
Its whats called a FRIENDSHIP. Unless you and him were involved in a different way, I see no problem with it. Its great to have someone like that, they have seen more and can be of great help to you. Would it be more people had that kind of relationship, perhaps we could understand each other better.
certainly not friendship has no age barrier like love itis something that we can always give to others even if we do not possess it ourselves
it's not weird at all, your relationship with your boyfriend should be important, but explain to him why this man is your friend what he helped you through maybe then he will understand better.
I am 33 and my male best freind is 66 & he wants to sleep with me. lol<br />
that's why your b/f is jealous he knows how men are.
why not? i have older friends, too. (both male and female). it's good for everybody to have both perspectives. 38 and 60 is not like 30 and 8...
Friends, like gold, are where you find 'em.
as long as hes not like one of those online predators then its normal
Age ain't nothing but a number -- a friend is a friend and good friends are hard to find, and keep. Watch your boyfriend, he may cheat to get even ~ cause he doesn't believe in just friends .... .... .....
No. What's wierd about it?
Its not really weird, I sleep with 22yr old girl often usually at her request
