Yeah, if you're insecure.
Its the same with women as well, not all men are insecure and jealous. If you love and trust each other then there shouldnt be any problems regarding friends of the opposite sex. Ask yourself, If he has female friends who he hangs out with regularly, do you wonder what they're up to ? If the thought crosses your mind then you both need to talk more seriously about it. I dont understand why couples dont discuss this possibily criplling issue as they get to know each other.. and if one is the jealous type stay away. Hope you two resolve this
Then I dont know why you didnt know he was like this before you married. I, personally wouldnt try to develop friendships with females if I was married but The female friends I have already, are like family and if my wife was jealous Id be very worried it would effect our relationship for the worst and Id have to hurt myself by letting my friend go. =(
Thats tougjh. Do what you want but having guy friends around will create tension and possibility of something bad to happen. I wouldnt try to create friendships with women if I were married but the female friends I already had for years I could not break off they are my friends because we proved we mean a lot to each other and got through life together. Noone can take that away but as long as your not hanging out with guys you just met and have fun with instead of your husband , If youve known them for a long time, dont let anyone take them away. Be faithful and loving and his jealousy will fade, xo God bless you both
oh ok then Hes totally out of line If youve known them forever .. Tell him to stop this childish thinking, That its no fair, and that you wont ever stop being with your family because best friends are just as much if not even more than some family. =) Say "Get over it and grow up!
upgrade isn't the right term for this situation. What he's afraid of is that every straight man will think about an attractive female friend sexually.
yeah, it's not impossible to be friends with guys but that is definitely something that has crossed their minds at least once.
They don't think that. Men are bound to wonder if their partners spend a significant amount of time with male friends, though, just as females might wonder if their men spend a significant amount of time with female friends. Hey, at least your husband sees you as an 'upgrade'! There's a compliment in there somewhere ;-)
Not true at all.
Seriously, do you think men who are 'friends' never sized you up? Come on, we are hawks!
I'm not in a relationship yet, so I can't comment on what I'd tell my girl. Essentially, I meant to say, men are hawks. Size up, trade up, trade in, swap - for me, men a re pretty lustful.
That is a lie people are perfect just the way they are, most just don't see that others appreciate them and value who they are.
It's instinct. But good men ignore it.
