Ok, so Im watching TV, and a commercial comes on. Boy gets hugged by girl that’s not his girlfriend. Girlfriend doesnt like it. Boy says he should be allowed to have female friends. Girlfriend doesn’t like it. Boy is shown kissing girl that’s not his girlfriend. Hrmph.
It occured to me that neither my hubby nor I have friends of the opposite sex. I don’t think it was intentional, it just kind of happened that way. And I like it. I trust my husband implicitly, but something about the idea of female friends just doesnt jive with me. (Maybe because in my much younger, much less respectable, much looser days I myself was one of those “friends” hrmph.) I guess the way I see it, regardless of the level of trust in your relationship, temptation should never be invited in. And friends of the opposite sex are a fancy, embossed invitation. The kind with the vellum, and ribbons, and fancy offset printing.
(To be clear though, I would have made an exception for friendships that had been established before me met. Maybe. Possibly. Ok, not at all. I would have slowly nagged and chipped away at it until either she hated me, or he was just tired of hearing about it. Hey, Im just being honest.)
(We could totally have friends that were couples though. Like, if he had a female friend, and she was in a serious relationship, and they wanted to come over and bring their Miis, we could SO do that.)
Im rambling though. And showing my unreasonability(edit- is that a word? no? lets roll with it anyway.). Eh.
So what do you guys think? How do you feel about your partner having friends of the opposite sex?
