I was recently reading an article about the opposite sex friendship when in a committed relationship and I just wanted to give my views on that.
Let me just put it out there that I’ve had such a terrible experience related to that subject. I was perhaps too naive and too young to think it wouldn’t happen to me. Short version of the story, I was dating my high school sweetheart at the time when he met a young lady. She was very affable and has that innocent look about her. Months later, him and I broke up and short after, he was dating her and they end up getting married.
Am I okay with my partner having opposite-sex friends?
my answer is NO, I’m not okay with it
the reason is because I’ve seen too many relationships get ruined because of that. In most cases JEALOUSY is to blame. we all get jealous from time to time, everyone does, and a little jealousy in a relationship is healthy. On the other hand, it can also be the end to every great relationships. Some people are simply liars and untrustworthy; people like that can easily ruins a good thing because they are looking out for themselves, they don’t have your best interest in mind. Having a friend, means frequent conversations and spending more time together, and one thing leads to another, you find yourself fighting with your partner about the simplest stuff and so on. I can understand if it’s a mutual friend, then that’s different or if it’s someone you have been friends with long before the relationship started. I wouldn’t tell you to stop being friend with that person.
Don’t get me wrong there are great friends out there, you just have to find the right person to be friend with. I’m not saying you can’t have opposite friends because you can, and it can work. Some people are able to bring the best out of a person, some give great advice, and others will support your relationship. Just be open-minded of who you choose to allowed in your relationship, have boundaries, and stay loyal to your partner. It all comes down to self respect, love, and how strong the relationship is.
I want to hear your opinion on that subject, so please leave a comment. Thank you all for reading😘
