How to deal with her having male friends - ARTICLE

Is it okay for your partner to have male friends? Sure it is.

It validates her and refreshes your relationship.

You have two options:

  • Be controlling demanding and freaking out.


  • Letting it go and even enjoying it

The real alternative is for you to have female friends as well.

Again, open communication is what works best.

Talk about it with your partner and find out about your real boundaries.

The rules are the same for both.

If she can’t take it, then obviously there is no reason for you to take it either.

Limiting each other’s space kills the relationship.

Staying in touch with good friends and having time off out of the relationship is healthy.

It is of course a slight challenge and a stretch of your comfort zone but it is worth it.

On the long term everyone benefits from it.

Remember, it is still with you she decides to be.

You stay number one.
