Dating a guy with lots of female friends

The point being, that if your boyfriend (or husband, or partner) doesn’t have any female friends, you’re on to a really, really bad thing.

There are four major potential factors at play, if the man you’re involved with has no discernable female friends.

Did you know that women don't like it when you fall asleep in front of the TV during date night?

When you're dating someone, you get an abbreviated view of how his or her mind works.

My female friends always help me figure out how I've accidentally offended my girlfriend when I'm feeling particularly clueless.

It's a great mating strategy, so that's why you have to keep revisiting those boundaries and keep defining the relationship." By looking into those boundaries and defining what is going on, you're benefitting your partner, your friend, and yourself.

And shouldn't all relationships be kept fresh by way of a check-in?

Why let someone you're seeing turn into the type of friend who won't stay in your life long?

Alternatively, why let someone you're seeing turn into a friend with benefits?

Instead of slamming him for viewing women as purely potential sex objects, rather than friends or confidants or companions, we took the piss.

But, while we were taking the piss, we missed the point.

In the almost-30 years since the film's release, a lot has happened in relationships and how we understand them. "Of course they can, if they keep their boundaries intact." The key, she says, is setting boundaries early on and keeping the details of your romantic relationship private to avoid emotional intimacy. One of my personal friendships blew up into a non-platonic mess after the failure to "check in" on the relationship midway through my new journey into a romance with someone else.

This tired notion that men and women can't be friends is not only wrong -- it's unhealthy. So, if you're running to your female friend to hand out juicy details of the hot sex you just had with your girlfriend… Not enough words were exchanged by either party and the platonic friendship devolved into a mess of jealousy and anger after it was eventually revealed (through some pretty harsh texts) that the friend thought I had blown her off for the new girlfriend. This simple act allows men and women to focus on the important things in a friendship… Why invest all your time hanging out with another person if all you're going to do is worry about what you are?
