Krankor Posted May 3, 2017 Share Posted May 3, 2017 One thing I've always struggled with internally in past relationships has been jealousy over opposite gender friendships. In other words, male friends of my girlfriend. When are they too close? Is it OK to hang out one on one? How much texting back and forth is too much? My struggle has always been: if I object I feel like I'm being controlling. I mean, who am I to tell her who she can or can't be friends with? If I'm with her shouldn't I just trust her? Either she's a cheater or she isn't. But then when I don't say something, I feel like I'm being a "cuck" in today's vernacular; just sitting back and saying nothing while something may be happening under my nose. Even if she isn't cheating, she should respect the relationship enough to avoid even the appearance of impropriety, and if I don't say anything I'm not sticking up for myself. Now obviously, this is a two way street. I'm not so much looking for specific advice as much as just curious about other people's take on the subject. Link to comment
