    I think it's perfectly fine to have close friends of the opposite sex, whether you're single, dating, or married to someone else. One of my two best friends is a guy, and he's been my best friend for 13 years.

    Unfortunately, a lot of guys are not okay with their wives/gfs having male friends. I was married for four years, and my husband admitted after we separated that one thing that always bothered him was my friendship with this other guy. It's not the reason my marriage ended (I left him because he treated me like a piece of the furniture), but apparently it was a source of resentment that I didn't even know about.

    Hmmm...do I have a point? I guess I think if you have both a significant other and a male friend or friends, you need to keep the lines of communication open and make sure your S.O. understands that your friend is just a friend.

    And you should NEVER have to give up your friends, of either gender, for your S.O. Just my opinion...

    I think having friends of the opposite gender is healthy. That's why I'm here. To find more friends. I feel I can talk more openly with the ladies than I can with other men. My wife and I have a very honest relationship. She has some male friends and I have some lady friends. I see nothing wrong with that and neither does she. She works weekends and I work weekdays, so we have a lot of time to talk to others. But we do take advantage of the times we are together.

    my best friend is a man, who is not my husband(go figure)...he is like my brother and as a matter of fact I introduced him to one of my best female friends and they are happily married. Neither of our spouses mind cause we are all friends. I think that's where the mistake is...my friends should be my husbands friends and vice versa, if not something is wrong with the picture!

    I have a lot of married female friends, and I am usually friends with their husbands, too. Does that mean I am bi-friendly?

    I have men friends too and they are JUST friends. They aren't married but no lines have ever been crossed. You can get alot of advice from then when you have a problem. Also they are good to have around when you need some work done around the house LOL
