Are They Really Just Friends?

You are probably not the only man in your girlfriend’s life. She probably has male friends that she hung out with long before you came into her life, and she’s probably going to keep hanging out with them even with you around. And there’s nothing wrong with this – unless of course her relationships to her other male friends are inappropriately close.

How To Tell If She’s Too Close To Him

Who does she spend more time with?

A friend of mine is married and spends most of her time with a male friend, not her husband. She studies at his house (and they aren’t in class together); she goes out with him for drinks at least once a week; she plays in all-night poker games with him and his buddies; they take vacations together without their significant others; and she emails him constantly. Sounds like she’s dating her friend, doesn’t it?

Who does she call when something important happens in her life?

Does her “friend” expect to be the first one to hear from her when she lands that important job or when someone in her family passes away? Who does she call when she needs someone to talk to about something? Her friend or you?

Does she invite you out with her and her male friend(s)?

If you and your girlfriend hang out with her male friends as a group, that’s good. But if she leaves you behind every time she goes out with her male friends, it doesn’t sound like she wants you around too much. And if she doesn’t want you there, you should ask yourself (and her) why that is.
