    I have a boyfriend but this guy texted me and we've started talking. Is this okay? Should I mention it to my boyfriend? Cheers

    He's just a normal guy I guess. Funny, talkative. He sends kisses.

    nah. men and women can't be just friends. for instance: how did you and your boyfriend first start out? just as "friends"?

    You're allowed to have other friends but you need to be a bit careful. I think the test is that if you wouldn't want your boyfriend to see don't send it.

    Yes you should tell your boyfriend as soon as possible. Ask him if he's okay with it, if he isn't then either dump him or stop talking to the other guy, if he's okay with it then atleast theres nothing wrong. And i'd ask the guy to stop sending kisses or anything unnecessarily affectionate unless you start to get feelings for him and are considering pursuing him.

    I would mention it. There should be trust in relationships. My SO knows who I message, and that has made him more comfortable because he knows I have been truthful and he has nothing to be worried about. :yep:

    I agree with this.

    If he's just a friend I don't see the big deal.
