what should i do?Watch
You should feel guilty. You've said he's a friend, but how much of a friend are you back to him if you don't catch up with him occasionally? Have you known him longer than your boyfriend? Do you think this guy doesn't understand boundaries or are their trust issues in the relationship?
Your boyfriend shouldn't have an issue with you hanging out with a male friend unless he has a reason to be worried. If you don't have any feelings for your friend then deciding whether to hang out with him shouldn't be that much of a difficult decision to make. I have a boyfriend but that has never stopped me from hanging out with my male friends. He saw how I am around them and he knows that they're like brothers to me
i do not have any feelings for him whatsoever, I only view him as a friend and only as a friend. i think he has a bit of trust issues because we are in a long distance relationship and he cannot physically see what I'm doing and that he should trust my word
i have a friend who does business and he is currently in the city. he asked me if i wanted to meet up with him as friends but i’ve avoided answering for a long time as i am in a LDR relationship with my boyfriend. i feel bad for blowing him off every single time because he doesn’t have much friends and he has helped me a lot financially (even bought me a macbook for my birthday) and he said he will try and help me become financially stable. i just feel bad because he’s doing all of this for me, and i cant even go see him as friends because i feel bad for my boyfriend. (for some reason my guy friend has helped and given me gifts and **** when my bf said he would even tho i’m not materialistic at all) am i wrong for feeling guilty even tho our friendship is strictly platonic?
If the answer is yes, then you should go visit him.
It's probably better if you diplomatically tell your boyfriend - in a downstated, it's no big deal, oh I'm just visiting an old friend who could do with my support kind of way.
Although it would also be understandable if you didn't tell your LDR boyfriend, because you don't have to tell him every single little detail of your life.
He’s a simp. He thinks gifting you expensive things means you MUST give him the attention he thinks he deserves, don’t buy into it it’s a controlling manipulative tactic!
All in all he sounds like he may be a great friend for the original poster to have. And that she would be a great friend for him.
From Mr Macbook's point of view, if she introduces him to one of her available, attractive and charming friends, then she will have repaid the gift of the laptop ten times over.
