My 6 upper prom is coming up and being single and not wanting to go alone I have asked one of my male friends if he wants to come as my 'platonic' mate date. The thing is he has a girlfriend.
Both my mum and a friend have a probs with this. My response is that i dont think guys should have to give up female friends just because they have a girlfriend and if my friend coming with me does cause a problem between them (it's not definate he's coming yet, prior commitments as opposed to gf probs) then I feel that it shows a problem in their relationship (lack of trust) rather than anything i have done wrong. When I asked my friend to go with me I said if it was ok with his girlfriend and he made no further reference to her.
What do you all think?
See I think platnic friends of the other sex is healthy. If my boyfriend cant make an event and I need or want a companion then I ask one of our male friends to come with me. i feel comfortable enough with them to be myself and have a laugh but not have to worry about them hitting on me.
The only problem is when emotions and romantic feelings become involved in pltonic friendships.
im mor einto strictly plutonic relationships
Check to see if his girlfriend's alright with it first.
"See I think platnic friends of the other sex is healthy."
Yes, I think sex with plutonic friends is healthy too!
isn't platonic just sex without anything else?
I can't see the problem. I have some fantastic friends who are boys, and they've never been anything but that. I'd wet myself if someone suggested otherwise, me and say.. Matt, a boy I've been friends with since the first year of high school - it's just laughable. I can't see why anyone would have a problem with it, either.
