  12. is it possible for a woman to have close guy friends if she is in a serious, monogmous relationship? Close as in, hang out alone, talk often, etc. Thoughts?

  14. Yeah, sure it’s possible.  One of my best friends is married now, but even before that we had a close, platonic relationship.  We’re like siblings.

  22. I think it’s possible to have close guy friends while in a serious, monogamous relationship. I did it for years. I spend less time with single male friends now than in years past, but that’s because we are all in different places and none of us have the hang out time we used to have. I entered my relationship with multiple male friends and have since spent time with his friends alone, as we have hobbies in common that are not shared by my husband. I had a lot more close friends of the opposite sex because of the activities I was involved in during college when we met, and those friendships didn’t stop when I began dating my husband.

  24. Making new male friends these last couple years has been a little trickier. For the most part they are not single, and they are all old enough to be my father.  I know I would be uncomfortable if he suddenly started hanging out with a new group of women our age, so I just don’t ask the same of him.  I’m pretty sure he’s not threatened by the folk musicians I’ve been hanging out with, though.
