Topics: Why Courtship is Fundamentally Flawed by Thomas Umstattd
I'm in a new relationship, around four months old. While we both approve of one another's close opposite-sex friends who came into our lives before we came into each other’s, I am not able to accept his new female friends whom he informed me he would most probably get close to.
My boyfriend has been texting many different girls after entering his university, and I am not totally fine with it. He says it isn't very healthy to limit possible friendships (whether it's of the same gender or the opposite gender). This clash has caused slight tension because he thinks that I don't trust him. For my part, I would not get close to guys who are already attached because I do not want their girlfriends to get the wrong idea and do not want them to feel uncomfortable.
How should I approach this issue? Are there boundaries that should be drawn with opposite-sex friends once you're attached?
