And if youre constantly freaking out on your boyfriend about this, or spying on him (even worse) things are going to get very rocky between you guys. (You wouldnt want him coming everywhere with you and your best friend either.) Seeing them in action together should help you understand their relationship, and make you more comfortable with it.Its normal to feel a twinge of jealously and toss out a subtle comment or two while youre getting adjusted to the other girl. Now, say your suggestion to hang around with them doesnt go over well; one or both of them is being wishy-washy, or they reluctantly let you come, but he doesnt want to hold your hand; or they treat you like a tagalong and seem flirtatious with one another.Also, is it possible your boyfriend is purposely trying to make you feel jealous? You dont need a tug-of-war with your guys best friend, just so he can feel like Mr. Just dont resort to asking him to choose between you and her.The three of you should all be able to work things out, and if you cant, then your relationship may be on shaky ground to begin with.A trustworthy, genuine boyfriend or girlfriend can often become your best friend.But what if you were already best friends from the start?

It just didn’t occur to me, not during my four years of college on a softball scholarship, not during my time in Europe playing semi-professional soccer for Manchester United, not even when I marveled at my impressive tube sock collection did it occur to me. When I came out to my gay friends, I thought I was going to get some kind of a welcome gliteratti leather and lace parade with a ball later that night that included a step and repeat. All I got was, “You’re a slut, you’re confused, you’re in a phase, we don’t want you.” Well, fine. My tube sock collection might suggest otherwise, but I’m pretty secure in the fact that it’s all about the person to me.
The same goes if he chooses to spend a ton more time with her than with you.
I had a friend whom I’d known for almost six years.
I knew his passions and fears and appreciated his support through good and bad times, and over time he had become one of my best guy friends.
First of all I would like you to imagine me on a children’s rocking horse, which happens to be located at the top of a ten-foot slide.
The bottom of that slide is three feet from wherever you are reading this post.
