Can Married Women Have Male Friends?

I had the most amazing experience with 2 childhood friends last week. But am completely perplexed by the entire event. Want to know why? They each had a penis. Their own. That that they were born with. I think. And it reminded me that I don’t have any male friend. Can married women have male friends?

The night was so spectacular, for me, that I was left thinking about it for days. And I came to the conclusion that I no longer have any male friends. It begs the question, can  married women have male friends? Was Harry right when he told Sally his thoughts? Is it appropriate?

Also, I had no idea that boys watched Full House so they could fantasize about DJ Tanner. MIND BLOWN.

I would love to know if you have any male friends that are not couple friends or work friends.

Like watching me talk? YOU DO! Well, that is great. Because I am pretttttty chatty.

  1. I’ve thought about this a lot over the last 10 years – I’ve always been good friends with the guys in my life – some from elementary school straight through to university, some really good friends in high school, and several more in university. However, in all of that time, I never *really* dated anyone. When I started dating the man who turned out to be my husband, gradually the other friendships lessened – not because of him, or any conscious decision that I made… But I was SUPER close with two guys who are now better friends with my husband than me. And that makes me sad, because they’re really awesome and I miss hanging out with them. …but then again, I’d be lying if I said that I’d be 100% comfortable with my husband going to hang out for the evening just with a girl friend of his, so I think, maybe it’s good that I’m not close friends with them anymore, because it wouldn’t be fair to my husband….. I can see why you did a vlog instead of a blog about this. It’s hard to articulate.

  2. This is a tough one for me. I was hurt badly by “my first love” because he had many female friends, one of which was an ex. I was young and stupid and “in love”…and my jealously of his female friendships broke us.

    I’ve had a few close male friends in my life. And I really miss them….I miss that connectedness. ..feeling comfortable to be me and say dumb stuff and have them laugh with me….they never judged me….and they were always there for me no matter what. …and they were funny, supportive and fun. They didn’t gossip or put others down. There was no relationship bullshit to mess it up. It was great!
    I’m not okay with my husband going to dinner, the pub, the movie, etc with another female so I can’t expect him to be okay with me doing it. And I definitely wouldn’t be okay if it was a group of females. .LoL. You’ve got a great husband!

  3. I’m not sure either. I know that there are a couple of guys that I grew up with that I have travelled to hockey with etc. and felt very comfortable with and my husband was ok with that. However, I can’t say that I would just call them up and say hey lets have coffee or a beer. I think you find such deep friendship with your husband that you are not really needing those other super close male friendships anymore. I wonder if you were a lesbian and had a wife if you would have close male friends and not female friends. Hmmm. Interesting.
