<quoted text>having lunch with a friend has NOTHING to do with what your partner can or cannot provide...its just lunch, NOT "dinner and a movie"
but it's lunch? I start sweet talking my hubby at breakfast! He gets nervous. Very funny. So what does time of day matter!

<quoted text>some men do that, my hubby's good friend once walked up to me at a party and said in a whisper "u really look good"
i always knew the guy was a jerk, but right then and there i knew for sure. he was being a sneaky b*stard - lol

didnt matter either way, he didnt have a chance because i wasnt interested in him OR anybody else. already got the man i want.

i really believe if a spouse doesnt know this then Thats what causes problems.
nobody can take ur lover away unless they want it to happen.
IMO
your got a good marriage! What a creep!

<quoted text>Agreed.
I always have told my husband about men who
come on to me.
When we were younger he got pissed off about
it...now he just grins and takes it as a compliment.
well that's a baiting game! No wonder he does not let you out of sight! Your game forms insecurities within him and jealousy, your got him right where you want him!

I am the type of woman that men really want...

My husband can attest to that.
Those men only look at you because,you put your energy out there? If you didn't other men would mean nothing?
Do you have a good sex life! Or is some lacking for you to do this to your husband? That's like saying if you don't want me there's plenty that do! You are quite the controlling game player.

well you keep coming back? Theres new people daily with different issue trying to justify there life's! This is a safe space with a array of opinions. You make lots of comments with out really showing emotions. So that works for some. Most people get upset and can't handle the truth. Then they abuse someone and leave. The beauty of topic!

You misunderstood.
Guys like the way I look (apparently) but they
can't handle the fact that I am strong willed.
Tactless as well if my husband is to be believed.

If you are mistreating a child or an animal we are
going to have a serious disagreement.
It doesn't matter if you are a neighbor (that my
husband wishes I could get along with) or a cop.

I have strong beliefs and have a hard time controlling
them when it is something I feel strongly about.
That is why he keeps me far, far away from circuses.
He knows I'll go off on the animal trainers. lol

so if it means nothing that your so hot why do you tell your hubby about men checking you out? If those men meant nothing to you would not even notice them! Do you ever get turn on by the fact that men check you out?

Women try to change men. Every man they know, even if they think he's "perfect." Once he disappoints her, even once, no matter how minor, she must "change him."

The marital status of either one makes no difference. Women are never satisfied with men, nor CAN they ever be satisfied.

They're fun to have around, and many can offer great wisdom, and close female friends have the magical ability to determine the intentions of other women towards a guy. So women make good friends in that sense. But men who are UNWILLING to be constantly forced into a mold that keeps changing along with a woman's fluid, ever-changing whims are just out of luck when it comes to any relationship with a woman beyond friendship.

We see it at Hogwarts all the time. Age and experience doesn't even seem to be a factor.

<quoted text>That theory certainly will be more likely to prevent problems than cause them. If one so desperately needs the companionship of someone of the opposite sex other than a spouse, it makes me wonder about the real depth of the commitment and why that individual got married in the first place. At my age, I have seen many "innocent" friendships involving opposite sexes undermine otherwise solid marriages and lead to many things bad including adultery.

There is always the danger that one will start comparing the friend who does not have to live with you to a spouse who does have to live with you and put up with a lot more than the friend has to. "Friends" can also be dispensers of self-serving advice. My brother who was engaged to a young lady was once betrayed by his friend's brother and after this lady got married to that man, she found that the grass was not as green on the other side as she thought.
My BFF, besides my husband, is a man I've known for 14 years. We talk daily, but we live 2 hours away from each other. He is truly the best friend I've ever had, besides my husband! It can work.

It is the DISTANCE that makes that friendship possible. Move closer to him and that will change, I promise.

This is 2 comments that I've heard.

She's over 21...she knows what she wants.

I wouldn't have a woman if someone else didn't want her.

I definitely think men and women can be friends, in relationships or not. And JUST friends...NO benefits. My fiance has female friends. I have male friends. We tell each other everything and we know about each of the others. There are phone calls, texts, etc, but rarely face to face meetings. I don't have a problem with it. If I can't trust my partner any more than that, I'm not going to be in the relationship to start with. If he can't trust me, again, I'm not going to stay in the relationship. I'm 39 and he's 42. We've both had a lot of life experience before we met. We've both been married before. I don't have children, but he does. There's a lot of variables, but absolute truthfulness and honesty with each other is really the only way it'll work. I'm not attracted to ANY of my male friends. They feel more like a brother. Attraction would feel gross! As long as you are open and REALLY honest with your partner, there's no big deal. My fiance has all my passwords, access to all my accounts, phone, texts, etc. He does the same with me. There's nothing to hide. I do think if any lines are crossed, you just HAVE to end the friendship. I'd never let something come between me and my fiance. Nobody and nothing is worth that. A male friend I had all my life crossed that line and I dropped the friendship like a hot rock. Never looked back. Maybe not everyone can do it. That's ok. Everyone is different. There's no 'right' answer.

We used to live right next to each other. It's always worked!

That is how you remember is, years later, through the lens of "absence makes the heart grow fonder." You may even have been little more than kids back then.
