Re: My Husband's Best Friend
It sounds like he is phishing. If it remains constant and vague perhaps not but if it increase in frequency and directness then he is really phishing. What TX-SC said is the key. It's all about boundaries. Avoid time alone with him. Don't respond to compliments. Redirect topics to include your husband. Always talk positively about your husband and don't talk about the state of your marriage except to say its good.
He may offer favors or other things. You should politely refuse them and not let them be an excuse for more time with him or time alone with him. Try to always be with your husband around him.
Eventually he will get the message that your marriage is your priority.
