Re: Wife's male friend
I would try and get to know the guy.
I have several friends that are females.
On a closer note, I became friendly with one of my female neighbors, who is the same age as me and is very attractive. Her kids and my kids became very good friends so we spent allot of time together.
So much so, people thought she was my wife, but we were friends. I could tell that her husband who was balding and overweight was visable concerned "something" was going on, my wife knew nothing was, my wife is extremely attractive as well. But I am a decent looking fellow, Fit, in shape, dirty blonde hair, blue eyes.
Anyway I could tell her husband felt threatened by me, So I made it a point to spend more time with Both of them, and Also just him, to create that Bond between men. He soon realized I had zero interest in his wife, that she was more like a "sister" to me then anything else.
So now we are all comfortable in our own skin and can joke around. To teh point of During the super bowl they were Patriot fans and we were Giant fans, before the game, HE said, "Hey how about if the Patriots win I get to have sex with your wife, and if the Giants win you get to have sex with my wife!" and before I could get a word out...The DEATH look and his wife said, "Oh I will F him alright" He quickly cancelled the bet and we switched it to my suggestion of the other couple has to wear the other teams jersey to our annual luau......But since the Giants WON the game I can not resist to "dig" him a little, but he knows, My wife knows, and His wife knows....Nothing will ever happen between any of us except a good game of cards and a laugh over a few drinks.
Guys and Girls can be friends, but it takes Maturity and understanding of where the line is.
