Can men and women truly be friends. Whichever side you think you stand on in this debate, you probably will think twice when you are knee-deep in some situations.
Let’s say your wonderful new romance is getting hot and heavy. You begin merging your social activities and coordinating outings with friends. You meet and interact with the people that have known your date a really long time. Then you meet the one (or more??) they have a history with – the horizontal history, to be more blunt.
Could you be at ease with your date’s platonic friends that are a mainstay in their lives?
I always find that people often say that they aren’t the jealous type and they could trust people who seem trustworthy. This is tested the most when you find out the “platonic friend” (and she’s says he’s just a friend!) had been intimate with your significant other.
When introducing platonic friends to your date, do you wait for the probing question “Did you two ever hook up?” or do you take the preemptive strike and mention prior to the introduction?
Would it bother you if you found out much later the history and evolution of their platonic friendship?
Does it matter how they came to be platonic friends? How do you know if they have both moved on and are being honest and forthcoming with you? Are we entitled to know this sort of stuff if it’s in the past and doesn’t really impact current relationships?
