VIDEO: Some of our friends have been and will be lifelong. Which is cool…..However….having “friends” when you are in a relationship can be a slippery slope if you are not CAREFUL. We recognize that one of the driving forces of “our” existence is the desire for emotional intimacy ….unfortunately some folks confuse and misinterpret the intimacy in a friendship for something more. This becomes all the more problematic when you are in a “friendship” where you’ve failed to establish clear boundaries. At the same time there are those who would rather keep the boundaries fuzzy simply because they’d like to keep the option of getting warm and fuzzy with you wide open.
Here, we advise a young lady who says that she recently terminated her friendship with a guy friend because she doesn’t want to get in the way of his relationship with his girlfriend. She’s discovered that he’s kept a secret from her (a BIG one too…he has a baby!) and this has made her question the quality of their so-called friendship. “Did I do the right thing?” she asks. Our answer….Yes and No. Listen in to hear us talk this thing through.
