Friendships with Single Men and Married Women
Single men and Married Women
· Interestingly, some single men can be friends with married women; do you think this is a good idea?
I know of single men who are friends with married women and that is allowed by their married partners.
· It all depends on how and what the friendships develop into, right!
The single man flirted with a married woman and had spent more than an hour with her alone in her home while the husband was away at work.
· They talked and laughed together like really old friends could this slowly forming friendship turn into something more?
All the time spent together can become something nobody ever dreamed. On the other side of things they can just remain good friends.
If a woman lacks her time with her newly wedded husband she will look the other way. Certain acts between two such friends can trigger a spark and their actions can show something more.
Alone time together means more problems.
· Do you think the situation should be avoided?
· Would you be jealous of your partner if she spent too much alone with a single man?
In this case her husband works a twelve hour shift for four days; two days are the morning shift for twelve hours at a time.
The same for the night shift and, thereafter, has two days at home.
On the free days he works his fields manually and spends all this time to prepare the ground for the new season.
The wife is fed up of living this way and they have only been married for three months.
According to her conversations, she is quite fed up of spending too much time alone, and now the single guy comes around to make her lonely days feel happier and fulfilled.
She is in no position to talk to her husband to spend time with her he is too conservative and dominant to take heed to his wife's conversations.
· Would her husband like the idea of this single guy visiting his wife, after all, they are also friends?
In this 21st century you would expect different from men but most men don't approve of their wives having single men friends..
They are afraid or insecure of something that might happen emotions can be complicated and grow between two people.
It is normal for such feelings to develop as they have developed before in the marriage.
It is however, up to the two people who chose to be friends to prove they can be trusted together.
If the single man has other thoughts like something else up his sleeves and knows how to get his around the married woman that should friendship should be totally avoided.
Some men don't mind their wives having single men as friends it is a new world you live in and anything goes for some while for others these friendships are totally restricted.
Saying, ''hello,'' and the usual greeting is fine but further detailed conversations are not allowed
· Can a single man be friends with a married woman without the thought of getting down to it?
Trust plays a big role in friendships and especially, with a single man and a married woman.
You could be friends without thinking of romance.
The husband will think otherwise even though he trusts his wife deep down he can still feel jealousy. The over protectiveness can show in some situations.
You are his wife the thought of someone else being with you when he is not around can build a slight mistrust through his mind.
A touch on the hand, or face from the single man can make the husband go into a tailspin.
The friendship can turn to meeting secretly and then from one step further to another all this can happen very fast.
Sometimes the single man can be best of friends with both people, with the husband and wife and the single man can find his way in between their marriage.
· That could be a triangle won't it?
The married guy is not familiar with these situations he either trusts his wife or does not care who comes by.
Every man won't have an evil mind about his wife but it is a strange habit if a single man comes by and spends an hour or two talking to a married woman while her husband is not at home.
It does give others a low character of the woman and this shows the married woman's weakness.
If a married woman seeks the friendship of a single man, and prefers to be alone with the single man secretly then certainly something has to be going on.
Married woman in many marriages are not allowed to have free conversations with single men.
It is cultural or some men are just old-fashioned and don't like the idea of their wives being friends with single men.
If a married man loves his wife enough to care about how she spends her time with.
· Won't he be interested in the single man visiting his wife at odd times?
Women should not use their attractiveness to be with single guys it does not give them the right to behave this way.
Most single men take advantage of the situation when attractive married woman throw themselves at them.
· Do you think married women should be friends with single men?
· Why can't married women and single men be good friends?
The husbands find this a weird thought and think right away their wives are looking for something more from the single men than just a good friendship.
It does not look right in the eyes of the married man for his wife to have a single male friend.
If a married man does not love his wife he can ignore her friendship with the single man.
A single man and a married woman are bound to cross the lines in time things can go further with uncontrollable feelings.

If you want to be friends with a single guy be straight forward and don't hide your thoughts friends are always there for each other and they don't hurt the other.
An affair grows, and once they have stepped over the boundary there is no turning back. Think carefully of what matters most before you become friends with that single man.
You got to know what you want from your life.
You can say what you like, and do what you want. When marriages break there is often someone to blame for what went wrong.
Many good marriages go bad from the appearance of the third and unwanted person.
Relationships go bad when one becomes too trusting and thinks it is all fine until one day everything falls apart.
Love is from the heart and when she can't go on with her days without seeing that single man. Definitely, there is something brewing up or has been brewed up, and that is when she has to give it up.
Too much can go wrong from a simple friendship, feelings can't always be controlled.

Too deep can ruin it all and is only a matter of time before it leads to a break up.
Certain parts of a marriage show you that your friendship with that single man is only a friendship.
You will always want to go back to your husband and tell him that he was right.
Admitting to your husband that he that was right is not easy and facing up to the truth is also not as easy as you thought it would be.
· You can't hide from the truth.
· Only the truth can let your heart free.
