If your significant other wanted to you stop talking to a friend of the opposite sex, would you?
The real question is: Would you dump your friends because your boyfriend or girlfriend asked you to?
I suppose it all comes down to how badly you want to be with your significant other. Honestly everyone has their own "rules" for relationships. Some folks don't want their mates associating with friends of the opposite sex or staying friends with their exes..etc Instead of one person trying to "change" the other person's wants or desires you are better off finding someone who (naturally agrees) with the way you see things. Move on. Live and let live.
When you get right down to it there is no "right or wrong" there is only "agree and disagree". Life is a personal journey. Each of us is entitled to have our own relationship rules and "deal breakers". You are responsible for your own happiness!
Yes. I've done it before. But I'm at least nice about it, normally. I don't get along with most people so it is easy to drop away from friendships.
The problem as I see it is in the relationship with the partner, not the friend, so I'd approach it with him and try to work it out. However if the partner had a genuine right to be worried- say the friend was in love with you- then I think it would be best for all involved to break off contact
Absolutely with out any question! If she was uncomfortable with it, it would end. But, having said that, my significant other is my wife. If it were a "girl friend" the answer would be "depends". Depends on how serious is the relationship with the significant other and the nature of the talking to a friend.
Total devotion is required to have a significant other, my wife, for 28 years!
The question is not clear. However, if you are asking that in a case where my partner wants me to stop talking to the opposite sex friend then what will be my steps - I believe that relations stand on trust and respect towards each other. You should always build a strong bonding with your beloved and let him free by not pulling him or try to rule his brain because you are an addition to the relations in his or her life and you have a separate place and honor in his/her life but friends also equally share a bonding of love with them which you should respect. However if any conspiracy or danger is felt by you, you have all the rights to advice.
It depends on how this friend behaves toward you and your partner, given that you are in a relationship. If the opposite sex friend is too touchy and flirty, they are not respecting the boundaries of your friendship, and are not respecting your romantic partner. Clearly your romantic partner is picking up on signals of inappropriate behavior, and it's not unreasonable to ask that you limit your time with this friend.
If, however, your friend is not doing anything wrong, then your significant other is probably being too sensitive. I think you really have to examine your friend's behavior objectively to see if maybe there is something to your significant other's request.
