Is your romantic partner also your friend?
And if so do you treat this significant other like a friend/confidant ? Can you tell him or her anything without reprisal?
Yes, he is my best friend...for 43 years. We have friends but we prefer each other's company to anyone else's.
Yes! We actually started out as friends before we started dating. I really believe the strongest relationships are couples that can be each others friends as well.
My husband and I were acquaintances in high school. Actually went on ONE date - but between my awkwardness and him being shy it never went beyond that. We kind of kept tabs on each other through the years like when we got married (to other people), had kids, got divorced... After a lot of water under the bridge and nearly 20 years later we had another date and we've been together since.
He is my best friend. We can talk to each other. We express our feelings and have respectful disagreements. We've had highs and serious lows - and I mean lows that would test any marriage but we've been together nearly ten years and have never gone to bed angry at each other.
I hope that answered your question.
Yes, he is my best friend. We were friends before we started dating. It blossomed from there and now, here we are, 21 years later, closer than we ever thought imaginable and still going strong
In most cases yes your romantic partner can be your friend and you can share your conversations if you feel your romantic partner is trustworthy there should be no doubt in telling them what is on your mind.
Absolutely, he's my best friend, confidante, adviser. I won't say that I never say anything that upsets him, but I can trust him to think about it before offering a response, so it's usually quite constructive. I work from home and he's a stay-at-home, so we're one of the only couples I know who can spend all day, every day together and rarely ever fight. We talk all the time about everything from business, to hobbies, to politics, and so on as well as personal topics. Neither of us are very social people, so we're both quite happy with no company other than each other and the kids. If I need to just vent to someone without necessarily needing a response, I have a dog who is an excellent listener for that. Everything else, my husband is the first person I want to tell.
