    Question for the ladies ?

    Would it be a problem for you if your husband had a platonic female best friend ??

    Would you always have the fear that it would turn into something more or would you trust that it was just a friendship and nothing more would come of it.

    BEST friend??
    Yes, that would be a problem. I'm his best friend.

    A very good friend - that's fine.

    This^^^

    To be honest if I felt my hubby was closer friends with another female and confided in her more than me, his wife, I'd be cross.

    TBH in my experience, the male has a female best friend scenario, there tends to be more to it, more history or feelings there than are let on.

    OFC it's normal to have good friends of both sexes, but in my experience those who are best friends with a female tend to have other things going on in their head, just my opinion.

    My husband has 4 sisters and as a result of growing up with girls he has great relationships with many females but completely platonic.

    I am his best friend

    This ^^; I'd be devastated if I thought for one moment that my hubby couldn't confide anything in me or, worse, would keep things from me and then tell someone else. Surely that would mean the other person was more valued and trusted???

    edit:
    Yes, agreeing with BB as well
