‘Think about your priorities’
Do you have two important men in your life? Woman’s agony aunt, Suzie Hayman, offers her tips on how to keep everyone happy… ✱ Share with your partner. You can spend time alone with your friend, but come home and tell your partner what you did and what you talked about. That way, they won't feel left out or worry you’re keeping secrets. ✱ Be clear. make sure both you and your friend know this is a friendship and nothing more. If you feel a line is being crossed, take time apart – or stop seeing them altogether. ✱ Tell other friends. make sure others in your social circle know the relationship with your male friend is purely platonic, so they don’t start to gossip. ✱ Reflect. Think about how deep the contact is with your friend. If you're giving him more attention than your partner, that’s the moment to think carefully about your priorities.
