Platonic friendship with the opposite sex while you're in a relationship

Does that even happen?

Yes, for real yes, yes it does.

It helps a lot if the person in a relationship introduces the platonic friend to their s/o and they all three hang out together.

I currently have this, I talk to my girlfriend, and another friend of the opposite sex. They don't talk to each other much, but we're trying to figure out a time to all do something together.

Yes. Women have always liked me more than men. My sister is a year and a half younger than me, so I've always got along with them well. It takes a little something for me to be interested in a woman. Mostly Mexican heritage

Mhmmm its fine

but whats also human nature is sometimes you get them alone, you both get drunk, shit happens

You share tales of woe and console each other? Happens a lot to guys that aren't sleaze.

I have a platonic female friend at work. Obviously I'm not married but she is, so you can think of the premise from her perspective.

She may be more of an acquaintance though, since we never hang out outside of work. But she's married and has at least two kids at home. When the hell would she even have the time to hang out outside of work anyway?

Yes, but most of my guy friends are happily married. I only have a few single ones who don't try to make shit weird.

I dunno ... I always think one of them in the friendship secretly wants to bang and is looking for the opportunity

My girlfriend has a friend that seems quite interested in sleeping with us both. 

How do you feel about this?

Dunno. He has barely spoken with me so I didn't even hear this from him. And there's a precedent between him and my girlfriend long before we started dating. He's definitely not being weird or invasive about it so its whatever I guess.

my wife and i were platonic friends for the first like 3 years, while we were both in other relationships. we both became single within a couple months of each other. it wasn't until that point that shit just kinda happened.

Not all of us are hideously insecure with massive trust issues.

My grandmother was convinced you can't have platonic friends of the opposite sex unless it's like two couples that are friends. Then one time this conversation happened, my aunt named several boys from my grandmother's high school social group that she evidently mentally blacklisted once she married at 19.

Because you value their point of view and company? And even though you may want to see them less you might still want to see them sometimes.

......Not sure if you're trolling or really didn't understand that I was saying "to hell with a platonic friend"....Not have sex with them.

I'll change it...To hell with a platonic friend, you need a second boyfriend to blah blah blah.

Can't tell if you have no sense of humor or you think I don't.  Probably the latter. 

Or maybe puns are beneath you?  What can I say, I'm just part of the ignorant masses.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It's just that your humor might be a bit too next level for the rest of us.

The implication that she would keep a guy who finds her attractive around after she's married isn't much better.

Yes it's possible. I have several friends of the opposite sex and I've been in a committed relationship with balloons for like 16 years now. :ph34r:

Most of my friends are ladies.

Probably because I didn't have many friends unti i assimilated into the woman's mostly female friend group.

You know, I've wondered if that's a normal social dynamic; with the females of the species being the main coordinators of relationships.

Dr. Girlfriend knows most of the neighbors by name and the most I've ever really interacted with them has been nodding if I see them on the sidewalk.

Most of the females in our group have males, and I usually hang out with them when the females bring them to a group activity.

I wonder if they all have their own individual groups of friends too.
