At 21st century, we girls tend to have boyfriends, and by that I mean, "male friends".
And likewise, given a masculine character like me, I have quite a couple of close friends who are guys too. If you peeps have been reading this space for a while now, you should probably see the same few male faces spammed in my picture entries. Yep, that's them. :)
Anyway, having male friends is seen as something perfectly normal to me.
However, it's a whole different ball game when you start having a boyfriend who is NOT a personal friend of your boyfriends.
And it upsets me, alot.
(Yes, I am currently facing such a situation.)
I don't blame Mr. Salty for behaving this way.
As in, him being unhappy and all.. As I believe that the problem lies in the generation gap. (Ahh, I can't believe that I associate every problem faced in this relationship to the AGE. But yah, I really think so. )
It's such a tough choice to choose between, boyfriends and boyfriend.
I wish I will never be forced into a situation where they have to be mutually exclusive. Either this or that blah blah, nooo! I hate to make such decisions.
I mean, friends are really hard to come by, and likewise, sparks and chemistries as hard. So, it really torn me when Mr. Salty is unhappy about my acquaintance with them. It's like a, "are-you-going-to-save-your-mother-or-me-when-we-both-are-drowning situation".
You know, the existence of this problem really propels the start of other problems.
It became really hard for me to speak freely to/ with him. I mean, he's probably going to be irritated, and make some remarks about my boyfriends which in turn irritate me.
Get the drift eh?
I've yet to come up with a really good game plan for this ball game. :(
Maybe y'all can help me out?
Leave a comment below (and not on Facebook)!
Give me some suggestions to rectify this problem.
Or simply share your stories, and/or past experiences.
I love reading love stories.
It's probably my biggest reason for starting Saturday Love. :)
