Yes i think its perfectly ok. I always had more male friends then females. Just explain to your boyfriend calmly that they are just your friends.

If its a friend then yes it's okay but if it's a best friend? They say that for boys there is no such thing as just "bestfriends"

Hi a2rjun, It is what actually happens in love.Suspicion is always associated with love. Your boy friend feels that you may get attracted by some other guy,because you have been attracted by him. He will not allow you to have boys as your friend any more.If you ignore him he will fight with you and your love may end up in a break up. So, since you are already in love, you should forget other boys(however sincere you are to your boy friend) and this is good for you and for your love. Good Luck

Of course it is. It's natural for your boyfriend to be a little wary, but he has no right to stop you from having other friends. You should speak to him about it, and make sure he understands that he is your partner, but they are your friends and you like spending time with them too. He should also be "allowed" to have female friends and spend time with them too. it works both ways in a relationship. =D Goodluck

Your boyfriend shouldn't be bothered by you having alot of friends that are boys, because after all they are only your friends. If your boyfriend trusts you, he shouldn't have a problem with you having alot of friends that are boys. You could always say they are only my friends and you know your more important to me. Other than that i can't really think of anything else. ~Joeys wife

I always worked in the construction field so I always had male friends. I also worked on boats so once again I was in a "man's world". I do not see anything wrong with you having male friends as long as your boyfriend is included and understands that they are just friends. Shalom,Adoniah

Hello There!!! Yes!!! It's okay to have male friends. If you have a boyfriend, you should talk to him and let him understand that you a lot of male friends and that there is nothing to be jealous of.
