Boyfriend Jealous of Guy Friend

Group Therapy: Boyfriend Says It's Him or My Best Guy Friend

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I’ve been dating my boyfriend for about a year. At first things were great, but six months into our relationship I’ve noticed that he was starting to get jealous of my best friend (he is a guy). I have reassured him that there is nothing between my friend and me, and that there is nothing to worry about.

To make the long story short, the other day he said he didn’t want me to see my friend again and stormed out. We haven’t spoken since. This has made me reevaluate our relationship. Do I really want to be with a guy who can’t trust me? The relationship I have with my friend is a brother-sister relationship. I can assure you he has no reason to be jealous of my friend.


While I understand having your girlfriend be so close to someone of the other sex can be intimidating, I have done my best to make sure he feels sure about our relationship and about my commitment to him. I can’t help but think that this is more about him not trusting me than my friend. Am I wrong to think this?
