I am very bitter right now. I have a DF friend -- a male -- that I've been close friends with for months now. We email a lot, confide in each other and support each other. We both have relationships that we're committed to. My boyfriend is not comfortable with this friendship though and made me cut down contact with my friend. He says it's practically an emotional affair, or that if we continued our regular communications and continued confiding in each other, that it would be an emotional affair. So I told my friend we can no longer be in close touch because of this. I am bitter. I work all alone all day long with no one to talk to and go through ups and downs throughout the day. My friend provided a lot of much needed support to me. But my boyfriend doesn't understand this at all. He cannot sympathize with the fact that I have no one to talk to. I don't know if we're going to last -- me and my boyfriend. If my bitterness persists, we won't. I am hoping this is just a temporary state/feeling, but I am angry. I wish my boyfriend was more secure and less threatened by my male friendships. It is really starting to get to me. He is like this with any male I am friends with and feels threatened. I should probably join him in his therapy session again to talk about this, but it cost me $30 for parking the last time in the city. We need couples' counseling, I'm afraid.
