Some people really do have platonic friendships, which last all throughout their life. These are really special friendships for people who have known each other since they were small children; they might even have gone to the same kindergarten school. So now that we have established that platonic friendships really does exist, it’s time to move on to the other part of the topic of whether you can trust your partner to have platonic friendships with other women. Well it really depends on who the woman in question might be to him, whether it is an old school friend, or maybe an ex sister in law, there will be different answers for different individuals.
Generally speaking no one should trust their partner to have a platonic relationship with other women unless of course it was his mother or sisters, because after all he is only a human being with feelings and these feelings can get mixed up when you are in close contact with someone on a regular basis. When people are together a lot they usually form a bond just like a friendship, but sometimes things can get out of hand and the feelings start changing and you begin to look at the other person in a more romantic way, because of the close contact that you share on a regular basis. The office relationships which usually develop because of the regular close contact are a good example of how these affairs usually come about.
No woman in her right mind would allow her partner to go out to dinner three times a week with another woman and assume that it was just a platonic relationship, so how do you determine what is a platonic relationship and whether it is OK for your partner to have such a relationship with another woman, well the answer to that would be you can never be sure. You can try paying close attention to the way your partner acts around the other woman and this might give you some insight as to whether it is just a platonic relationship or something more, although you will never be able to truly tell because after all he might just be putting on an act for your benefit.
So the question is still left unanswered, as to whether you can trust your partner to have a platonic relationship with other women, because there is really no yes or no answer. You will have to judge for yourself depending on the other woman, but the one person you should never trust your partner to have a platonic relationship with is your best friend. Best friends are a no, no in this particular case, because they are usually the ones who are the cause of your breakups or the one that your partner usually ends up with, in the event that your relationship has broken up. Kind of a harsh statement I know, but it’s a reality!
