We tell our friend about our problems with our boyfriend, because they have a more open minded. We use our friends as a sounding board, and see if they feel about the situation the same as we do. But so many times girlfriends, feel the same way we do because we are females. Females go by what our hearts tell us. So many times Males dont see things the same way we do. What might look like problems to us, may not look as problems to them, or not as serious. So many times guys, blow us off when we try to explain how we feel, and what is bothering us. If something is bothering you, you need to tell him, but maybe dont go into so much detail with him as if you would with your girl friends. Males attention span is so limited, unless sex is involved. But if he truly loves you, he will work it out. Good Luck!
ANSWERWhat you should definitely keep with your boyfriend are the personal things you guys do together alone. However, if you really trust your friends there shouldn't be a problem talking to them about your relationship with your boyfriend. Make sure your boyfriend is cool with it or you'll have problems. Good luck with your relationship
it is understandable if your boyfriend is wary of the relationship between you and someone you used to be attracted to. on the other hand you don't want to be in a relationship where your boyfriend is cotroling you. you should try to have a chat with him about it and hear out what his reasons are behind his protectiveness. hope this helps♥
