Holy shit man, Chemda is so on the money. I had to go back and listen to Chemda's analysis of the listeners' situation with her male 'best friend' 4 times. I've been the guy in that situation before and just blindly walked along until everything imploded.

Chemda dropped some heavy insight bombs in this episode.

I guess I wasn't clear in what I was trying to say, because of habits we formed when first dating, when I couldn't speak Japanese well (I had been living here for about a year) and her imprecise English we really had to learn to listen to each other and to be clear in what we said and meant. Not to say that we never fight but even now we seldom have that "I thought you said/ I assumed you meant" kind of fight. We dated for two years before getting married, my Japanese improving the whole time. Now I have been here 26 years and we have been married 23. Still I think that learning to listen to each other and not guess at what was said has led to our being happy today. Of course now my Japanese is much better than her English. I was interviewed on TV a couple of months ago, take a look if you are interested, it is subtitled in English:

X-friends

I married my ex's sister and I'm best friends with my ex's husband. I'm certainly friends with my wife's sister but like Chemda has said many times regarding dating Keith (not quoting) it's hard to remember dating I just feel like friends.
Furthermore we all live in the same house, and for 8 years now. I drove my ex to the hospital to have her 2nd child while her husband drove from work to the hospital and my wife watched the baby at home while the baby slept and came later.

So, to say you can't be friends with someone of the opposite sex is to say you either haven't really tried, you have mental damage, or you can't control your junk (which to me is not trying or metal damage).

Maybe you just don't trust someone else to be friends with the opposite sex. So, either you are dating people you don't/can't trust or you have trust issues.

Sarge and i reconnecting has been awesome. it only works b/c neither of us want to fuck each other and my dear husband is the chillest motherfucker alive. i've taken him to his colonoscopy; picked him up from the mechanics when his car did a thing; he's come over at an unreasonable hour to kill a snake that had gotten in the house while Bear was away; our dogs play together; we still talk to each others' mothers. every once in a while we'll sit on his front porch all afternoon, drink beer, and not talk. i don't have other experience with this kind of thing, but so far, it's working out pretty swell. we were shit awful partners for each other, but somewhere in there we did become family.

I'm currently not friends with any of my ex boyfriends but I'm friendly with many.
An important factor is that none of them lives close to us. So we maybe text sometimes and and see each other close to never.
It also helps that I'm together with my husband for 11 years and every former relationship is very long ago and cant be compared to the experiences ( children, marriage, travel) and intimacy I have with Mr. Apia.
I am my husbands first real relationship.
He was 29 when we met, but he had nothing serious in his life before.
So there is not a real ex to be friends with on his side.

You should never lie to your partner about who you are friends with. When a person is really important to you, you talk to your partner and arrange a meeting.

Sometimes I wonder how it can be that I thought I couldn't live without a guy and now all be do is wish each other a happy birthday on Facebook.
And it's fine. I broke up with every one of them.
I always really tried, but had to realize I can't deal with that person long term.
I wonder very much why it's so different with Mr. Apia.
I never questioned our relationship. Sometimes we argue but I never wanted to break up.
I'm sure he is one of the few men I can be with for a long time. He sometimes annoys me ( nerd), but the love stays.
