Hasha, I'm going to be a bit ageist and suggest that kind of mentality is typical of folks without much life experience. There is a difference between having close friends of the opposite gender when you're in a committed mono relationship, and putting yourself in potentially dangerous situations. One can have close friendships with people of any gender, but certain behavior just is not appropriate. There is something called the appearance of impropriety. As I said to the previous commenter who said something similar, you don't have any business engaging in the kind of communication this woman's husband was when you are married and monogamous. Going alone in vent channels, calling on the phone and texting the way the husband and this other woman were is inappropriate, period. Is that unfair? There's a lot of things that single folks can do that committed monos can't. That's part of being faithful to the commitment you made to your partner. Appearance of impropriety, people.I am a bi poly woman, and unfortunately in many people's minds that erroneously translates to "homewrecking whore", so I am extra careful with my own behavior around the married/mono people I am friends with. Which, frankly, more folks regardless of gender, orientation or relationship style need to be.
