My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost three years now. I've had a few girlfriends here and there but mainly my best friends are all guys. The girls that I usually hangout with are all gone away to college now. I don't feel that its right to hang out with my guy friends since I have a boyfriend now, not because I have feelings for them but because I wouldn't like it if my boyfriend was hanging out with other girls in his free time instead of me. The thing is, he's usually busy and since I no longer have a job and the only other commitment I have is school I have tons of free time. I get so bored of being home. I'm very lonely and its killing me. Is it wrong to hang out with my guy friends? I admit I've dated some of them before but we broke up for a reason.. guys would it bug you if your girl was hanging out with guys?

I would have a problem if my girlfriend was hanging out with any of her ex's.
I don't think there is anything wrong with hanging out with your guy friends, but you shouldn't be calling them all the time. Especially since you have a boyfriend. If you're hanging with them more than your boyfriend though, then that is a problem.
Now, if you're bored of being home, find something you enjoy doing. If you're lonely, go get a dog. Hanging out with them too much will only lead to them having feelings for you, and maybe you having feelings for them, and then you'll have a whole different set of issues. And even if that doesn't happen, it will save you the hassle if your boyfriend starts getting upset because of the time you spend with your guy friends. Sometimes you have to deal with your boredom and loneliness in other ways that don't involve other people. That's just life. You're not always going to have people around to make you happy.
So if you want to hang with them every once in a while, fine. But don't make a habit out of it. And definitely don't hang out with your ex's.0
