My boyfriend and i are both 23 and have been together almost a year now. He has this female friend of 8 years and every year they have this tradition of going to a basketball game for her birthday. Since im his girlfriend i wanted to go this year and since they are platonic friends why should be coming be a problem right? Well apparently my boyfriend told me that she is upset saying i just wanted it to be us two. Like she is still going to be with him what difference does it make that i will be there? Like you don't own him. I could understand if she was his girlfriend but she is not she is just a friend. I find it a little sketchy that she is so insistant on me his girlfriend not going and beinf alone with him. Surely if she saw it as platonic she wouldn't have a problem with getting to know me and besides she has the opportunity to make another friend. It doesn't sit right with me that she only invited him insteas of being like hey would u and ur girl like to go to a basketball game to celebrate my bday? I told my boyfriend that i would hope he sees wheee im coming from and he does but i find It odd.
She wants him alone?

Weeell... traditions can be pretty deeply rooted, especially if they go in place during tough times in life. Maybe going to that game with her friend means something special to her (not romantic) and she thinks it won't be as special if someone else comes along. She probably wouldn't invite one of her friends to go, either.
Maybe try and be friends with her outside of that game. If she still doesn't want anything to do with you, I'd say that's a little suspicious.0

What does your boyfriend think about it?
At first I was going to say I can see her point but I don't feel like I'd be the same. My absolute best friend is a guy and he's got a girlfriend now and I don't expect things to be the same as before... we used to always go for dinner, drives, nights out just us but even though I've not met his new girlfriend I know she'd not be okay with that and I'll respect that.0
