When you have a girlfriend/boyfriend and you have a good friend or best friend of the opposite sex what is an appropriate and respectful way to keep this friendship whilst still having a partner and not having them feel uncomfortable?
Also if you have had on and off feelings for such good friend and kissed one time, is this still appropriate?

In my experience, there are two occasions where a guy will have a girl as a "BEST FRIEND." 1... The guy is simply biding his time in the hope that he will soon see her NAKED. 2... The "Guy" is a homosexual, and/or her own brother. The latter part of your question..."kissed one time, is this still appropriate?" Let's simply accept the fact that this answer should be obvious to anyone. Most "Attractive" guys are not interested in having a female as a friend. We are simply interested in "HAVING" the girl. My response is of course meant for those who seek the truth.0

I'm very lucky to have a boyfriend who doesn't care in the slightest. We both have close friends of the opposite sex, so we know it isn't any cause for concern.
If there were feelings for the friend at one point, that'd be a little more iffy, but if you trust your partner then it still shouldn't be a huge issue. I have the firm belief that being possessive (or otherwise weird) over who your partner interacts with will do nothing but harm the relationship. If your partner is devoted to you, the presence of temptation won't affect them.0
