When my boyfriend and I started dating (2 years ago), I broke up with his best friend for him. Now we have moved in together pretty far from all of my friends. Now, I work 2 jobs, go to school, and only have him to talk to and hang out with. In my opinion, that isn't healthy.
At least once a week, he has his friends come out for the night. The other night I met up with this guy that I've been talking to for a couple of days. He works for the same company, just a different location that me. We hung out for about 3 hours and grabbed some food together. He gave me a hug when we were leaving.
My boyfriend says that it feels like I am sneaking around because I didn't answer my phone when I was with him.. but I hadn't heard my phone go off.
My boyfriend feels like this is the same situation of how we started dating. I admitted that it is similar, but I was up front with this new kid.. I am not available at all.
My boyfriend is jealous that I am talking to a new guy. I told him that he has no reason to be. I'm not wrong for trying to make a new friend in my area, am I. I need someone to help keep me sane.

Well you kinda brought this upon yourself to start with. You broke up with his BEST FRIEND for HIM. Of course there will always be some trust issues from his perspective considering you did flip flop between his best friend and him. IMO, this shouldn't have happened in the first place. But anways...
But if you two really do love each other and that breakup with his best friend wasn't for nothing, then he should understand your situation and let you make new friends, guys or girls. Although I'm guessing he would rather you make friends with girls or gay guys. He should trust you but I guess I can understand the apprehension. You can't blame the issue on you or him. There's trust and jealousy issues on both sides.2
