Byline: DearColeen

Dear Coleen, MY boyfriend is very popular and outgoing, and has lots of friends.

One of his best mates is female and it's really starting to bother me.

When we first got together I found her a bit flirty, even though she had a boyfriend at the time.

I didn't want to come in as a newcomer and insist they stop hanging out.

However, we've now been together for three years and in that time she's broken up with her guy, but she's become more flirty with mine.

She often texts him late at night when we're in bed together and at a recent wedding she got him up for a slow dance.

Whenever I try to talk to him about it he brushes it off and tells me not to be silly. Am I overreacting? Coleen says.. THERE'S a really fine line with male and female friends. I do think you can have male friends, but I know some people would disagree with me.

If you do have friends of the opposite sex, you need to be careful if your partner is slightly uncomfortable with it.

So I think your boyfriend should be a bit more sensitive when it comes to late-night texts and slow dances at weddings.

If she wants to be mates with him, she should become friends with you as well. Could you invite her round when your boyfriend isn't there so the two of you become friendly too?
