While not everyone thinks they need friends, maybe your partner needs you to. My wife and I struggle with this. I...would appreciate if she had more people to relate to than just me. Our ex gf is now very close to her and its been great for her. They have been able to remain close and connected, although very painful for me for other reasons, it has been good for me as well just by how much it has helped her...
