Dear Panel,

My boyfriend has a problem with the fact that I have several single male friends. In fact, my closest friend is a man.

He Doesn't Believe In Opposite Sex Friends

My boyfriend has stated that no one that he knows has friends of the opposite sex and that "with my history" he has a right not to trust me until I earn his trust.

He as stated that he would prefer that I no longer socialize with any single males other than my closest friend as he knows that if he interfered with that friendship, he would no longer be my boyfriend.

He Reads My Email

He also stated that he would be more comfortable if I stop cleaning out my email inbox. Even though I allow him to read my email, as I have nothing to hide, he thinks I may be hiding something when I permanently delete email.
