Welcome to the board, Aspentrees ~

Your friend may be right, or it could be that he has a new female interest that is threatened by your friendship, or there could be many other possibilities as well.

I don't think there's a need to discuss it with your husband, nothing to report, really; even if your friend does have a crush, it isn't going anywhere and there's nothing to be gained by discussing it with your husband. Nothing positive, anyway.

I think the best you can do is tell your friend that if others are questioning your relationship it's silly and of no consequence to you, that your husband is certainly not threatened by your friendship, nor should he be. However, if he (your platonic friend) feels it's best to back away from the friendship then you'll respect his wishes and do so. That lets him know straight up what you feel and puts the ball in his court; if he wants to back off, he has your agreement.
