Relationship Concern / Advice wanted

I have a long time boyfriend. We've been together 2 years. The relationship is great for the most part. He's very loving and considerate. We are both divorced single parents and spend alot of time not only together but with our children. For the most part a practically perfect relationship.

Here's the problem.

He has a friend. A girl who is a "friend". Nothing is going on between them persay but she has done quite a few things to get on my nerves. Mainly boring lots and lots of money from him and "playing around" with him in front of me.

I hav tried to address the issue although the answer i got was "she's just a friend"

I'm not arguing that. He sees her as harmless because he and i are a pretty tight couple and it seems "harmless" to him. She's just being his friend. And I'm being made to look insecure.

I don't belive I'm being insecure. I belive she knows exactly what shes doing and I feel like it's disrespectful.

I havent pushed the issues much befor now but this past weekend at his sons birthday party one of our mutual friends (my girlfriends husband) pointed out to his wife that what he and her where doing "playing around" (it was a water fight) was disrespectful.

I guess that was the validation i was looking for that I'm not being the crazy girlfriend.

Anyway... the whole point is.. if you where faced with a situation like that how would you handle it?
