You can only wish that your man will be adored by your friends and vice versa, but sometimes that isn’t in the cards. You may find a billion lovable things about your boyfriend, but your friends may not see him exactly the same way as you do.
Let’s be real: sometimes we as women don’t always pick the good men we deserve, and our friends are dismayed and heartbroken when we choose someone below us. Of course, our friends and our dude simply don’t mix sometimes. Here are six signs your friends can’t stand your boyfriend.
1. They snub him.
They never, ever want to hang out with the two of you together. But if you’re up for a girls’ night they will come around. But to be in your boyfriend’s presence? Well, they typically make excuses. Perhaps you ought to wonder why they never want to see him.
2. They try to convince you to dump him.
In a fight with your man? It’s guaranteed your girls will be beside you, rooting for you to dump that dude they cannot stand. But the second things are peaches and cream between you two, they back off a bit.
3. They constantly point out other men.
If you’re out or share mutual friends and connections, your girls will point out eligible great guys (even though you’re not available!), and talk about great mutual male friends you share together. Why? They’re wishing you would break it off with your guy and find someone else.
4. Your boyfriend doesn’t like your friends, either.
If your man doesn’t like your friends, it could be because they share nothing in common. Or he can tell that they just don’t like him.
5. They incite fights with him.
Your BFF who likes to pick fights or is quick to stick up for you during a fight between you and your guy? She hates your boyfriend. She’ll also enjoy getting into debates with him and won’t shy away from disagreeing with him, because she isn’t afraid and most likely doesn’t respect him.
6. They tell you, straight-up.
If your friends outwardly tell you they don’t think he’s good for you, they don’t approve. Why? Are they being b*tchy or are they seeing issues that you’re avoiding or denying? This is something only you know the answer to.
You can’t please people all the time. You can only please some people, some of the time.
Carve out one-on-one time with your lady friends who don’t approve of your guy if they’re truly worthy friends, and explain to them how you feel about your guy. Ask them to stay by your side and support your choice even if they think he isn’t good for you.
Chances are if they’re great friends, they will be there no matter what. And if your guy really is a dud, they’ll be your shoulders to cry on.
