Does it matter what your friends think about your girlfriend/boyfriend?
What to talk about it on a first date, how do to wear your hair for yearbook pictures, to pierce or not to pierce, which dress to wear to prom—these are all things we want our friends advice on…and we take that advice seriously. But what about when it comes to something as personal as choosing who to date? Are we right to consult our friends or are they likely to be over protective?
Assuming we have good friends, they generally want the best for us. Sometimes they see the warning signs, witness the quick tempers, or hear the snide comments that we’re quick to ignore in the early stages of a relationship. Friends can also be quick to judge bf/gf’s in an effort to protect us or because they’re jealous. Either way, it’s usually a good idea to hear them out before running to the tattoo shop to have your crush’s name stamped on your arm.
Do you consult your friends before jumping into a relationship? Is there advice valuable to you? Let us know in the comments.
