Friends do, however, need to put their personal feelings associated with a given situation below the loyalty, responsibility, and trust that exists with each other. Hopefully you have these in your life, and if you do—make sure that you listen to them when you need to. Consider that your friends may hate your partner because they know you and what you want.If they cannot do this, then they are probably not friends. Sometimes, we deliberately choose to do something that is not good for us. They may see, no matter how much fun you may be having, that your relationship is going to go nowhere.Maybe while he eats chili, he likes to watch Casablanca, and brush his rescue guinea pig, neither of which you like, but maybe those things will somehow make you happy. Sometimes in order to eat a rotten orange, you have to peel the rotten orange to truly see the lack of beauty inside. Appreciate the fact that they have an opinion, but recognize that you can ask them not to share it—especially if you do not agree with them.Friends should have the ability to disagree comfortably, and at times do not even need to like each other.Why not go in for the kill and sleep with that waiter who wrote “fatty” on your receipt. Walk into the darkness and find a sad placeholder for light.
I’m here to say that maybe the person you find unfunny, physically repulsive, and without morals is the man you’ve been waiting for your whole life. I’m saying that you should abandon them altogether. You could start small, by striking up a conversation with that guy at the gym who farts on the treadmill.
While covering a variety of topics, from Lena Dunham to football to the general unlikeability of Taylor Swift, you find yourself up against a wall with this guy every time.
Whatever opinion you might have on any of the above topics is met with an assured rebuttal from your friend’s new man.
HE SAID: Dates are very personal choices, and as friends we sometimes forget that.
We have a tendency to look at the people our friends date as if they were picked out of a lineup, thinking about all the other people you could have had and compare them to the one you chose to be with.
