Someone made a post asking for advice dealing with a male friend of an SO that doesnt like her. It reminded me of this interesting article I read and I thought some of you may like it:

I’m so glad I don’t have this problem. Mi Fiance would never have asked me to marry him if his friends didn’t like me. They havn’t approved of any of his past relationships at all.

Very interesting article! I haven’t had to deal with this, to the best of my knowledge anyway. But then Boyfriend or Best Friend is 28 and most of his friends are in serious long-term relationships. His best friend is even getting married this summer after dating his fiancee for 6 years.

Bleh. I can understand, to a point, the very last one, but the rest of these are petty bullshit. They hate you because they can’t have sex with you? Ugh. Liking you has no up side? How about that your buddy’s girl doesn’t think you’re a giant douche? Or, god forbid, you actually have something in common?

I’ve never dealt with these issues. At least not knowingly. I think this is a pretty immature stereotyping of men.

I just laughed and sent this article to my fiance’s friends. I’m pretty close to all of them as well. Either that or they are all really good at faking it.

Isn’t the title of the site on the article supposed to be “boyfriends” not “boyfriend’s” Eh about the article but this woman seems to want to be a real life Carrie Bradshaw

The first point is just sad. If your boyfriend only tells bad stories about you to his friends, you’re not the one for him. Thankfully my boyfriend doesn’t hang out with guys who only like girls they can have sex with. The last point is true though, and applies to family members as well in my experience.

@badabing88: Those are pretty funny!
Luckily for me I havent had to deal with my Fiance friends disliking me. I talk to some of his friend more than he does some times! I love the guy talk. They are all very comfortable with me so it nothing for them to talk about a girls ass or boobs or how hott this chick was. Hey, not gonna lie Ill join in with them! Sometimes I get along better with his friends than I do when the girls they are married to or dating. True story.

Haha I can definitely see some of these being true for my Fiance and his friends but some aren’t. For example, his friend (now our friend) “S” built a “man cave” and invited the guys over after bowling last Friday. Well I also came along because I had been at home all night. They didn’t mind one bit. They have no filters so they had the exact conversation they would have had if I wasn’t there. When they talk about inappropriate guy stuff I actually find most of it funny and just laugh along. Also, my Fiance has always been one to do what he wants, no matter what and his friends know that.
Funny list though. They should make one about “why your girlfriend’s friends hate you”…I wonder what that would look like 😉

…Assuming the author interviewed male friends of hers like she claims, I dont see how it is stereotypical: men gave those answers.

@crayfish: Agree. I have never seen my husband’s friends act like this at all. I am wondering if this is an age thing quite honestly.

I used to have a friend whose husband’s friends all hated her, and i thought that was really mean. When I stopped talking to her because I realized she made me feel bad about myself, I also realized she talked a lot of shit about her husband and didn’t treat him that well. It seems all of his friends saw what both he and I were blind to.
Another situation that relates more to the article: a friend of mine was never that approving of another friend’s wife. They’d known each other since college and apparently he had changed a lot after getting together. I always thought friend #1 was just jealous that he had been single for so long, and didn’t understand that your life changes when you are in a relationship. After friend #2 and wife separated, i see that he was at least partially right. Friend #2 had been staying home all the time and getting a bigt depressed because his wife suffered from depression and never wanted to do anything. He seems to be taking care of himself much more and making good choices now that he is single.
