    @MrsPanda99:  I like them for the most part but I definitely wouldn’t be friends with them if he wasn’t friends with them first.

    @MrsPanda99:  I can’t think of a friend of his that I don’t like- they’re hysterical. Although I can think of several that I would prefer not become role models…

    I met my SO through his friends. I like to hang out with boys. They’re simple, uncomplicated and generally like to have a good time. Win win in my book. Before I met my love, I was one of the boys. Quite literally. Almost to the point of hilarity. When we were still just friends, my SO picked me up from my brothers wedding and took me back to the boy house. I walked in, wearing a dress and heels and even makeup and they all simultaneously turned their heads and one of them vocalized “you’re a… Girl..?!” And then I ran to te bathroom and changed. 

    So yeah, I like his friends, they’re my friends too!! And they drive me crazy like real friends do sometimes but I love’em for it and we try to support them no matter what. Truthfully, most of our friends are just that, OUR friends. We both have a couple old friends that live far away but we don’t see them very much at all. Haha.. He doesn’t like most of my female friends from other circles but that’s because I used to be a different person and my old friends reflect that a bit, they drive me a little nuts nowadays too! But again, I will love’em forever.

    I try to cherish all the good friends I’m blessed with! Life’s too short to not like the people around you 😉

    I love most of his friends, but some are just okay.  He has one friend from back in undergrad who lives in another state that I don’t like, but he sees him maybe once a year, so it’s not a big deal.

    @MrsPanda99:  My Fiance and I’s friends merged quite nicely. Before we started dating we knew alot of the same people, so alot of his friends were already my friends and alot  of my friends he already knew.

    Fast forward 6 years, we’ve grown up and cut out alot of friends that weren’t necessarily good for either of us. We now have a core group of friends, that’s made up of both his friends, my friends, and new mutual friends. So yes, I do, I love them.

    @MrsPanda99:  His friends are my friends. We have very few my friends and his friends. Those are mostly people from school or work when we were long distance. He knows all of my friends from before we met and he doesn’t have any from before we met, so all of our friends are pretty much mutual.

    Some of them I like especially his friends from adulthood, some of them I think are really trashy and small town minded.

    One of his female friends from his childhood used the n-word in front of me the first time I met her, and it took everything in my power not to go absolutely batshit nuts on her.  I told him that I was willing to let it go that one time because I didn’t want a reputation as his ‘psycho girlfriend’ but the next time I ever heard that word from any one of his friends I’d claw their eyeballs out consequences be damned.

    Most of Fiance and I’s friends are mutual. We met because his best friend (also a long term friend of mine) was my best friend’s SO haha, and actually it was *me* that had introduced *them*

    We’ve always had the same group of friends. We were friends for years before we became a couple (no secrets to dig up!). So yeah I like his friends because they’re my friends too.

    @MrsPanda99:  I voted “they’re OK.” I like some of my SO’s friends, and really like the wife of one of his friends. Some of his friends are a little arrogant and weird, but I mostly like them when they are being pleasant. I wouldn’t choose them as my friends on my own, though– they are just not the sort of people I am normally close friends with.

    I do. I think I’m pretty lucky in the fact that he doesn’t take anyone’s opinion too seriously… except for mine. So I am not competing with his friends on big decisions, like I was in my last relationship. He’s introverted like me, and doesn’t see his friends too often. He isn’t the type to act dumb and drunk… he’s over 40 and I am not sure he did even in his 20s haha. It’s so nice not to have to worry about what dumb shit his friends are telling him to do.

    Most of his friends are also in their 40s, and married with kids. I struggle to find stuff in common with some of them, but we don’t see most of his friends together, and when we do it’s once or twice a year. I am getting to know his BFF of like 30 years and his wife better, and I like them a lot. We’re going on a trip with them next month so should be fun.

    @MrsPanda99:  In past relationships I mostly didn’t like my boyfriends’ friends. Then again, I suppose that’s because I was dating self-centered assholes who acted like they were still in high school and had friends who were just like them. 

    My SO came with the awesome added bonus of several mature, responsible wonderfully kind men who are married to awesome, funny, generous women. All the couples are throughly in love with each other. They are supportive and proud of their partners and just generally a pleasure to be around. I LOVE them. I like them better than most of my friends, save my two besties & their husbands. I actuallly want to move to SO’s hometown so we can spend more time with his friends, even though none of mine live there. They are amazing and I’m so excited I get to see them this weekend!!
