If you ever want to get great insight into the person you are dating, you have to see them in their “natural habitat” – and no I’m not referring to in the wilderness. I’m mean in their most relaxed environment, surrounded by friends and family. People who have known them the longest.
A friend of mine accompanied his girlfriend of 3 months to a holiday function this weekend. The young lady he is dating was surrounded by her sorority sisters. He was “horrified by the vapidness” that was her inner circle. I think he was a little too critical, but he feels that the whole “birds of a feather flock together” thing is valid.
When I asked him if his girlfriend was “vapid and shallow” before he met her friends, he said no. However, he noticed a personality shift. According to him, she was acting like a different person and now he wonders which personality is she actually closest to – the one when they are together. Or the one he saw this weekend.
Do you behave differently when you are with your significant other? When you get around your family or friends, do you think you have a different side of your personality on display?
What would you if the person you were dating had a side to their personality that didn’t sit well with you? Would it matter if they are only that way around certain individuals?
