Hello everyone! You are all becoming the go to crew for dating advice, apparently. I have received a few emails asking for your opinion. So here is a dilemma with which I am happy to say that I have no experience. Weigh in and give your best advice and share your experiences:
One of our readers has been seeing a guy who is pretty close to his boys. They are all like brothers, having grown up on the same block and are basically best friends. One of the friends made a play for her. A real, in your face, no ambiguity at all – kind of play. He sought her out at her gym, struck up a conversation, and basically said some wildly inappropriate things about her body. Then he asked for her phone number.
She thinks that her man has friends that are protective of him and want to test her character. A girlfriend test if you will..to see how she would handle the situation. Obviously she turned him down flat, but she wonders if she should bring it up to her guy.
If it turns out that it was indeed a girlfriend test – sanctioned by her guy, should she be offended? If it is not a test, should she tell her guy about his friend’s behavior? Should you avoid this particular friend or try to address it since they will have to all be around one another?
I am curious, do men test their women like this often? Are there certain situations that men want to know how you will handle to see what kind of woman you are when he is not around?
What would you do if you found out someone you are dating had been conducting little “character tests” on you?
