My buddy Mike is in a relationship with a really nice young lady but he has constantly complained about her friends. His girlfriend is the type that “lives by committee” so in many instances, her she listens to her friend’s advice. This leads to many arguments about sharing too much information with her friends.
I believe this is partly attributed to his girlfriend’s age. She is younger than he is and is not as experienced in relationships. The problem arises when her friends dole out bad advice that not only does not help, it makes it worse.
While I don’t think this is a deal breaker, Mike thinks that it is. He is ready to dump her and cut his losses. Would you consider dumping someone if their friends interfered with your relationship too much?
Have you ever dated someone who let outside people influence your relationship? How did you handle it?
Why do you think people let friends inside the inner workings of their relationships?
Where do you draw the line on what you share with your friends?
