It has been a long time since I've struggled with this, but for some reason, an old memory popped back up into my head and it inspired me to ask this question. So, hypothetical: you just get into a new relationship, and right from the get go, your best friend seems to absolutely hate your boyfriend/girlfriend for no other reason than he/she is giving you attention and they are afraid that you're going to forget about them. If you ever make plans to do anything with this boyfriend/girlfriend, your best friend immediately gets moody and irritated. They act dismissive or even blatantly rude if you ever bring up your lover, and even go as far as to bash your lover in front of you, even if they have NEVER done wrong to them.
How would you handle a friend who acted like this?
I would tell my friend that I have a simple rule: if I am ever in a situation where someone is trying to force me to choose between them and another person, I will always choose the other person. If I submit to the will of another person, I am giving up control of my life, and that is something that I will never do. . . and it is something that a good friend would never cause to happen.
i would be like that's there problem not mine get over it but i don't think most dude really give 2 shits about this kinda thing unless the girl is toxic B but you can always try and make them get along do things together maybe help them bond so you can all hangout i think its important for your SO to get along with your buds i would want mine 2 its important 2 me
I would hope my best friend would be happy for me! If this is not the case, I would definitely sit down and talk to them, also make them feel included, not like a 3rd wheel but include both of them in certain events etc. If that didn't work, I would just try to divide my time evenly enough but let them know that I will be talking about my s/o because they're an important person in my life xx
I would stop talking to them!
