I mean "not good enough" as in from a commodified perspective. Based on an evaluation of superficial traits, your friends think your significant other is not good enough for you and therefore they don't approve.
I would continue dating him, but I would also hear my friends out as well. I'm not very experienced in relationships and shouldn't be naive to experienced peoples' experiences and advice, but I wouldn't oblige myself to take the advice necessarily. The guy himself and our relationship itself will have the biggest impact in my decision.
Hit no, meant to hit yes. I think that if they did not approve I would listen to there reasons. Sometimes we are blind to the faults of our significant others (I've seen this happen many times, if I was listened to much suffering could have been avoided so I would want the same courtesy) However if it was only a superficial reason (She is a "7" and you can easily get a "8" lets say) then no I don't think thats a valid reason to break up with someone especially since a person is the sum total of there traits. A 10 who is a horrible person, is still going to be a horrible person. As such I would not want to be with them. So yes I would stay with them if it was merely superficial complaints.
I would continue dating him, but take into consideration what my friends were saying because I trust them, and every single time they've had concerns they've been right. However, ultimately it's my choice and I wouldn't be with them in the first place if they were shit heads.
Just because your so called friends think they know whats best for you doesn't mean it is or they do nine times out of ten they don't know a damn thing that's best for you and are only looking to make you miserable because theyre jealous or at least that's how it is with me and this one so called friend I have
For superficial reasons, heck yes. I love my friends, but they have stupid ideas of what's "good enough" as far as looks go. I listened to them once, in high school, and I really regret it now because, maybe the guy I liked wasn't the most handsome, but he was awesome and I missed my chance. :(
If you mean by something like money then it actually does since if a person has a lifestyle with a lot of money and they are dating someone broke then the richer person will pay for everything which will cause a bunch of tension in the relationship. Power balence and crap
