  • Nope, guys don't give a sh*t about what others think about the girl they are interested in usually. It's why we can be more devoted to a woman than a woman to a guy cause women always seek approval about everything they do from their friends and family and sh*t. Not realizing the family and friends don't know what's best for them and only think more about their own opinions and thus a woman loses a chance at a great relationship or ends a good one because of dumbass friends and family.

    Granted not all are like this, but it certainly seems to be a significant number.

  • I have never asked any of my guy friends for approval to date a girl lol. I could honestly care less, at least if I've already deemed her as "girlfriend" material. The only thing that could sway my mind is if my friends swore she was a terrible choice, in which case I would take what they have to say into consideration but ultimately I will make the choice whether to date her or not, not my friends.

  • If I like her, I'll date her, regardless of what others think, unless they REALLY have something dyer to tell me, I'll be my own judge,

  • I'll seek advice sometimes, but I never need anyones approval for dating a girl. It would be nice if everyone liked her, but that's not possible.

  • Someone who carries themselves like a man doesn't seek approval of others (even their friends) in their romantic partners. But since you mentioned "teen guys" specifically, that is possible that someone in their age group would do that.

  • No

    If a friend says no that will lower my self esteem

    If a friend says yes then I have possibly made myself a competitor

  • depends but typically no.

    sometime when too meny parties are involved, espically in HS, there tends to be drama... :/

    but there are times you want some advice or need a buddy to break the ice for the two of you.

  • Your bros might know something about a girl that you don't. It's not like we have to actively seek approval. it's just good to know if they abhor her though.

    • Do you have like a female mustache fetish or something?

      I've got a cousin like that. I can hook you up.

    • No. My friends(the few that I have) are black and most of my associates are too. And we don't have the same taste in women.

  • most of them do yes, but guys who aren't followers make up their own mind instead

  • If I like her, and there is no history between a friend of mine and her, I wouldn't ask for approval. I've never had a girlfriend though.

  • I've never known a guy who's dated me to ask for approval from his friends. And I know the guys that I've dated very well (most were good friends before we dated) so I'm 90% sure that I would know if they asked.

    • How did they get out of the friend zone? am sort of in the same situation =/ be as specific as you'd like.

    • Honestly, I pursued them. I don't really have a "friend zone" so to speak. If I like a guy as a friend, then I will try flirting with him and see if we click. If we do, then we try dating. I had a serious, 7 year relationship that started that way. Sorry if that isn't much help.

  • Most of the younger guys do seek approval from their friends.
