Guy invites you to hang out with his friends after only a couple of dates?
Is this a good thing? And why would he do this?
Most Helpful Guy
Unless his friends are criminals or psychopaths or something, it's a GOOD thing.
When a guy does this, it means he's inviting you into his life. He isn't just keeping the relationship between the two of you on the side, separate from everyone else in his life, like you might do with a FWB. Instead, he's including you, and letting you see parts of him that most people don't get to see. He is even exposing himself to potential ridicule and humiliation because families and friends routinely like to do things that embarrass the guy in front of his girl.
Maybe mom brings out baby pictures. Maybe dad brings up the story where he struck out in every at-bat in Little League. Maybe his younger brother tells some other embarrassing story.
The same thing with friends. You're going to hear about every stupid thing he's ever done in front of his friends, and every time he failed, or every girl he ever dated that they hated or thought was ugly.
Hopefully, all of that stuff will be mixed in with a lot of positive moments as well.
The point is: by introducing you to his friends, he is making himself vulnerable and open in front of you. He probably wouldn't do that if he didn't like you, and to some degree trust you.
Why this is a mystery I don't know. It seems very obvious to me. Remember: whatever guys say or do should be taken at FACE VALUE. Guys generally don't talk in code or use hidden meanings like girls do.1
