  • 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.

  • Ok, honestly I cannot figure out what the hang up is that girls have about this. Every girl I've ever known when asked to hang out with me and my friends, clams up like I just asked her to jump out of a plane.

    First of all, yes its a good thing. If a guy didn't like you, why would he want his friends to meet you? Clearly he is not embarrassed for them to know he is seeing you.

    Also, its just hanging out and they are his friends. That is what normal people do, they hang out with their friends. For me its always been normal to bring your SO around during group gatherings. I mean, why would you not? Your SO is your friend are they not? So why can't they join in with you and your friends?

    I just can't understand why women act like a guy asking them to hang out with them and their friends is like asking for their hand in marriage. Really, its not a big deal, stop reading so much into things that all you women do.

  • Sure it's a good thing. You'll get to know each other better from contact with mutual friends, and you won't have all the artifical 'date' pressure when you're in a more informal, everyday situation.

  • It means he likes you a lot and wants to integrate you into his social circle. He doesn't think of you as a hookup and wants you to be his girlfriend.

  • its a good thing, he's introducing you to his friends and his friends to you. You will find out more about him from his friends anyways from their stories.

  • Ask how many other females are going to be there? If it's like a couple night out type of thing, then that's cool, he's into you. But if it's just him and two other guys, I wouldn't suggest going. It's an indication of being friend zoned or something else. Just ask a lot of questions.

    • Also guys don't friend zone like this. Guys don't befriend girls one on one with only friendly intentions. So this would never happen where a guy meets you and decides to hang with you because he just wants to be friends. If a guy meets you one on one and asks you to hang out. 9x out of 10 he is interested in you. Guys don't go out of their way like that to make friends with girls.
