  • Ok like I love my friends and they love me so obviously they have my best intentions at heart. They usually tell me if they don't like a guy that I try to get involved with right off the bat, and I know that they know that I obviously actually care about him. They aren't just saying things, because they know I will be upset if they tell me they don't approve of someone that I like. Because of this, I will listen to what they have to say and try to push my feelings aside when dealing with my rational thoughts about my partner. It's very hard, but it's something that needs to be done to avoid heartbreak later.

  • Depends on their reason, I can think of three right now.
    1. They are worried that they'll lose you. In 1956, the Four Aces sang, “Wedding bells are breaking up that old gang of mine,” lamenting the loss of lifelong friendships as we grow to adulthood. The easiest way to change this one is to reassure them that you'll still spend time with them.
    2. They’re afraid she’ll hurt you. Maybe the blinders of love don’t let you see her for who she really is. It could be her reputation, the way she treats you in front of them, or just that feeling that she isn’t good enough for you. Some girls are really sweet with the man they love but treat everyone else with bitterness. A good thing to do is to talk to them about why they are afraid of her hurting you.
    3. They are just don't get along. If your they annoys your other friends, you might just have to keep them apart and lead two separate lives. That’s far from ideal. Talk to your partner and share your concerns. Ask them if they can tone down some of their offensive or annoying habits, so you can enjoy life with all of your loved ones together.

    With any of these, change is inevitable and eventually people drift apart. Best thing to do is to try not to burn bridges with your friends and always try hard to bring the worlds you love together peacefully.

  • If my friends don't like him = I'll be with him
    If my family don't like him = I'll stay with him
    If my relatives don't like him = I'll stay with him 🤗😊😘
    It doesn't matter their opinion when the one who date him is me and I love him 😍😍😍

  • Maybe not, depending on why... I mean, if they tell me he is weird, I will believe them because I’ve seen time after time girls saying “oh, he isn’t that way when we are alone” and each time they got hurt. So... yeah, if they tell me he is weird, I’d believe them...

  • I don't really know because I wouldn't date just for the sake of 'dating' and as they say, love is blind so I don't really know if I would actually break up with the guy just because my friends don't like him
    On the other hand my friends won't say anything to me about him, that I'm damn sure 😂 OfC they would tell me if cheating is involved but other than that they wouldn't say anything just because they dislike the person

  • Yes. My friends and family aren't in the relationship with this guy, I am. I do take their opinions to heart but it's not me, them and the guy in a relationship, it's me and him. It would suck they felt that way but they would either have to get over it or play nice when we come around.

  • I'd talk to my friends to see why they don't like him because sometimes you can be blinded when you're into someone. After talking to them I'd analyse the situation and then decide.

  • It'd depend on why they didn't like my friend. If they had a valid reason, I would reconsider my relationship. If they just didn't trust him or didn't like how he looked, I wouldn't end the relationship.

  • My friends know me and are good judges of character so no I wouldn't I'd break it up. They don't do petty shit like "spending any time not with us = bad" if there were really giant red flags I somehow missed and they pointed them out I'd probably be like "oh shit u right"

    • I may have worded this weird but I would end a relationship if my friends thought something was wrong.

  • I did it once and it was a big mistake. My friends disliked him because they sensed that something was off... and they kept right. I was too blind of love to notice what a jerk he was.
    If six people say that someone is not good for you, he most likely indeed isn't.

  • Depends on the reason why. If they simply don't vibe together (for example my current boyfriend and friends have nothing in common so they find nothing to talk about), I don't mind but if they dont like him because he's a dick then I'd leave.

  • yes I would date him even if my friends and family didn't like him, because it's my life and not theirs. Choosing someone to love and choosing a career, should be based on your own preference and your own likes and dislikes of a person according to your maturity of what you think a relationship entails. It has nothing to do with choosing someone just to please someone else, that's like an arranged marriage stuff.

    • Start singing the Ram Leela song in Hindi which means, "Ram wants leela, leela wants Ram, what work does the world have in their love story, they have a simple rule, bullet for hate, wink for love."

      Or the line from Mashallah song from Tiger- "jalta hai jal jaye pighal jaye zamaana, mein usey aur woh mujhse bas itna fasaana."

      Or the line from Tukur Tukur,
      Duniya jalti hai to jale
      Duniya jalti hai to jale
      Raat bhar zalima ke sang naache balma

      and I am still mentally sane... just in case if anyone wonders

  • Yes, I would, honestly if your friend was your friend they'd still be happy as long as you're happy they may not like them not now or ever but as long as you're happy so should they that's true friendship

  • I wouldn't think much of my friend's opinion unless they saw something like my partner being a mean person, abusing an animal, cheating on... that type of stuff.
    If they just didn't like him, oh well. I would just hang out with them seperately.

  • Oh wait I misread. Woops. I mean that if your friends can't respect the person you love then they should screw off. This is a person that makes you happy, and your friend should be happy for you and support you

    If it turned out that they knew my partner was a murderer that would obviously influence my decision XD

  • Friends are great and can be a comfort in times of need, friends can also be your worst enemy even thought they may have your best interest in mind.

    You can connect with someone that your friends do not like, and that person is the perfect match for you. Only a fool would give up personal happiness, and make themselves miserable to make other happy.

  • I would make my own decision. However, I would take their opinions into account. My friends and I are all very similar people and if they don't like someone, they must have some reason, so I would have to look into it. Maybe they're seeing something that I'm not.

  • Would depend on the reason. Dated a heavy girl that some of my friends at the gym didn't like-because she was heavy. Would make wisecracks. In that instance, I found new friends. But, another time I was dating someone and every friend could name someone that she slept with. So, I ended it. Too embarrassing.
