  • It would be a plus but not a dealbreaker if they don’t like him.
    My families must like him, though. That has been a dealbreaker in the past.

  • I have only a few close friends whose opinions are very important to me.
    That being said, it would not necessarily change anything as far as who I’m dating.

  • I honestly feel you're S. O. should be more important than any friend you have.

    I mean think about how many times your friends have ignored you in favor of their partners.

    It's funny how all my friends stopped talking to me when they got married and barely call and such yet when I got a partner all of a sudden I'm the bad friend for hanging up to talk to my S. O.

  • It'd be nice as I like having friends over and like everyone to enjoy their time together. I try not to be around extremely judgmental people.
    As I get older these issues don't seem to come up at all like when I was a teen.

  • I voted not at all. I have loyal and supportive friends but I don't hang out very often because I want to save money. I am not going to end a good relationship for somebody I see less than 20 hours a month.

  • Frankly your friends may see something that your clouded-by-love eyes don't. If all your friends are saying something is not right you had better stop, listen, and look for any red flags you may have missed. There are many times I had listened to my friends instead of thinking I knew it all, and I would be in a better place today if I had.

  • It's pretty important as if they don't like the guy then maybe I'm not seeing the whole picture and I'm too wrapped up in him and the idea of him, although that doesn't mean I'm going to dump him if they don't like him I'll just keep in mind what they've said and continue as I was going

  • Important to an extent because I hangout a lot with my friends. We even go to hotels together. They like to know how he is and stuff. They also like including him in certain plans. So it's nice when both parties get along.

  • Only my best friend who is like a sister to me. If she tells me he seems weird or he was rude to her or any red flags. I would keep an eye out and eventually dump if he doesn't prove me wrong

    • Also guy friends (who have their own relationships) are also protective as they know how guys think too.

What Guys Said 27

  • Irrelevant.
    However, never give up your friends for any woman. EVER. You need your guy friends for guy stuff.
    Same for girls, they need their girlfriends for girlie stuff. Don't try to make your boyfriend into your girlfriend - it just doesn't work that way.

  • Extremely important. Not just because I want them to be able to hang out together and do exist, but because eventually that turns into her more than likely getting pissy when I hang out with them or text them, and them dogging me for dating her, and it’s just not a good situation to be in. Besides, my friends have talked me out of some pretty bad decisions, and I take heir judgement into account.

  • Sorta important in my case but mainly because I like to introduce her and hang out all together, and merge her friends with my own and we can form a big group. That said, if my friends don't like her, it's not a deal-breaker. It's just not the ideal scenario for me. It's also hard to imagine such a case since my friend group is very eclectic, people from across the world, and they're not very open-minded types of people.

    • * [...] and [they're] very open-minded types of people.

      It's very difficult for me to imagine a scenario where my friends wouldn't like a girl I dated.

    • She'd have to be very two-faced, I imagine, like so nice to me and so rude to them at the same time.

  • How important is it to you that your friends like the person you're dating?
    I mean on the one hand I'd prefer it if they got along but on the other I'm not gonna break up with my SO if my friends don't like her. I guess it depends on why they don't like her.

    My friends did warm me about this one girl I was dating. In my defense I didn't know she was a Russian spy.

  • it's nice and can be important. it means that you can better intersect different aspects of your world. it means that when you go out socially it is possible to have friends and your partner all together. the friends can be a support system if need be and better since they may know the guy somewhat and vice versa

  • Ha! Did my friends care about my opinion of their gf? The best was the friend who announced he was getting married to someone we never met. Same guy later got butt hurt because I was simply in a relationship without letting him know. I’m done with one sided friendships/relationships. F em

  • would be nice if they do, cause well, it would be weird to be around your friends and they don´t like the person you spend most of your time with. Plus, your friends have other perspective on your significant other, they are not "blind" by the halo that you might have, as you might be sexually and or in love with this peron, they may see things more clear, or things you don´t see.

  • you are dating her and not your friends, that doesn't mean you have to date a person they all hate, coz when they all hate a person, you might also hate them coz tht person might have done something bad to you all otherwise all of them won't hate her.
    otherwise if they like or not , its your choice, but it will be a good thing if she gets along waith your friends too becoz you could avoid the awkward situations.
    hope this helps you out, wishing you all the best :)

  • It can be very important. Friends can often see things in the person you are dating that you can't see and they are often right. If I had have listened to friends I wouldn't have ended up with a cheating wife. They saw the future, I didn't. What they say might hurt but you should listen and take notice.

    • im not concerned over what people say about me. i only got into this game looking for a proper knock and a few quid

  • Not super important, as long as there isn't a problem between them. I don't have any good friends, but I'm around them a lot so I'd like things to not get any worse because of who I'm with.

  • I think it matters. Its not a deciding factor. But generally friends or your SO would be people you share interests and views/morals with. For them not to get along would seem odd to me, ring some alarm bells.
    Friends know you. They look out for your best intetests. For them not to like someone, and to actively voice it, there must be something. The majority of my friends i've known over a decade. They've helped through my darkest days. I'd trust their judgement and value their opinions, even if i didn't necassarily agree with it

  • Unless there's a real reason to warn your friend about their partner there's almost no justifiable reason to start something by telling your friend you don't like their partner. It's entirely selfish doing that. If what you have to say doesn't have your friends best interest in mind, then it's just not worth it.

    In that same vein that's how I feel about my friends in context to my partner. Unless there's a massive blindspot I need to be made aware of with my girl then I don't want to hear shit from my friends. Their opinion on who I date matters little, but them getting along does matter.

    • we become in part who we surround ourselves with kid

    • @wootamandawoot41

      Well, you can have your opinion.

      However, I don't believe that. We always have a choice, we can choose to either become a part of whom we surround with, do what everyone else is doing let the thinking of others influence us or we can choose to do what we want to do and live our life by our thinking.

      Just saying.

    • you're free to your opinion lad. fair play to ya. some buzz to not give me a shout

  • It's pretty important that they at least get along. Otherwise you end up living this bizarre divided life. Been there, done that. Never again.
