I was watching the movie Something Borrowed for the first time the other day and couldn’t believe a movie starring Kate Hudson could be so ratchet…yet so good. Even though I feel like her and Katherine Heigl star in the same movies over and over, this one had me glued to the screen. It’s about a woman who ends up falling for her best friend’s fiancé even though she was the one who initially hooked them up. To this girl’s credit, the friend was an absolute jerk. Still, I always think it’s awkward when your boo and your bestie had a close friendship that preceded your relationship, or when it seems he has more fun with her than you. These behaviors could make you uncomfortable, and might be a cause for concern, especially if your man and best friend are a little too close for your liking.
1. They have one too many “inside jokes”
I used to hate when people abused that “insider” hashtag on Facebook and Twitter. If the joke is so personal, get the heck off Google Chrome and chuckle it up in person. Now imagine, your boo and your best friend constantly giving each other side-eyes and getting their Def Comedy Jam on while you’re sitting there looking lost like, “What is so damn funny?” If your man cares about you, he won’t repeatedly risk your comfort level at the expense of a good punch line. If you find yourself like Drake outside of the Miami Heat locker room and never in on the joke, there’s a chance that’s not the only thing you’re not in on.
