It can be convenient to date a man with whom you have lots of common friends. In fact, the very fact that you have common friends means you must share common values. You appreciate the same traits in those whom you keep close to you, so that should only be a good thing when it comes to how you handle romantic relationships. But, having a shared social circle doesn’t guarantee it’s a match made in heaven. Every person in that friend group has various facets to their personalities, and you and your partner, respectively, may appeal to different sides of the same friend. In other words, you could be total opposites, yet share common friends. Whatever the reason your relationship unravels, while it’s very easy having common friends while you’re together, breakups are even more difficult than usual when you run in the same circle of close companions. Here is what it’s like breaking up with a man with whom you share plenty of close friends.



Invitations wane leading up to it

During those final months when you’re fighting constantly, and everyone can see you’re clearly going to break up, social invitations decrease significantly. Everyone knows you two are just going to bicker the entire night, and they don’t want you ruining their good time.
