How to bring it up
Here’s the good news about men: they shoot each other straight. They don’t find nice ways to call each other out, like women do. They want to get the problem out in the air, tell each other what’s up, and move forward. So talk to your guy just like that. Sorry but, you’re going to have to speak his language and just say, “Babe. Your friend has been doing too much lately.” Trust me: it’s the same way he’ll word it to his friend when he brings it up. And he’s not uncomfortable about it.
