This might be one of the most common relationship problems that exists within otherwise highly functioning happy couples: the male partner who doesn’t want to hang out with his partner’s friends. He isn’t necessarily rude about it (that could be grounds for a breakup) but he certainly doesn’t make an effort, either. If this sounds familiar to you, then you probably dread every time you get an invitation from your friends, that’s extended to you and your boo. You approach the conversation as if you have to break devastating medical news to him, but really, you just need to say, “Hey um…my friends invited us to dinner on Friday night.” It’s pretty normal that men aren’t as social as women, and for men to fall into the pattern of wanting just to hang with their girlfriends, and their own friends. But they have to learn that that just won’t do. Here’s how to get your man to hang with your friends more.
