How You Know Your Friends Don’t Like Your Man
If you’re lucky, you have no-nonsense, tell it like it is girlfriends who won’t hesitate to tell you to get rid of him if they think a guy is no good for you. But, if you’re not lucky, you may just have to pick up on these cues:
Invite you to totally single scenes:
Your girlfriends treat you like you’re still single by inviting you to girls’ weekends in Las Vegas constantly, notorious pick-up bars, even official single’s events like speed dating.
Make passive aggressive comments:
They insult him, or your relationship, indirectly by saying something like “doesn’t he not want kids? And you do, right?” or “he’s dated quite a few women in your office, right?” They aren’t directly stating “it’s a problem” but, they are obviously pointing out a problem.
Point out ways you’re incompatible:
Similar to the above point, but this time they will pretend to be cute about it. They will say “Oh, it’s so funny how you’re so social and he is such a hermit” or “it’s cute how you’re so ambitious and he seems so content just doing what he does…”
They might just stop asking you to hang out because a) they don’t want you to bring your boyfriend and/or b) they don’t want to hear about him because they just can’t fake enthusiasm anymore.
Ask for “girls nights” a lot:
If they don’t stop calling, they’re only going to call for girl’s nights. Suddenly, every time they call they are in the mood for a night with “just the girls.” Believe me, they are still getting together with their friends and boyfriends, they just aren’t inviting you on those nights.
Remind you of great exes:
They might find any and every excuse to remind you of a wonderful guy you used to date, and something incredible he did. They’ll see a poster for Hawaii and ask “Didn’t your ex take you there to that incredible resort?” or see an ad for a children’s hospital and say “wasn’t your ex some incredible doctor?”
Try to set you up:
They might invite you out to dinner, not invite your boyfriend and when you arrive you realize that your friend’s boyfriend is there and one of his male friends. It can’t get more obvious than this.
