Okay, so imagine your BFF starts dating a new dude that she can’t stop talking about. She’s dying for you to meet him, and you’re pretty excited to get to know the guy that she likes so much. You guys all hang out, and it only takes you a few hours to realize that you kind of… hate his guts. What the heck are you supposed to do now?
It’s one thing to hate your friend’s BF because he treats her badly. But it’s another thing when you hate him because he just isn’t the type of person you’d normally call a friend… and that makes things super awkward. How are you supposed to deal? The editors of Gurl all think different things, but we really want to know what you would do in this situation. Check out what we have to say and then tell us what you think.
Julie Says: It’s None Of Your Business
Worse things have happened than an awesome girl dating a total lame-o. As long as this boo isn’t putting your girl in emotional or physical danger, their relationship really isn’t your business. So what if this guy only talks about his gluten allergy? Or this chick spends more time napping than awake? Your friend is happy! Just focus on your friend’s happiness and don’t let something temporary like a lame fling ruin the great friendship you and your girlfriend have.
Jessica Says: Say Something Once, But That’s It
If my best friend asks me what I think of her ridiculously lame BF, I’m going to have to be a little honest with her. But if I just dislike him because of my own personal preferences, then I’ll only say something once and then let it go. If she’s really happy with him, then it doesn’t matter what I think… but at the same time, I don’t want her to feel like me and him are going to become BFFs too. She deserves to know the truth, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to shove it in her face all the time or avoid him completely.
Melanie Says: Feel Free To Avoid Him
When my friends date losers, I just avoid hanging out with them. I’ll still hang out with my friends, of course—but I try to plan “girl time” instead of couple time. That way I’m not tempted to say something mean about him or ruin her fun. It’s her business who she wants to date, but that doesn’t mean I have to spend time with him, too!
