6 Things to Do When You Don’t Like Your Best Friend’s Boyfriend
It’s a very common situation to be in. Your best friend is dating a guy for whom you somehow develop an instant dislike, but can’t put a finger on the exact reason. Even if you do have a valid reason, you really don’t know how to go about handling this situation. Recently, pop singers Katy Perry and Rihanna had a reported squabble over the latter’s patch up with the former’s ex, singer Chris Brown, because Perry felt he is not right for Rihanna as he had assaulted her before. If you don’t want such a situation and still want to maintain the friendship, browse through these pointers.
1. Talk to her
First and foremost, you ought to have a word with her about her new guy. Don’t act all uncomfortable with them and make your friend ask you the matter. At the same time, don’t start ranting off against her boyfriend as she will retaliate bitterly and accuse you of being jealous. Explain your concerns to her calmly in a frank and mature talk and don’t remove the topic again until and if at all he does something to hurt her.
2. Know him better
Instead of assuming how bad he is, why not take efforts to know him better? As they say, don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Thus, try to get to know him better, talk to him, accompany them when invited and you never know, you could be proved wrong and you both could hit it off well.
3. See his positives
While thinking of him in a negative light, you could be overlooking his positive traits. You should always know both sides of the story before making conclusions. So get to know him well and rationally seek out his attributes.
