My friends don’t like my boyfriend!
I’m 27 and I’ve been dating my boyfriend for about 4 months. At first, things didn’t go so well and I often would get angry because he’d show up late to things. That’s a pet irritation of mine. Over time, though, I’ve noticed that he’s really the most sweet and gentle guy I’ve met. I’ve started to notice that I’m really happy around him, and he really takes care of me. I had been single for more than three years and it was really hard to think about giving up my independence, but I’ve realised that I don’t have to do that with him.
The only problem is that I’ve been telling my friends whenever anything bad happens between us. I’m up to the stage where I’m not allowed to talk about him because I’ve b****ched about him so much. My friends are like my family to me–I’ve lived on the other side of the world with these girls, we’re so close we could hang out naked and it wouldnt be weird. So I really respect their opinions and I’m worried that they perhaps see something in him that I don’t. Or that they will never like him, and I will drift apart from them.
Despite our initial problems, I do see a future with my boyfriend but I don’t want it to cost my relationship with my friends. I should note that it’s only a couple of my close girl friends that don’t like him. Most of my friends do. But then, it’s only really my close girl friends who I talk about him with.
Please help! I want my friends to see my boyfriend the way I see him. Am I blinded by love or should I ignore them?
