your man's friends

love em? or hate em?

for the most part, boyfriend has really, really great friends. i trust them. i like them. i love their gf's and/or wives. his group of friends are solid. and i completely enjoy having them around, or going out with them. (except for johnny and katie who moved to LA and abandoned us) i've always felt really blessed that i love his friends so much.

but there is always that one. that one guy you just don't fully trust. the one guy who makes you cringe a little when your man is going out on the town with him. and you cringe because you know him. he's jaded. he's bitter. and he talks crap about relationships way too much. the typical "women are objects, who can i hook up with tonight," type of guy. you know deep down it's all a cover because all he wants is a good relationship like the rest of us (even if he won't admit it). but for now, he plays the game. which on any typical day, is perfectly fine. but on this day, he wants your man out with him. and that's when the cringes start to creep in. you know it's not going to be a "your relationship rocks" type of evening. it's going to be something vastly different.

i know i'm not the only one who has to deal with this. so tell me if your man has uber perfect friends all the way around, or tell me about the one that isn't so great...

All of the friends that Frank has now are great. They are either married or respect the hell out of our relationship. In fact the two that are single were both in our wedding, one was his best man. I've been lucky.

I don't have any friends "of my own" up here in Nor Cal yet, sadly, so this isn't something Trish has had to worry about lately.

I totally agree. There is ALWAYS that one guy... For me, its my bf's friend Brian. He has a girlfriend, but is always cheating and on the prowl for new meat. I don't want my bf getting that kind of attitude, so I always try and schedule activities with his other friends, so that he'll be too busy to go out with Brian

All of Chris's friends are great. I especially love Jeff. :) (By the way, he and his wife are having their first baby, a girl, in July.)

I think you're right; everybody knows 'that one guy.' Unfortunately, my That One Guy is related to my husband - it's his cousin. But! That particular cousin moved away to Hawaii a few months back, so - problem solved.
But I totally see where you're coming from.

matts friend are for the most part married. he has that ONE friend who is not married that is going with us to costa rica and he's demanding "man hours" for this trip. i do believe i am gonna blog about this when the trip gets closer cuz it irks me SO MUCH that there even HAS to be man hours on a mostly couples trip. the closer the trip gets the more i get mad. he's that ONE friend that i dont totally trust. cuz he's single and has always been single and demands man hours. wtf is that?

Jason has some druggie friends, but he almost never sees them anymore--thank goodness. The rest are fine.

Oh, he does have one friend who has been cheating a lot lately, and he wants to go out drinking all of the time. Jason always wants me to come meet him out though, so I am not worried about Jason doing those things. I don't have a huge problem with the guy, but I do find his behavior annoying at times (as does Jason-lol).
