We all know that one girl that leaves her friends as soon as she gets into a relationship, don’t be that girl. You need to be able to find a balance between your relationship and your friendships because they are all important. You can’t just have one significant person in your life, because once they are no longer there, who will you turn to?
If your boyfriend doesn’t like your friends, and there is no valid reason, then you shouldn’t drop them you should drop him. If your friends have been loyal to you and have always had your back, that is rare and hard to find, you shouldn’t give that up for a relationship. It’s important to be able to create a balance between the people in your life.
Here are 8 Reasons You Should Never Let Your Boyfriend Get in the Way of Your Relationship with Your Friends:
Most relationships aren’t going to last
Let’s be honest, you probably won’t marry this man. Is it really worth losing friendships over? If you think it is, that friendship was probably never important to you anyways. If you are willing to lose your friend over a boy, you should probably re-evaluate your priorities.
Your friends have your back when you fight
If you run to your friends every time you and you boyfriend fight, and that’s all you go to them for, you are going to eventually lose them. You can’t keep going back to a shitty guy and expect your friends to not get sick of it. They have your back for a reason, you need to put them at the same level as your boyfriend.
Your life can’t revolve around your boyfriend
You can make your boyfriend the biggest part of your life. If you were to break up, you need to be able to have other areas of your life that can positively lift you up, your friends contribute to this heavily.
You need to be able to stand up for yourself
If your boyfriend is making you choose between your friends and him, you need to think about why this is. You need to put your foot down and let them both know they are in your life to stay, they need to figure out a way to get along.
No one likes that girl that doesn’t go anywhere without her boyfriend
Seriously, don’t be that girl. If you become that girl then you boyfriend is going to get in the way of your friendships. No one wants to hang out with that girl that always has her boyfriend tagging along.
They’ve probably known you longer than your boyfriend
If you have had life-long friends that are good, you shouldn’t be ruining your friendships for a relationship. This is an important reason why you shouldn’t let your relationship get in the way of your friendships, who’s going to be there for you in the end?
They love you
Although your boyfriend might love you, it doesn’t replace the love your friends give you. You shouldn’t just throw away that love because you found a romantic kind of love.
A balance between friends and boyfriend are important
It’s important to different kind of relationships in your life. When you have a lot of positive relationships in your life, you are a better person overall. Don’t give up your friendship for one relationship.
