It isn’t only women that their friends destroy their relationship, men could also have a big influence on each other’s relationship, and if care isn’t taken, they could hurt your relationship without knowing.
Friends are an important part of our lives, but when it comes to relationship, a man too ought to be careful of the kind of friends he keep.
These are some of those friends every man should be wary of.
1. THE ONE WHO FEELS YOUR WOMAN ISN’T GOOD ENOUGH
If your lady is good enough for you, then she’s good enough for you. If you have a friend that keeps bothering you about your lady and telling you that she isn’t good enough, you need to be careful. If you don’t stop your friend from saying that to you, you would one day be forced into thinking that she isn’t good enough for you — even when she means the world to you.
A friend who can’t understand that you both love and value each other isn’t good for your relationship.
2. THE BAD ADVISOR
Some friends have dozens of bad advice up their sleeves, and they are ready to bring them out the instant you show any interest. You know your friends, and you know the ones who would always give a terrible advice that would be disguised as good advice. Don’t pay heed to their advice, or your relationship might just suffer.
3. THE ONE WHO WANTS YOU TO CHEAT
If you have a good relationship going, then why cheat? Any friend who encourages you to cheat isn’t helpful as far as your relationship is concerned.
4. THE TYPE WHO TRIES TO INFLUENCE YOU WITH MULTIPLE WOMEN
There are some men who have the habit of womanizing, and they would also need company. If you have a good woman in your life, and all your friend wants you to do is keep multiple women, you ought to be careful of such friendships, or you might end up being influenced.
5. THE ONES WITH BAD SOCIAL HABITS
The ones who love alcohol to stupor, the ones who love clubbing and partying like their lives depended on it, the ones who take hard drugs and have other habits that aren’t healthy for your relationship are friends you should be wary of. Let them do their thing, and you do yours, or you might begin to have countless problems with your woman and your relationship might suffer.
6. THE ONES WHO WANT ALL YOUR TIME
There are some friends who want all your time, even when they know that you are in a relationship. This could create friction between you and your lady; women hate such friends who would make them fight for your attention.
Your friends might not do this on purpose, but you should be able to draw the line. If you don’t, your relationship would be on the receiving end.
7. THE TYPE WHO DOESN’T RESPECT BOUNDARIES
There are friends who don’t respect boundaries; they don’t seem to care whether you are in a relationship or you’re married — they just seem to care less about privacy; they could invade your privacy at any time and indulge themselves in whatever they shouldn’t.
Friends like these could cause problems between you and your partner.
8. THE TYPE WHO DOESN’T RESPECT YOUR WOMAN
If your pal, your friend or your buddy doesn’t respect the woman in your life, then that friend doesn’t respect you as well. Even if he doesn’t like who you are dating or married to, that shouldn’t make him treat her with disrespect or disregard. Friends like these should be kept far away from your relationship.
Friends might be important, but they could also harm your relationship if you aren’t careful.
