Should You Listen To What Your Friends Think Of Your Relationship

A friend may say the jacket you are wearing is too bright or has too much embellishment because she has an understated classic style. Your friends may think you look great in those jeans but if you aren't happy wearing them, they just aren't going to work for you. Okay, so you think those two sentences should be in an article about clothing or personal style. No, I mean them to be here, read on.

There can be advantages in listening to your friends' opinions, although in the end it's up to you. You have your own personality and are attracted to certain people and not others. You have a right to like a guy even if your friends think he is either boring, too loud, too young or too old. I mean, you are the one in the relationship with this guy. They don't know how it is when the two of you are alone together and how he makes you feel.

Reasons to listen to your friends
It may be worth considering what your friends think because -
When you are in love, especially during the early stage, a person can be a little crazy and not see things clearly Science Shows Love Does Make You Crazy
Your guy may have said things either directly to your friends or their boyfriends/husbands he hasn't said to you.
Your friends might know things about your guy you really should know, even if you don't want to hear them.
Your guy could be manipulating you without you realising it.
A true friend has your best interests at heart.

Reasons to ignore what your friends think
You need to make up your own mind about whether a guy is right for you or not because -
Everyone is different and one woman's 'ideal' mate won't suit someone else.
You will have some different interests, values and ways of looking at life from your friends.
A friend's opinion could be swayed by jealousy, her insecurity or her own negative experiences.
Perhaps you need to trust your own judgement and not believe everything others say.
A friend could be 'wrong' in the way she 'judges' your relationship.
You are the one in the relationship.

It is certainly worth taking notice of advice given by friends. They may be able to see things you can't. True friends are very important and should be valued even if you are deeply, madly in love with your man. Remember to make time for your female friends. However, in the end it is up to you to make the decision about whether a romantic relationship is working for you or not. (Also, is the friendship with your female friend/s supportive and in your best interests?)
