When your friend is dating a loser
When a close friend is dating someone you don’t like, what do you do?The answer is easy: you step in and do whatever it takes to break them up. Okay, we know that answer won’t win the million-dollar prize.“She spent all of her time with him, and I felt like I was invisible.The worst part was that I was friendly to him, but he wasn’t friendly to me, so I was very uncomfortable around both of them.The truth is, when it comes to dating and relating, there really are very few black and white answers.
“I thought she deserved better.” Gradually he changed, and the relationship grew in a positive direction. Often a Christian who is dating a non-believer will be dragged down by the relationship.Often my friend will see qualities in this person that I don’t see.I try to see the positive characteristics and minimize the negative.Not only did my best friend disappear, but I thought her boyfriend didn’t like me.
Outwardly I was happy for her, but inwardly I was miserable.” If your best friend is dating, and you’re not, is jealousy an issue?
Shortly thereafter, she broke up with her boyfriend.
