Your girlfriend‘s friends are going to be a part of her life, period. Typically, there will be four kinds of friends your girlfriend has, and knowing how to deal with each of them will be particularly important. These four friends in particular, above all others, will have you constantly on their radar. Dealing with them effectively is going to be a must if you want to develop a lasting relationship with your lady.
The best friend.
Also known as her best friend forever, or “BFF,” this particular friend is the most important of all her friends. It is imperative that you get this particular friend on your side. He or she will be the one your girlfriend turns to for everything. The best friend is the sounding board, so this friend has to see that you have your lady’s best interests at heart. This friend also needs to know that you’ll take care of your girlfriend. You don’t have to be a push over or a punk, but you need to show the best friend, without a doubt, exactly how cool you are. That coolness should extend to the best friend as well. Your girlfriend can brag about you all day, but it means nothing if her friend doesn’t see it. Establishing a friendship with the best friend is the best way to have that friend cosign for you during any “iffy” times in your relationship.
The jealous friend.
Yes, all women in relationships have a bitter friend that isn’t in a relationship herself. How do you handle this friend? Simple. Go out of your way to be nice to her. When this chick does little underhanded things to you, and she will if she’s jealous, just roll with it. Make it a point to kill her with kindness. If she’s jealous because she doesn’t have a guy, enlist one of your friends to pay attention to her. But, always, always, always be nice to her. Worst case scenario, your girl will eventually pick up on her friend’s negativity and you’ll come out smelling like roses because you’ve been nice the entire time.
