How To Get Along With Your Boyfriend's Friends
音量
Charismatic, witty, deadly. The flirt will probably be more attractive than your boyfriend and have (industrial strength) charm. WARNING This man is dangerous for your health. He may also be ‘The Test' your boyfriend has set you, to find out whether you're likely to cheat. Previous girlfriends may have failed here, and fallen for his flattery. If you feel yourself succumbing to his charms, stop, think, and start again. Respond pleasantly to his compliments but remember to keep mentioning your boyfriend. To remind you both of where you are and who you're with, ask him about his own life. Chances are he's got a girlfriend and an adorable little baby, for whom he seems to have a strong paternal bond.
This character may present himself to you in various forms. He could be ‘the intellectual' who will want to assess whether you're worthy enough to join his inner circle. He may believe he's excessively intelligent or frighteningly cool, and wrongly assume that you have nothing interesting to say. Impress him with your knowledge of the Middle East peace process or French New Wave cinema. If you can't find any common ground, try to avoid flirting with him or asking whether he likes your new handbag.The one who intimidates you may also be 'the lad'. He's single, and you've taken his wing-man away from him. He may well be your toughest challenge. Give him some attention, and feign enthusiasm for his particular areas of interest. But ultimately give him space to have that special male time with your boyfriend. Of course if he finds you devastatingly attractive, he might hate you even more.
Hello, who's this, and why is she sucking a lemon? The female of the species really can be more deadly than the male. When there is a close, platonic female friend in the group you need to tread extra carefully. She may be outwardly charming, but she will definitely be sassing you out as a threat. She may not want to share her group of boys with other girls, and you may be jealous of this relationship. Try not to be too aloof or over-friendly. Be yourself. Your boyfriend is going out with you for a reason, so why shouldn't you get on well with someone else he likes? If you both give each other a chance you could end up with a really good friend.
In combination, meeting your boyfriend's friends may seem like a daunting prospect. But get them on side and they'll be both new friends and useful allies. Just remember a few golden rules… Don't criticise your boyfriend to his friends, as they'll always be his friends first before yours. Equally don't try and take him away from his friends, particularly with over-dramatic emotional dramas, any kind of hissy fit, or inappropriate displays of affection.
