Dating someone your friend likes
When this sort of things happen, it can actually be the most suitable partners these people dislike, as they realise they are about to lose a valued friend.
The best way to avoid this issue is to make time for your existing friends.
As long as you’re happy and your partner is not abusing you or treating you badly, a true friend should be happy for you.
For two years, Landis Wiedner watched a girlfriend settle for what she thought was an "awful" relationship."It always seemed like she was mothering him," Wiedner, 29, recalls.
This is especially true if you’re feeling uncertain and want a second opinion.
Ask them for their reasons, but be ready to hear out their answers without freaking out.
The greatest advantage of online dating, in my opinion, is that it connects you with thousands of people who have absolutely nothing to do with your existing social circle.
This means you’re unbound by your current limitations and can meet people you would never have come across otherwise.
I suggest resisting the temptation to involve other people’s opinions in the mix, until you’ve spent some time with your new partner and had a chance to think about what you actually feel.
Yes, your friends may see some things your happy, love-hormone glasses filter out, but they may also be influenced by their own issues or miss out on qualities your partner has that are not immediately apparent.
