6 Things To Do When Your Friend Is Dating Someone You Don’t Like

June 8, 2021

When your friend is dating someone you don’t like, here are six things that you should definitely do.

1) Keep your mouth shut

They will never listen to anything you have to say. People in love usually are unable to process information concerning their relationship because they have lost all their five senses. If you keep talking, you will land yourself in trouble.

2) Prepare to be an enemy of progress

Immediately you declare your dislike for their partner, you have become enemy number one. They will definitely bad-mouth you to their other friends and well-wishers, so prepare to be called a lot of bad names to your front, and behind your back.

3) Practice your mugshot

Deep down, your friend knows there is a reason you do not like this person. So, they keep coming to you with all the negative things their partner does, because they know you will be honest about the situation. With access to all this first hand information others do not have, murder might cross your mind a few times. That’s why you need to be prepared. Incase you give into your desires and kill someone.

4) Social distance

Your friend might want to constantly find reasons for you and their partner to spend time together, but you need to social distance, They are doing this because they think once you and their partner spend time together, both of you would bond. Don’t give into it. Stay away.

5) Be there for them

They will complain over and over again, but you love them more than you hate their partner, so you just have to be a shoulder for them to cry on.

6) Mute them on socials

They will make a lot of love related posts even after coming to complain about them to you. Mute them so you can preserve your peace of mind.
