Everyone has a BFF. (Or at least I’d like to think so in my world of sunshine and rainbows.) You do everything with your best friend. You shop. You gossip. You text all throughout the day. They’re your partner in crime. They’re your confidant. They’re your other half. A best friend is a special treasure that anyone should be lucky enough to have. So what happens when one of you gets a boyfriend? Or gets engaged? Or gets married?
It’s a huge adjustment for the still-single BFF. I know first hand how hard it is to balance the boyfriend/friend scale. One person always ends up getting shafted. That is just the way it goes, and the even sadder fact is that it’s usually the BFF. Love conquers all, I guess. Some friends can roll with the punches and be cool with the changes in the friendship, but other friends can be totally buzz kills about it. Instead of being happy and excited for their friend, they’re mean and disinterested and hostile. So what do we do about it?
Who wants to be in a relationship that your BFF doesn’t approve of? What’s the point of being in a relationship if the people you love most aren’t on board? That is just a big bummer. Thankfully, the ladies over at Gurl have you covered. Their advice is spot on, and you’ll soon learn how to deal with a bitter BFF.
