Where There's Smoke, There's Fire
My friends hated him, my family didn’t like him, but I thought I loved him. I stopped hanging out with my friends and spent the majority of my time with this jerk. I started to like him because he was bold and never held back from what he wanted to say. When he walked into a room he was the loudest one and for some reason that intrigued me. One night we were out with my friends and after a couple of drinks things got intense. My best friend, my boyfriend and I were talking at a bar table, talking about life and our personal issues. My best friend has always been uncomfortable with her weight, and she made it a point to say that she wanted to get into shape. He then said that she was a “little fat” and thought that was a good idea. Yes, he called my best friend a “little fat”. After the night, I tried to make excuses for him - “he was really drunk” or “he just speaks his mind he doesn’t mean to be rude”. But at the end of the day, this wasn’t a guy that wanted the best for me or even for my friends. He was arrogant, and he told me that my friends were just sensitive and that I shouldn’t hang with people who can’t understand him. Bottom line, your best friends for life should never feel belittled or shot down by your significant other. You need to date someone who gets along with the people who have been by your side since day one.
