Best Friend Issues

How many of us have been in a situation where the best friend of the love of our lives and us don’t really get along?

Surprisingly, if I were to base it on the amount of letters submitted to Aunt Agony-type of columns online and on print, such cases is a common issue, or problem, depending on how you look at it.

There are lots of reasons why such disagreements arise; it could be jealousy or plain incompatibility between the boyfriend and the girlfriend’s best friends. The point is, however, it is the very person we both love that is caught in the middle.

Normally, the guys are better at handling such issues; it is easier for us to allow our mates to be happy with their choices. The girls, on the other hand, tend to use the ‘best friends are forever, boyfriends come and go’ card.

I am not sexist nor am I trying to be one with this entry but the fact remains, guys just don’t use the emotional blackmail stuff like “who was there for you when that loser ex-bf of yours hurt you?”.

Don’t get me wrong, if the guy is a loser and he doesn’t get on with the best friend, then by all means kick his sorry ass out but when the guy is serious with the girl but doesn’t get along with the best friend, I just think that, in this case, the best friend needs to understand that not all guys are losers and that there are guys out there who truly love their best friends.

Honestly, I am in the same boat as all of those who are not bosom buddies with the best friend. While our relationship is civil, the fact remains that she and I are not going to be hanging out together anytime soon. Sad but true.

The only common thing that we have really is that we both care for and love the same person. And this love allows us to at least pretend that we’re cool, and something which I am ok with because I know how important she is to the woman I’m in-love with.

And isn't love all about sacrifices?
