And Your Friend Thinks What??

The most valuable lesson my sister taught me in high school which still remains in my head, “if you hold your hand up and have that many “true” friends in your life at the same time, who truly have your best interest at heart, you are a wealthy individual”.  We all have our dating stories and go through relationship ups/downs, and perhaps even turn to our friends for some dating guidance.  [Disclosure: I am a very optimistic Disney fairy tale believing individual].  That being said, I do believe it is important to be cautious with the advice you are given by your other single friends.  First off, they are single.  Case in point.  Secondly, no one wants to be the last person standing.  For example, if my hypothetical boyfriend’s single guy friend no longer had a playmate for his weekend steak dinners and bar festivities, is he really going to be the person advocating the best outcome for the relationship?  He misses his wingman and doesn’t want to be left standing.  The expression misery loves company came from somewhere.  I’m not saying this is always the case.  And in fact, regardless, the couple in the relationship should be strong enough to do what is best for them.  Just sometimes, outside persuasion, especially from your single wingman, may not be the best advice to get you to where you ultimately want to be.  Just sayin…
