My friend Victor thinks he would still be with his ex-girlfriend if her friends had not interfered. There were many times when they planted seeds of doubt and made her second guess him. He believes those outside influences contributed to their problems.
This made me think about how some singles like to be single at the same time. When one gets in a relationship, the others may not always be happy for them. Some actively try to sabotage things! Obviously this is not what I call friendship. Is it possible friends are the reason some stay single?
I recall my friend telling me that her boyfriend spent too much time and money at strip clubs. He would say it is just where they all hung out. After she told him that it bothered her, he felt torn about not going with his buddies.
