So your boyfriend has decided it’s time to introduce you to his friends. You were praying for this day to come but what you didn’t realize was that it comes with a lot of pressure. You have to charm his friends into liking you so that you can all get along. So here are some great ideas to help you along.
Talk to them and find out what they are all about
Think of his friends as your own friends and find out as much as you can about them. What do they like? Where do they like hanging out? What do they like eating? Don’t pretend you agree with them on everything or pretend to like everything they like because they’ll see right through you. Just be yourself around them even when your boyfriend isn’t around.
Show your boyfriend some love
If you throw temper tantrums or treat your man like a child in front of his friends they’ll think you are a bitch. They’ll probably bad mouth you when you are not around. Besides, you never know…your boyfriend might just heed their advice. But if you are nice and respectful to your boyfriend even when his friends are around, they will see why he likes you so much and make you their friend.
Avoid being the clingy, needy girlfriend
Speaking about showing your boyfriend some love, try as much as possible not to portray yourself as the clingy, needy girlfriend. It’s very easy to cross the line between showing your boyfriend some love and attention and suffocating him.
If his friends are around, you don’t have to be all over him. You don’t have to pester him about every text or phone call he receives. Let him be with his friends in peace. If you have any issues with his friends, talk to him about it when the two of you are alone.
