Ah, friends. They’re the first ones you call when you’re happy and the first ones to come running to your side when something goes wrong. Can you imagine life without your BFFs ? After all, men may come and go, but they stay constant, no matter what. It’s only natural to confide everything in your friend, especially when you’re in a relationship and need someone to help you dissect every text or signal he sends your way. But sometimes, some relationship matters are best left between your SO and you. Here are some of them.
Anything your partner tells you in confidentiality. Things happening in his personal life, workplace crises, or family issues.
No matter how impressive you find the nude pictures he sends you, remember those are for your eyes only!
The same goes for details about your sex life. Gush all you want with your friend, but be careful not to divulge too much since she may not be able to look him in the eye anymore after that.
There are lots of things guys do that make us go aww, but constantly updating a friend about the cute things he said or did for you might just take it too far, and seem like you’re rubbing the relationship in her face.
Your partner’s opinion of your friends. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and your friend doesn’t need to know everything that’s going on in your partner’s mind.
If he’s told you about his insecurities or his weaknesses, chances are, these are things that make him very vulnerable, and though you know your friend would never judge, it’s best to stay mum about them.
Made a plan to catch the latest film or check out a new café with your friends, only to go ahead and do it with your boyfriend instead? Best to avoid telling your friend and earning their wrath in the process.
If your guy is having money issues, or even if it’s something the two of you are facing collectively, keep it between the two of you.
Your partner’s past, be it their previous relationships or things they’ve done or been through. You may have accepted it, but that doesn’t mean your friend will too.
While it’s okay to vent and tell your friends about a fight you had with your boyfriend, telling them about every little fight and argument would make them see just the bad in your SO and bring out their protective side.
Did he gift you something you hate? Don’t go whining to your friends.
Your boyfriend put a lot of effort into the gift, none the less. After all, it’s the thought that counts!
To have trouble getting along with your in-laws is a tale as old as time. But since you can’t do anything about it, it might be better to grin-and-bear-it instead of complaining toy our friends.
Besides, it might hurt your man if he finds out.
The problems he’s going through in his life. Let him decide who to divulge his secrets to.
The amount he earns. He might not be comfortable with everyone knowing this.
