So you don't like your guy friend's new GF


You and your guy friend have been buds forever, but now he’s got a new girl in his life and you’re not loving it. It might seem weird to not like her, but it’s actually pretty normal to feel a bit odd about it. Don’t worry, we’ve got tips on how to get you over it.

There are a bunch of reasons why you might not like your BGF’s GF—and it doesn’t have to be the rom-com trope of unrequited romance. Maybe you’re feeling a bit jealous because he’s been ditching you to hang out with her, or maybe you simply don’t like the girl. However, it wouldn't be so crazy if, after being close for so long, developed some feelings for him.

Whatever the reason is, now you know why you don’t like her... but where do you go from here? It’s time to realize that no matter what or why, even if you don’t like her your friend obviously does. Unless you are genuinely, 100 percent sure that this girl is no good for him, buckle down and be nice. If you do think she’ll hurt him, then it's time to sit him down, and have a serious convo, but otherwise it's time to just let it go.

Try putting all your feelings aside and looking at this girl sans judgement. If your guy friend likes her, and you trust his judgment, then chances are she’s a good person. Suggest hanging out with just her to get to know her better. Worst case scenario is that you guys won’t click, but hopefully you’ll end up with a great new friend.
