You can read about me here, peruse the archives here and read popular posts here.The issue is that in his circle of friends I’m unable to point out any single person who is respectful of women, decent, or even faithful to his woman.When that same man has to actually be told to defend his girlfriend against the trash-talking and name-calling, one can only presume he either agrees with them, doesn’t really care about his girlfriend (or at least, not as much as he cares about his own reputation among his friends), or is a coward. Do you really want a boyfriend who agrees with misogynists or doesn’t have the guts to stand up to them? They’d be like having in-laws you can’t stand — ones your partner wants to hang out with all the time.Beyond that, I can’t imagine that these life-long friends he considers family are going to just fade away. In my book, that would be a deal-breaker in itself.I know he really loves me, but I’m tired of it all.I have developed a strong dislike for his friends and it’s straining my relationship.
