If she does hint at trouble in the relationship, put the focus on how she is feeling, rather than attacking her boyfriend.
If you have solid evidence of manipulative actions on the part of her boyfriend, decide whether to share that information with her.
A douche will leave you stranded on your birthday, flirt with people in front of you, doesn't want to be in a relationship but doesn't want you to move on, puts you down in public, abandons you when you need him most, and feeds off your heart. Like the act of douching, a douche is someone who creates more bacteria, irritation, inflammation, and infection than it's worth.
He will exploit your weakness of loving him, and because you keep coming back for more, he never has to change. One big challenge in this situation is accepting that your friend is not an innocent in this equation.
Your friend has been dating her boyfriend for almost a year, but the sight of him makes you cringe.
Your formerly bubbly, charismatic friend has become tense, anxious and uptight and she's trying to please the ever-changing needs of a controlling, manipulative man.
The truth hurts, but then again so does seeing your friend go down the wrong path.
If it’s a new relationship, you can be sure that they’re going to be hanging out together all the time.We can’t go anywhere without someone asking us, “How can I tell my friend-daughter-sister-niece-cousin she is dating the wrong guy?”We recently received an email from a woman who was panicked about her sister’s upcoming wedding. She’s engaged to a total loser and is about to make the biggest mistake of her life. She cooks, she cleans, and she pays his bills while he sits around playing video games all day. We are a community of women, and we need to be real and honest with one another.If you come off as overly judgmental, you might lose her forever to the tentacles of her demon lover.Though this person is your best friend, he or she still has an ego to contend with, and no one wants to be seen as emotionally anemic.A woman who is being manipulated by her guy doesn't need someone else telling her what to do.
