Why You Shouldn’t Ditch Your Friends For A Guy

Female friendships are one of the most overlooked must-haves for a healthy relationship.

Have you ever had a girl friend who completely forgot about you as soon as she got into a relationship… until they had their first big fight, that is?

Quality friends stand out from the crowd. They value one another and treat their friendships with the utmost respect, rather than getting jealous and catty when one of them gets a guy. Once you begin attracting quality friendships, you’ll start to soon attract quality men (and potential life partners) as well.

Important quality gal pal time while you’re in a relationship

But how do you know if a man can live up to your expectations? That’s where quality gal pals come in. They help you stay grounded in your values, gain clarity, keep healthy boundaries and perspectives (when love has a way of clouding perspective), and allow you to vent without blowing up at your partner. Not to mention, it’s good to have a shoulder to cry on when going through a breakup.

Worried that these friendships will take away from your time with your man? In fact, it’s the opposite. Having friendships outside the relationship reduces stress and conflict for you as a couple. So how do you keep your female friendships strong during your relationship?

1. Show how important your girl friends are to your man. Make it very clear how important your female friends are to you so he won’t see them as superficial gossip sessions you can do without. When he understands that much of your confidence (that attracted him in the first place) and refreshing healthy perspectives are nurtured by these friends, he will continue reading at YourTango.com

    What would I do without my girl friends? You’re right that they keep us grounded and we REALLY need that when we’re in a relationship!

    I love that quality men like their partner to have girl friends. It’s a tell tale sign when a guy doesn’t want a woman to see her friends. Unless, of course she is going to bars, etc. I have known some women who did that after they got into a relationship. They never have lasting ones because the issue is with THEM.

    Thanks for the post, Kelly!

      I’m glad you have some quality friends, Tiana! What a difference they make. 🙂

      You’re right about women who insist on setting their relationships up for failure by doing things that threaten a relationship. Self-sabotage is big among women with worthiness issues. Usually, they’ve attracted a man with the same issue. That’s how the law of attraction works.

      Thanks for visiting, Tiana!
