Girls, the minute you announce your relationship to the world, you’ll start getting different reactions from everybody around you. Some of your friends will act like they’re even happier than you about it, some will act quite indifferent, and then there will be a handful of girlfriends who just won’t be able to cover up their jealousy no matter how hard they try.
Now, we’re not saying that this jealousy will necessarily be the result of how amazing your man is or how badly they want to steal him from you. No! It just might be a jealousy they feel from this new person in your life, this person who they fear will become more important than them one day.
But no matter what their reason is, you should be careful of the following types of envious friends if you want a chance at making your relationship work:

The other day, you specifically told all your friends about the amazing date night you and your partner have planned. You told them what you would be wearing, which movie you’d go to watch first and the exact name of the fancy restaurant you’d go to for dinner. And just as you reach the cinema, you find this friend of yours, the one who pretended that she wasn’t even listening, randomly coming in to watch the exact same movie at the exact same time you had planned.
So you meet each other, you see that she’s alone and you politely ask her to join you. She doesn’t take a second to think and happily follows you into the cinema. After that, it’s not even a question of inviting her as she tells you how she’s really excited for dinner afterwards as well. Continue reading to next page
