Should I pursue a girl that my friends don't really like?
« on: June 07, 2004, 03:30:43 PM »
So this girl likes me (so I hear), and I think I'm starting to fall for her. I might want to pursue something with her, but all my friends think she is annoying. She tends to talk a lot, but in a way, I kind of like that because I am on the quiet side, so it seems to work out. We have a lot in common, she is smart, she can make me laugh, and when we are alone, we talk about some pretty intimate things (family, life etc) which is normally hard for me to do with most people...I dunno...I just like the girl.  It just feels so weird to have all your friends bad mouthing her though (they don't really know that I'm into her). What would you guys do?

Who's dating her?  You, or your friends?

If you really feel a connection with this girl, go for it.  Your friends may get to know her better and like her more.

And even if they don't, and down the road you really, really feel that this is a big issue, then you can decide what to do from there.  But to not try, and miss out on something that could be the best thing to ever happen to you becuase you were worried your friends wouldn't approve...in my book, that'd be regret, with a capital R.

Geez, show some cojones and make your own decision. No one here can tell you how to live your life, nor should you want them to.

If I had taken the "bros before hos" advice I would have never ended up with my girlfriend of 5 years...

I say go for it.

Show some backbone, but don't rush into anything.  Take things easy.  Your friends may see something that your blinded to that could make you unhappy later.
