Types of friends that can ruin your relationship


We’d like to believe that our friends have our best interests at heart, especially when they offer advice on our relationships. But be careful – not all of them mean well.

friends that will ruin you

The one who tells your man about your past relationships

This friend is the most dangerous. Everyone has a past; we’ve all hooked up with weird people and did things that we wish we could take back. So if you have a friend who loves digging into this past every time she meets your man, keep her as far away as possible.

The party animal

Now that you’re now in a relationship, she’s pressuring you to go out clubbing with her all the time; her advice to you is that clubbing will take your mind off your relationship. She complains that you don’t have time for her anymore and keeps showing up randomly to see you almost She might be doing this to sabotage your relationship so that you will be single just like her.

The one who wants your man

It’s okay for your man and friends to share jokes but this one always takes it too far; she tries to dig deep into whatever your man is saying, and never waits to ask your man to dance with her. She will hint that you should leave your significant other. He or she may say that your mate isn’t good enough for you. So you always feel a little cautious around her.

Your boyfriend’s relative

Befriending your boyfriend’s relatives is never a good idea because they are the worst when it comes to your relationship. This includes being friends with your boyfriend’s brother, sister or any other relative. They’ve grown up with your man and “know” everything about him. Believe it or not, even their advice can be tainted. They may tell you negative things about his past; they might be doing this just to ruin your relationship.
