Have you ever been in a relationship and your friends or your bf/gf friends influence a relationship? can friends influence a relationship in a good or bad way? Had you had a friend that did not like who you were dating and try to tell you not to date him/her? or has your bf/gf friends try to stop her/him from dating you? What is your story on friends influence a relationship?

From my point of view it always depends how close you are to your friends. Such as the mentality "Well, if my friends don't like her then she's just not the girl for me." As for me, family is what influences mine since I'm so close to my family. I mean I have friends who I consider close but I've never had that connection with my friends where they have any influence over what I do or who I do it with. If this makes sense?

it really depends on how close you are with your group of friends and how independent you are from them when it comes to making your own decisions. if you find that you're easily influenced by what your friends say or do, then it will definitely affect how much say they have in your relationship (good or bad).

My last ex-girlfriend was super cool. She was one of those people who accept me for anything plus she was a big nerd in a cute way. But all my friends and family hated her for no reason and to this day I still don't understand. I live near Baylor university and everyone i guess excepts me to date Abercrombie & Fitch type of girl. Which is not my type. i ended breaking up with her in a peaceful way. So now i choose to stay single unless i move-out of town. I would not recommend this and if feel right stick with it unless the another person doesn't appreciate you. Then take you friends and family advice. Good luck

It can, especially if you start listening to whatever your friends have to say about the person you are dating. It can throw you off, or make you become aware of how that person is really like.

Friend with benefits<Girlfriend<Fiance<Wife<Mother of your Children

As you move up the ladder your other friends influences lessen, until they pretty much don't exist.

That's just too perfect, you have to be a marriage councilor or something

No one should ever let their parents, friends, co-workers or anyone else influence their decision on the person they are with, they can take advice but that is it nothing else. Otherwise you're doing a injustice to anyone you're with. That was part of the reason why my last relationship broke up. I really believe my other was swayed to much by others, she even started acting like others when I was around her toward the end doing things she normally has serious pet peeves against.

Edit: I very strongly believe it's wrong to let your morales go down the tubes because of your friends, you should never change who you are unless it's for your significant other. There is no excuse for it ever. Especially if you claim to be a certain way and put others down who are not capable of meeting up to those standards.
