if you let it, i guess yes...
Personally I'm too hard-headed to let anyone have influence on my relationships.
Maybe it's a bad thing...

It seems that for every girl I'm dating, there's some cranky bitch behind her that can't stand the look of me.
It only has an influence if you let it have, or if you're one of those people who has to date all of your friends, that kind of makes for a complicated status.

That extremely awkward moment where you stumble on an interesting forum only to find someone is talking about you, albeit without names mentioned, behind your back. HOWEVER. I'm not even going to acknowledge it and mention what I was going to say BEFORE I saw that.

They totally can. Usually, I am that friend, and for good reason. There was a time where my friend Jessie was in a relationship with his extremely abusive piece of absolute-- anyway, in short he was terrible. He was this overly jealous and possessive moron who wouldn't give her the time of day to live her life. He'd even fake depression, the psychological DISEASE, for her attention. So... I kept telling her this is a bad relationship she got herself in, and eventually, she realised it and got out.

There have been other times where I've bad to help people get out of bad places, but usually they knew they were in a bad place and didn't have the confidence to leave on their own. Actually, with Jessie was the only time the friend was oblivious.

Having a friend come in is NOT always a bad thing.

No, I've only had one friend who was like that. But all she did was whine about how she was always single & it sucked, being alone on New Years, Valentines Day, etc. "wish it was my turn to be happy" Facebook statuses. Plus she always tried to convince me my other exes she'd spent a lot of time around, that every time they gave her a compliment, they were trying to pick her up, or sleep with her. Well, you get it, she needed a Whineken with a plate of French Cries. I set her straight & told her to put her big girl panties on & focus on herself. She's now in a relationship that 'means something', & understands now. (-_- )

But I could understand if someone was in an abusive or emotionally damaging relationship & a friend couldn't help but getting into their business. But if one girl/guy is jealous or has issues with their own love life, & can't stand to see anyone else in a relationship & happy, then there's a Taylor Swift song for what you're feeling...Leave it alone.

Friends can greatly influence a relationship. They are the ones most likely to get you drunk, sleep with you, and then take pictures to send to your gf resulting in an angry breakup!

They are the ones close enough to you to abuse your trust in a very negative way! They will whisper lies about you into your lover's ear and cause doubt. After all, they are your friends and they know you well, why shouldn't she believe them when they say "He likes anal, so dont let him do you doggie! You never know when he might try to 'What what'".
Next thing you know you're having problems in the bed, and her legs get locked up like a freaking panic room during a break in!

Then comes in the emotional fuckery. After all, they are your friends. Why should she not believe them when they say in a casual tone, "Hey, did he tell you he use to have a boyfriend back in middle school? Yeah, you're his first girlfriend actually. We always thought he only liked guys." Next thing you know she looks at you funny every time you come back from a guy's night out playing Madden! And she's just looking at you all "Why were you gone all night, huh?!
Dont even get started on the look in her eyes when you all come out of the locker room after gym class!

Those are just possibilities though... its not like I know anyone who has suffered from such a traumatic experience.

I don't think they always influence in a bad way, my latest ex was hated by all my friends (for a good reason) and it was just a sign that we should break up. I still stayed with him for a few years though >_> I guess they finally helped me break up with him...

But my friends absolutely love my current boyfriend, in fact, when it comes to influencing, the only influence they have is to encourage me not to argue with him and stuff like that.

I always think if your friends don't like your boyfriend/girlfriend, then there's usually a reason behind it. If you let your friends influence you in bad ways then they're not really good enough friends, in my opinion.

Yes, My first boyfriend friends broke us up because they said I didn't really like him and I was using him to buy me stuff because he was white and I was black. He dumped me and cried for weeks.
