I’m sure this won’t be the first time most of you will be hearing about stolen boyfriends here and there .These streets are cold brothers and sisters and we need to look out for each other.
I was talking to a friend some time ago and she told me her friend was getting married to her ex boyfriend. I wasn’t shocked until she told me they started dating while she was still with him.
Wait what? How is that even possible?.
You see you can’t really trust anybody with your boo these days, these things happen but if you’re careful enough you may be able to avoid letting your boyfriend marry your best friend. Studies by the IISSS (International Institute of Still Single and Searching) show that 83% of young women who introduced their best friends to their boyfriends either ended up receiving invitation cards to attend their weddings or found out on Instagram. To help make sure you’re not part of the statistics we’ve come up with this list.
Here are some useful tips you can use
1. The Meeting
Don’t let your best friends meet your boyfriend. Try as much as you can to hide him, never go to his house or office with any of your friends except its her car and she’s driving you there or you just need to see him briefly. On such occasions make sure your friend stays in the car. Let him say hello and go. No small talk! Moreover, if she doesn’t see him she won’t know him right?
2. The Talk
A lot of girls like to talk about their men, carry on. You’re doing a good job. But let me tell you something, the moment your friends feel like that’s the kind of man they want in their lives I’m sorry girl, if they want him they’ll take him. Your friends shouldn’t know too much about your man. That relationship is between the both of you not you and your friends. They should only know him on a first name basis and that’s it. No more!
3. The Phone
If you’re like me, and you don’t put a lock on your phone then I think this part is really important. Always put a lock on your phone. This way it’ll be hard to take your boo’s number from the phone and you don’t have to worry. Make sure you monitor your phone at all times before you hear stories that touch.
4. The Double Date
Don’t ever go on a double date, if your friend is dating his friend then fine but be careful. Double dates are really not necessary. If you try to set up your friend with your boyfriend’s friend and he’s an asshole, your boyfriend better be an asshole too or he’s going to be the knight in shinning armor.
5. The Cheating Test
This is the most common mistake girls make. You give out your boyfriends number and tell your friend to try to seduce him. Don’t do it. It’s a trap. You are going to get a wedding invite 6 months later from you’re friend and guess who she’s getting married to?
Ladies don’t set yourself up. these things also apply to guys too. Not all your guys are your guys.
I’ve helped you in the best way I can but if it eventually happens to you and your best friend is getting married to your gf/bf then it was meant to be. Adjust your crown and move on.
