so I was saying there was this guy I was after
and my friends warned me about him
they said he had unfinished business with this other girl
and I thought no he doesnt
she is known to be seeing someone else

so I ignored their advice

he was however on the rebound ...
and I walked into a can of worms

should you always listen to your friends
if they dont like your boyfriend

or might they be possessive of you
and just not want you to have a boyfriend ?

Zoe - take your time getting to know him and his current situation. Your friends just want to protect you. So approach it slowly and gently... find out whether he really is on the rebound.

This has happened countless times throughout history for both genders, do you listen to your friends or is it a case of you have to make your own mistakes so that you learn from them.

At least you came out of the experience a wiser person.

thankyou Ziedite and NWiddi

well this was a few years back actually
but it might arise again with the same people

taking it slowly had not occurred to me doh !

I always wanted to make my own mistakes
but one of those mistakes was not listening to my friends !

I was in this situation at the start of my current relationship and I picked the guy. I’m pretty glad I did. I felt a little strange at first cause in theory i would say listen to friends but at the same time if you really love someone you shouldn’t lose that just bc someone else says you should walk away. I wish everyone would have just gotten along though darn it!

not sure really, I think I should have listened to my friends
they were older than me
and knew some things that I couldn't see
