So your buddy is totally in love with his girlfriend. And you want to be supportive of his relationship. Really, you do. But there’s a problem: she kinda sucks and you're secretly desperately hoping he gets rid of her. You have your reasons -- some valid, others questionable. But for the sake of your friendship, it's important to address your issues -- outlined below -- with caution.
She's basically your third roommate
At first, living with your friend was the shit. You watched Gold Rush on Friday nights with nothing but a six-pack and each other. Well, better make it a 12-pack now, because his girlfriend literally NEVER leaves your place. And you resent her. You spend your hard-earned money on that converted two-bedroom, and dammit if Velcro-nica is going to freeload, infringe upon guy time, and leave eight face creams in your medicine cabinet. Your home is your haven so definitely speak up for yourself, but confront your buddy -- NOT her. Remember: he's the one allowing her to do this. State your concern and suggest they start spending a few nights at her place.
She's the reason you never have man night anymore
"Bros before hoes" doesn’t hold much weight once a relationship becomes serious, and if you've ever had a girlfriend, you know this firsthand. It’s hard to make everyone happy -- and the clingier Rachel becomes, the more your buddy struggles with splitting up his time. It doesn't mean you're no longer his blood brother, homeboy, ride-or-die, etc. Don't let this be about jealousy! Be glad Rachel likes him as much as you do. But if he hasn't been out with just the boys in months, do the work for him. Clap him on the shoulder with a platonic "We miss you, man," and plan a guys-only Taco Tuesday.
