This happens more often than not. One of your friends gets a new boyfriend/girlfriend and then all of a sudden your friend disappears off the face of the earth. I always thought that this only happened when girls get boyfriends, but I’ve actually seen it in a few guys.
To be honest, I was one of these people. Story time… it was my first real relationship and I was head over heals over this guy. Once we started dating all I wanted to do was spend all my time with him. It was nice, you know? Being with someone who liked you and you had a good time with. I didn’t seem to need to go out with my friends because there were so many things to do with this guy, we were preoccupied with each other.
But then in the end, the relationship did not last… although I had a few friends that I kept throughout the relationship, I realized that I lost majority of my friends. Luckily a lot of my friends were forgiving enough and I managed to gain them back, but it took some time. Only because as the two years I was spending with my now ex-boyfriend, life went on and they moved on.
From this experience, whenever a new guy comes into my life, there’s no need to shut out my friends.
You may need those friends in the long run… and I’m sure they won’t be too happy if you do shut them out all because of a new relationship.
