Meeting Their Friends
People often let their friends help them with important decisions. These are the people they have known and trusted for years. They know their friends will give them an honest opinion when asked. A friend is someone that will look out for their best interests and tell them when they are making a mistake. People often want someone they are dating to meet their friends. This is an excellent way to find out if the person is a good match.
A group of people are often excited to meet someone that is dating one of their friends. Their hopes are that the person is worthy of their friend and will make them happy. These people also realize they are being asked to pass judgment. Most take it as a serious duty of being a good friend. After all, if the person is important enough to meet, the relationship has progressed and become relatively serious.
It is always unfortunate when a person cannot pass muster with their date's friends. This usually signifies the end of the relationship. While a person will occasionally go against the judgment of their friends, it happens less often than people think. They know their friends are looking out for them. They often choose to sever the relationship.
Once the relationship ends, the person must find someone else to offer them comfort and physical intimacy. Rather than jumping right into another relationship, a friend might explain the role of a fuck buddy to them. This will give the person time to sort out their emotions while enjoying no strings attached sex with someone that is not seeking a relationship. Fuck buddies are only for physical relief, not a date or relationship. It gives the person that has just broken up a chance to recover emotionally before seeking another dating partner.
