Q: My best friend recently got involved with a girl, in my unbiased opinion, unworthy of him. She is just no good for him.
While he is loyal, she is nothing but a playgirl back to back.
The girl has always been with other guys. Lately she is seeing more of one particular guy. Even though my best friend knows about this, he is doing nothing.
Our other friends also give him countless advice but he refuses to see the truth.
Another thing is that this girl gets jealous each time other girls talk to my best friend. He knows this very well but still he keeps quiet and does nothing.
He is very much in love with her, I am afraid.
How can I make him see the plain truth? I really don’t want to see him suffer later.
A: Stop being a busybody and you will not feel paranoia.
Understand that in this relationship your friend has with the girl, your view or any others’ for that matter, does not count.
If they are having problems it is for them to sort out matters on their own and whatever happens, it is their business.
All you can do is to remain on the sidelines. If your friend needs you at some time, be there. Because you care about him and you are his best friend, you would do that.
