Friends are important. Don’t ditch your friends for a guy. If you do have to choose between them make a smart decision and be polite to whoever won’t be able to see you. When crap hits the fan, you want your friends there for you. If you and your significant other are having troubles or break up, your friends will be there for you, but only if you are there for them in return. If you take time to be with your friends then your guy will appreciate that you care and that you have a life of your own outside of him.
