Social Sharing

We all have those relationships, romantic or otherwise – the ones we just are not so sure about. And sometimes it can be hard to know if it’s worth salvaging that bond or if it’s time to call it quits. To help with all your toughest dating and friendship predicaments, we invited viewers to send in their most pressing relationship issues, and Andrea Bain and Shahir Massoud offered up their opinions on if they should end it or mend it.

My new girlfriend is really great. She’s sweet, beautiful and seems very loving. There is just one problem, she only has one really close girlfriend. I have a pretty active social life and a big circle of close guy friends. Is her lack of friends strange? Is this new relationship worth pursuing?

Shahir: MEND IT. As we get older, our groups of friends tends to get smaller, so one friend sounds normal enough. But tons of friends can be a pain too, so be careful what you wish for. Sounds like one solid companion is a great happy medium. He shouldn’t complain.

Andrea: Maybe your fear is that when you’re hanging out with your friends she’s going to be alone, and you’ll feel guilty. But here’s this guy describing this wonderful girl, and he focuses on this tiny potential flaw in her? Perhaps she needs to break up with him. Maybe she likes to fly solo, or maybe she’s new to the city and all her friends are back home. To the man, I say MEND IT, but to the lady, maybe it’s time to start checking out other options.

My best friend and I have been friends for over 15 years. We’ve gone through a lot of ups and downs. My mom recently passed away and my friend wasn’t there for me when I needed her the most. I feel like she really let me down. Can this friendship last?

Shahir: There’s a kissbrides.com revisa el sitio question that needs to be answered here, because this friendship has been a long one. I think they need to ask their friend what happened. Were they sick? Maybe there was a reason they were unable to offer support when she needed it. A friendship this long can’t end without at least asking the question. If the answer is bad, then you END IT.

Andrea: END IT. I know a few people who lost someone important to them, and they were so disappointed when their friends didn’t reach out. Sure, there could be some extenuating circumstances, but nothing feels worse than losing someone and we depend on the friends we have to help us through times both good and bad. Sure, it’s been a 15 year friendship, but in my opinion, you’re only my friend until you’re not.

Years ago I asked the girl of my dreams to marry me, and she turned me down. The rejection took me by surprise. To me, she is the one that got away. I’m in a new relationship now, but recently I heard from my ex and she says she wants me back. Should I end things with my current girlfriend and get back together with my ex?

Andrea: END IT. I totally agree. You don’t get a do over, ex-girlfriend. He probably looks great with his new lady on social media, and she’s jealous. Ick. And even if they did get back together, she would always be in charge of that relationship, telling him when to go and when to come back.
