relationship double standards
Friday, July 12, 2013
So here is a question... I'm just curious as to other opinions on the situation...
I have had many girl friends who have been in relationships with guys where the guy made it clear that their relationship wasn't going to be long-term. Everyone seems to be fine with that, even though most of the time my friends end up getting hurt.
I have another friend who was in a relationship with a guy and she made it clear from the beginning that it wouldn't be forever. When SHE ended it with HIM, some of our other friends got all sorts of offended and sided with the guy, even though they aren't even friends with him to begin with. In fact, they are going out of their way to ask him to dinner and stay facebook friends with him, etc.
Is this a clear case of double-standards? Should I feel angry (I do btw) at these friends for siding with the guy?
It is taking all of my restraint to not flip out and call these people out and tell them to mind their own business....
