Yes - and I should have listened!
well of course. But being stubborn as I am, I typically heeded my own counsel as far as relationships. And of course had it blow up in my face numerous times
no...but if this is a good friend, you really should consider if this person may have real cause for concern
if she hasn't met him...it doesn't seem logical that she could have made a judgement on him as a person. Is your friend normally judgmental or clingy as a person.
I think it depends. None of my friends would say such a thing unless they knew something really bad about the situation that I didn't. They wouldn't disapprove for trivial reasons.
My best friend actually chose my boyfriend for me and we have been married 38 years!!!!!
