Dear Poll: Do You Get Along With His Friends?

No matter how well you get along with your guy, there’s no guarantee that you’ll find yourself chumming it up with his friends. Just because he is perfect, it doesn't mean his friends will be. I always try to get along with a boyfriend’s group of friends, but sometimes their immaturity surprises me, and I can’t help but find myself annoyed. Of course it depends on the friends, but generally speaking, do you get along with your boyfriend’s friends?

I got along really well with my exboyfriends friends, I'm still good friends with some of them now. But I think it's important for each partner in a relationship to have their own friends and friendship groups so that they can get away from each other from time to time.

My boyfriends friends have definitely become my friends. I would think it was weird if they weren't after 4 years. Sometimes they get a little immature and annoying but so does he, so I've just gotten used to dealing with it.

We have a huge group of friends we are both very close to. Most of them we've known for about 18 years (middle school) a few we've met over the years and quite. The only friends we have that aren't mutual friends are friends in work.

My boyfriend has friends he talks to, but he rarely hangs out with them. When he does, he'll just have a dinner with a group of friends or watch a movie with a friend. His friends are usually quiet and geeky, and anybody he enjoys spending time with would talk about games (video, Dungeons and Dragons, Magic, etc.) or physics...And I have nothing to contribute to either of those. They seem nice enough...They're just all single, and I feel intrusive and awkward when I'm around them.

my husband is an engineer. when he is with his friends they start speaking a geek language i don't even understand. we went out with 3 other couples (the guys are dh's friends) on st pats day and it was HORRIBLE. omg, these people were all geeked out during the entire dinner talking about bandwidth and calibration detectors, etc. blah-blah-blah. they're nice, but i can't do that more than twice a year. it's not so much not getting along as not getting them, lol. they are very pleasant people i just like my firends better.

My boyfriend's friends are cool. We get along, but I dont sit in the room and hang out with them whenever they are over. I just go in the bedroom. But for the most part they are very respectful towards me, they call me BOSS LADY. I think if your man speaks highly of you then his friends will respect you and you wont have a problem.

I consider myself a bit of a tom boy (with girly girl style) so I fit in with the guys pretty well. Besides most of Nic's friends are friends of my from childhood so I already knew what I was getting myself into. It is some of their girlfriends that I tend to not be so chummy with. Nic does have a few friends that I will not allow him to go out with simply because they do not adhere to rules of relationships if you get my drift.

Most of his friends are my friends and we like one another just fine. There are a couple that I can't stand, though. One severely chewed me out once for no reason (and I'm friends with his ex) so I don't like him. Another was the worst roommate ever and says filthy things, so I don't like him for the bad influence he is.

Well, my husband's friends are my friends too...we all hang out in a group. That usually happens once you're married.

My boyfriend is much better at making friends than I am. I'm pretty lucky that just about all of his friends are now my good friends too.

My BF has fantastic friends. He doesn't have that typical guy group of 30 year old frat boys so no issues with immaturity there...

Hahahahahahahahah duck duck goose .. my fiance is like that too.. Tho he has like two friends .. one from highschool and one from work His one friend from highschool and i do not get along very well, although we are a LOT better now When my other half and I first got together this friend would call me and berate me and say that someone as fat and ugly as me didn't deserve him.. and that I would just bring him down in life..and b lah blah blah... well my other half and him stopped speaking for a very long time..and his friend finally apologized.. for being stupid and I just am civil to him now just so I don't make waves and put a rift in their friendship And the other friend from work is fab and I love him and we get a long really well

Some of his friends can be annoying, but it never stops us from having a good time with them.

I'm still getting to know his friends. He dated another girl for 8 years before me that was very much a part of that group so it's a little awkward sometimes but they're all very nice people, mostly couples.
