Dear Poll: Do You Trust Him With His Friends?

Whether it's dragging them to a strip club or making them feel guilty for not hanging out more, our boyfriends' buddies have a big reputation for being bad influences. We can feel certain that our boyfriends are the most honest and good-natured people, but put them in a room full of their guy friends and suddenly they’re one of the pack. Of course, it always depends on the guy and the friends, but do you trust your significant other when he’s with his friends?

I trust him. I always say if you can't trust them to hang out with there guy friends, how can you trust them at all?

I didn't trust my ex, but I trust my boyfriend, and yes it's who his friends are that counts.

i'm quite lucky. my boy has probably the best group of friends ever. they just play video games and eat. the best part is is that they like me to come too because i even out teams and am generally more of another friend than his girlfriend (i play on opposite teams, i dont baby him... i just don't treat him like my "boyfriend" then - no kisses hugs special treatment - just friend time)

However, he chooses to hang with the good people, so I never have a trust issue with him.

He has alcoholic and pothead friends. Damn right, I don't trust them at all. They're horrible people that lay on the peer pressure waaay too thick for my like.

Yes absolutely ......whether i trust his friends or not I trust him. I'd trust him with anyone.I'm not going to blame his friends if he cheats because he's a big boy who makes his own choices and he knows what the consequences are.They aren't going to influence him to do something he really doesn't want to do.

My first boyfriend was great (that was YEARS ag). I knew I could trust him with his friend and had no problem with him hanging out with them. My recent ex, however, NOPE! Didnt trust him at all. All they did was party (clubbing, having certain types of parties are their houses, etc) and a lot of them were not faithful. And my instincts servced right. My ex was no better than them. Guess that's why he's an ex huh? LOL So It all depends on the guy (you should trust your man and if you dont, maybe he shouldnt be your man) and it depends on his friends.

if you cant trust your man then why waste your time and his, if he is going to cheat he will cheat he does not need influences

I totally trust my boyfriend, even though he is cute AND a musician. Trust me, it took some time, but he proved himself. Plus I've known a lot of my bf's friends longer than I've known him (we are/were in the same social circle) so he knows if he ever did anything untoward, they'd be on him like a duck on a June bug!

He wouldn't do anything that he didn't want to do because of his friends. If he makes a bed decision it wouldn't have anything to do with the influence of his friends. I am also very close to his them as we've all been in the same circle for about 17 years now. They would probably end up being the ones giving him some kind of ultimatum in the end if he ever did do something wrong out of fear I'd kill them ALL if I ever found out about it. But I trust him anyway so I don't worry about this stuff.

i don't worry about hubby cheating or anything..only thing i worry about now is him and his friends doing stupid things. like the other day, his friend trying to kill ants in the mailbox...almost set him arm on fire and they're both laughing about it. yea..the only thing i'm worried about is being called to the hospital for when they burn they're eyebrows off or something...and that's just the tip of the iceburg..:eyeroll:

hmm good question. I dont really know his friends but I dont't have a reason not to trust them. I know that several of his "bad influence" friends he is no longer friends with so I prefer to not spend my time worrying about it.

I'm completely content with not worrying about my BF going out with his friends. In fact, with the little time he spends actually going somewhere with other people, I'd greatly encourage him to engage in some healthy boy fun. From the few times where he did go out and get a little drunk with the guys, I got calls at 3-4am with the sweetest and cutest things he'd never say to me sober, so I'm all for him going out more haha! His friends arent the problem.. I'd worry more about girls approaching him while I'm not around to get catty ; )

My guy's friends are pretty nice guys, and I can't really imagine them convincing him to do anything awful. If he does something stupid, it's his fault anyway.

Most of the time, my boyfriends friends put him on track, and have better ideas than he does. So I really trust them.

I trust my guy with his friends, even though two of them aren't exactly what you'd call an 'upstanding boyfriend example'. However, I've gotten to know his friends and know the worst they'll get him to do is get drunk and sing Toby Keith at karaoke night at the campus pub. However, what sealed the deal happened a few weeks ago when one messaged me and told me I had to come home NOW because the BF was being whiny and sucky and no fun.

If someone tries to pressure my BF into doing something he gets so irritated he will generally do the exact opposite of what they want him to do. I know this because he does it to me, too :) It's irritates me occasionally, but I would rather date a guy with a mind of his own than someone who is afraid to say NO for fear of not being cool or whatever.

Well, considering my husbands best friend is my brother, I think I'm pretty safe. The rest of his friends (with the exception of his friends he met through work) are my friends too, so no worries here.

I had an ex that blamed all of his bad behavior on his friends, it was always somehow their fault. But I knew better. I knew he was a willing participant in all the stupid things he did. I remember when my husband and I were still dating and his friend was in town from Arizona and he said to my (then) bf that he should come out to visit him and they could go to Vegas. He then looked sideways at me and added quickly, "Would you trust him to go to Vegas with me?" I said of course I would. He looked at me like I was an alien and said, "You wouldnt have a problem with him going to Vegas without you?" he turned back to my bf and said, "You better marry that girl!" My husband isnt really into clubs or stripclubs- he might get drunk with his friends but he would never do anything to hurt me, no matter how much he drank. His friends like me so I know they also would never encourage him to do something stupid

i second that "birds of a feather" comment... if his friends are asses, he's probably one too :P

His best friends are my friends too and they'd never want to piss me off hehe. Even if he was out with people I didn't know he would never do anything, he's really not into anything bad and doesn't drink or do drugs or anything like that.

Of course I trust my husband...his best guy friends are my friends too, they're certainly not "bad influences" at all.

Some of his friends are idiots, some arent. When he's with the idiots he is always on his guard and always thinking of me. He is not easily swayed by anyone, which is one of the things I really respect about him. It also helps that he doesnt like to get drunk, especially in public.
