Good Idea or Bad Idea: Dishing to your Friends About your Man

In the beginning of a new relationship, part of the excitement of learning about your new crush is sharing every detail with your girlfriends and getting their input. But, on the flip side, when you fight, your friends offer their two cents regardless if you take their advice or not which can make for awkward encounters between friends and lovers in the future.

While it is fun to share the good times about your new romance, do you think it is a good idea or bad idea to share the bad times as well?

I'm close to good idea, but to a certain extent. It is not good to tell anyone everything. Some things should just stay between me and him and that's it. Sometimes I don't like when my friends address my ex as "The Idiot" that is only my right :D

It all depends on what you are dishing! Sometimes it's best to keep others out of your relationship because *(friends)are very vindictive! You might lose your Man, give up to much info.!!!

You have to be careful. Make sure that if you do, you also share the good. After the inception of the relationship, you just assume your friends know the good things and only start sharing the bad times. If only share the bad times, that is all they will remember.

Bad idea overall but sometimes you do need someone to talk to about things but mostly I kept things private.

Bad idea not friends or family members they'll get in your business from them on, and always talk bad about your boyfriend. Unless you're broken up for good don't talk to your friends about these things.

Sharing too much information can be potentially hazardous to a relationship. Some basic stats are fine, a funny or sweet thing about him absolutely acceptable to tell, but beyond that you're betraying your boyfriend on some level and exposing his intimacies to people he may not want to share those things with. My boyfriend's last girlfriend dished everything to her friends, and they became very judgmental towards him. He ended up leaving the relationship because of it, and she couldn't understand why. It made him uncomfortable that everyone knew everything about him, including his sexual preferences.

Bad idea.....most friends tend to hold grudges way after you're done being PO'd at him.

I think this is a bad idea especially if what you're telling your friends is the bad things about the relationship, it just puts the friend into an awkward position. It's hard to hear about what he or she did and then expect your friend to just be friendly to them. I've had a lot of issues with this, and I'm not really sure how to make it work without this happening. Any suggestions?

I definitely agree lickety... My BFF and my boyfriend are great friends as well, but I still share because I think it's important to have someone to talk to about this sort of stuff. Although I do agree that there are some things that are very private... so, it depends.

things like height, eye color, hobbies, interests, job, etc. that stuff yes. things he tells you in confidence or things he would be embarassed to have your friends know; no.

I agree muchacha! It's best to think before we run our mouths and open a door we cant shut. Always think "would I want him telling his friends this??". Somethings are best kept between you and your guy. :)

It depends ... I will some ... but not with everything. And I guess it depends on who it is. But I lean more towards NO ... because friends will always remember the bad.
