This means that you can also learn lots about a man by taking a look at his friends. So take a look at his entourage. Examine them, probe them. Watch them carefully. Because he is them. Let’s take a look at 10 things you can learn about a man simply by looking at his friends.
1. How Likely He Is To Cheat?
What are his buddies like when it comes to the opposite gender? Are they obnoxious and vulgar? Do they often speak of women as though they’re objects? Is Showgirls one of their favourite movies? More to the point, are they all addicted to Tinder and hook-ups? And if they do have regular girlfriends, do they talk about them often and invite them out? Or do you literally never see them? Or are they the opposite? Are they charming, polite and strictly monogamous? Do they talk lovingly about their girls and do they invite them out?
The way a man’s squad treats their women is very telling. If there is a strong whiff of cheating in there, you need to see this as a red flag – especially if your man himself doesn’t seem to condemn it.
2. How Successful He Will Be?
Our friends rub off on us in a huge way. If they’re successful, our own chances of being a success increase massively. The opposite is true, too – the more unsuccessful they are, the more unsuccessful we will be. Friends literally build us up and bring us down. So how successful or unsuccessful are his friends? Are they achievers or losers?
3. If He’s Misogynistic
Following on from the one above, obnoxious men who use vulgar language when it comes to women are probably misogynistic. And there is a strong chance that if your man doesn’t shut their conversation down, he probably secretly agrees with them. If he knew any better, he would tell them to respect women more. Silence is deafening. Be careful.
4. How Likely He Is To Support You?
Your man absolutely must support you. He must be there for you at all times. He MUST have your back. Even if he disagrees with something you say, it’s his duty to defend you. So how is he around his friends when they challenge you? Does he stick up for you? Or does he feed you to the wolves and let them mock you? If he can’t stand up for you around his friends, he’s probably not going to be super supportive at any point.
5. What His Lifestyle Is Like?
Don’t fancy dating a man who goes out drinking every weekend with his buddies, literally without fail? Then take a look at his friends. One look at his squad will tell you all you need to know about his lifestyle, and how compatible it is with yours. If he’s constantly getting drunk, playing video games and going to sports games, it might be a massive red flag if you’re not into any of that stuff.
6. Whether Or Not His Parents Might Like You
Imagine if his entire entourage was obnoxious and annoying? You might think that you’ll be a breath of fresh air to his parents, who can’t wait to meet a person who actually smells good. However, the opposite might be true. These guys are his friends for a reason, and the fact is that his parents probably like them. If you are different to his friends and stand out like a sore thumb, there is every chance you and his parents won’t get along so well.
