I've just noticed a trend throughout my relationships: I've never been able to feel close (or even very friendly) with my boyfriends' friends. I'm not sure why this is -- I certainly don't blame any of them, especially since this is a constant reoccurance with every relationship! I've tried to pick my brain over why this is. I'm trying hard not to be standoffish, but I just can't feel that natural chemistry with them that seems like the stuff friendship is made of! It always feels forced, with each group of diverse individuals, so I know the problem is all me! Are you friends with your boyfriend's or husband's friends? I feel like that's the norm and I'm just odd!
