My friend is dating a jerk

Rated 3.95/5 based on 823 customer reviews

When a close friend is dating someone you don’t like, what do you do?

The answer is easy: you step in and do whatever it takes to break them up. Okay, we know that answer won’t win the million-dollar prize.

If your friend is in a relationship that diminishes self-esteem, rather than enhancing it, pray earnestly and look for ways to build up and encourage your friend.

Look for an open door to discuss the dating relationship and what you see that may be harmful.

Friendships don’t stop simply because one person develops a romantic relationship with someone else.

The truth is, when it comes to dating and relating, there really are very few black and white answers.

Many times the answers lie in the gray areas, and in the deeper questions. If you’re afraid this new romance will have a major effect on the relationship you have with your friend, you may feel confused, disappointed and frustrated. Figuring out where the dislike is coming from is a good place to start and it can help you know how to pray for the situation and respond to it.
