Listen to Your Gut
One of the signs your boyfriend likes his female friend is when your gut is screaming that he is developing feelings for another woman. This inner instinct is an alert system that you should pay attention to. If your gut feeling tells you that your man is up to no good, don’t ignore or make excuses for it. If you are feeling this way, it's time to discuss your concerns, suspicions and fears about the friendship he has with his female friend.
Another important factor to consider is your boyfriend's behavior and actions towards his female friend. Pay attention to how much time they spend together, how often they communicate, and if they have any inside jokes or intimate conversations. If you notice that your boyfriend is prioritizing his female friend over you, it could be a sign that he has feelings for her. Additionally, if he becomes defensive or secretive when you ask about their friendship, it could be a red flag. Trust your instincts and have an open and honest conversation with your boyfriend about your concerns.
They Flirt Together
There is harmless flirting and then there is suggestive flirting with sexual innuendos and sexy body language. Take note of how your boyfriend and his female friend act when they are around each other. Think of the way you acted when you began crushing on your man. Are you seeing similarities in her behavior when she is hanging out with him?
Her Name Always Comes up
Think of the conversations you have had with your man lately. Is his female friend always a topic of conversation regardless of the subject that you are talking about? When a guy begins to crush on a girl, he is constantly thinking of her so he frequently talks about her. If you are sick of hearing his female friend’s name because he is always talking about her, I hate to say it but it's highly likely your man is secretly crushing on her.
The warning signs that your boyfriend is crushing on his female friend can be subtle, but they are there. If you notice your boyfriend frequently talking about her, it could be a sign that he is developing romantic feelings for her. Other signs could include him suddenly becoming more interested in his appearance, frequently texting her, or going out of his way to do nice things for her.
Your boyfriend may also start to become more distant with you, or he may start to become more secretive. He may become more protective of his phone or computer, or he may start to hide his conversations with her. He may also start to make excuses to spend time with her or he may start to talk about her in a more positive light than he does other people.
If you're worried that your boyfriend is developing feelings for his female friend, it's important to talk to him about it. While it can be awkward, it's important to be honest with him and let him know how you feel. It's also important to remember that it's okay to have platonic friendships with people of the opposite sex. However, if your boyfriend is exhibiting any of the warning signs mentioned above, it could be a sign that he is developing feelings for her.
She is on a Pedestal
Another sign he is crushing on his female friend is that he puts her on a pedestal so she can do no wrong. For example, when the three of you hang out she is blatantly rude to you, which is a really uncool thing to do, and yet he still manages to defend her. It might seem to you that your boyfriend is wearing rose-colored glasses when it comes to his female friend even when she is totally wrong. If it seems like his female friend is Ms. Perfect in his eyes, maybe it's time for you to find a new guy that will always put your feelings and needs first.
Comparing the Two of You
Every good boyfriend knows that he should never compare his girlfriend to another woman. Most guys understand that this is a really hurtful thing to do to a girl that they love. If your man has suddenly started comparing you to his female friend, loud alarm bells should be ringing in your head. When you hear these kinds of comments from him, it means that he is starting to think that she is better than you.
You Are Uncomfortable
When the three of you hang out, you began to feel like you don’t belong and are the third wheel on their date. When your boyfriend is around her, you feel totally ignored. You notice them having prolonged eye contact and he doesn’t look at her the way he looks at other girls. You can’t even remember when he looked at you in that special way.
She is His Priority
Lately your boyfriend drops everything when she invites him to hang out alone. You are beginning to see a pattern of him blowing you off just so he can spend time with this other female. You feel like you have become second to her. He is spending way more time with his female friend than he does with any other girl, including you. You are so uncomfortable around them, all you want to do is get out of their presence.
If you have discussed your concerns about this friendship with your boyfriend and he doesn’t change his behavior to minimize your worries, it’s time to walk, ladies. Do you have any other tips you can share when a boyfriend likes his female friend?
