The5 Friends You Wish He’d Ditch

You found an amaz­ing boyfriend—but his friends eff­ing suck. Here’s how to deal and still be the cool GF.

Cosmopolitan (India) - - MEN & YOU -

1 THE PERMA-BACH­E­LOR

WHO HE IS: An in­flu­ence so bad, he makes Char­lie Sheen look se­na­to­rial. He comes over smelling like misog­yny and daddy is­sues from his se­rial dat­ing (and some il­le­gal) ex­pe­ri­ences. And if you guys ever break up, he’d have your boy go all out at the club that night.

HOW TO DEAL: You’re not his babysit­ter. It would be over­step­ping to make your man de-friend this de­gen­er­ate, but re­mind him that, un­like his friend’s, umm, as­so­ciates, you ac­tu­ally al­low him to touch you—for free.

2 THE BIG EFF­ING DEAL

WHO HE IS: This David Karp (Tum­blr founder) wannabe and his crew of start-up studs make your man de­pressed about his sta­tus. You wish you could tell him to Zuck on it.

HOW TO DEAL: Re­mind your guy of what this I.T. sucker doesn’t have: you. If the mood strikes, show him the only big swing­ing D you need is his.

3 THE HOT BFF

WHO HE IS: He’s se­cretly on your f*ck-it list. You can’t help but ogle his ass at ev­ery party...and throw his girl­friend the side-eye.

HOW TO DEAL: Con­jure his gross­est qual­i­ties (post-din­ner fin­ger lick­ing?) or that story your BF told you about his drunken bed-wet­ting habit. All of a sud­den, he’s bleh, not hot.

4 THE THIRD WHEEL

WHO HE IS: He is sin­gle and des­per­ate and al­ways crashes your dates (in­clud­ing that one in­cred­i­bly awk­ward cou­ples mas­sage... for three).

HOW TO DEAL: Plan dates (like din­ner at an exclusive chef’s counter) that this dude can’t eas­ily join in on. Add some un­der-the-ta­ble thigh graz­ing so your BF gets the hint.

5 THE BRO­MAN­TIC

WHO HE IS: Like Liam Nee­son and bad hostage movies, these guys are a pack­age deal. He’s known your man since their di­a­per days and wishes they still shared a crib.

HOW TO DEAL: Think of this guy as a love bene­fac­tor. When­ever you want to watch the Kar­dashi­ans in peace, you’ve got some­one to pawn your man off on.

Get lost, Sch­midt (from New Girl)

Ar­jun or Ran­veer?

Hmmm...

Back-up buddy, Liam Nee­son
