Dear friend, I am writing this to let you know that I don’t like your girlfriend.
I know. Harsh.
There’s just something off about her attitude, and how you both kind of lack chemistry, and how she low-key pressures you to change a lot about yourself — okay, you get the point.
You two have been in this relationship for quite some time now; long enough for me get to know her, hear your stories (good and bad) about her, and observe how you two are together. Don’t get me wrong; I’m happy you have found somebody to spend your days with. I just can’t help but feel so off about your relationship. My gut just tells me that she isn’t the one for you.
Because you’re my best friend, I’m not afraid to tell you this. You deserve the truth from someone you completely trust, after all. But, because you’re my best friend, I’m not going to tell you everything. I believe you deserve to know my true thoughts about your significant other, but I care about you too much to hurt your feelings.
I’m not expecting you to be on my side, but it matters to me that you know and understand where I’m coming from when I tell you that there’s something about your relationship that, in my opinion as an outsider, requires reflecting on.
No, I’m not telling you to break up with her. I respect you two enough to not tell you this outright. I may not like your girlfriend, but I’m not evil enough to wish she was gone from your life.
After all, what matters to me is your happiness. My genuine concern over you is rooted in that fact. For as long as you’re happy, or somewhat happy, or “okay pa naman” (or so you say), then I can rest easy knowing you’ll be okay.
At the end of the day, I could be completely wrong about her. Maybe you two will work out your problems and eventually be together in the long run. I mean, we’re all young and still growing, learning, changing; there’s so much we can’t say for sure will last.
So even if I don’t like her right now, I could eventually. But don’t take it against me if I’ll remain skeptical about her as long as I see that you aren’t as happy as you should be.
It doesn’t really matter what I think, anyway. The important thing is you love her and that she loves you, for however long you two have together.
