Dear Lord. If all guys let the presence of a girl's friends intimidate them, hell...most people would never get together. I can't get over the wimpy whiney men here.

Default No, Thankfully.

Met and spent time with 3 of my GF's friends. Every single one was great and outgoing. Was fortunate to never have this problem at all anytime. I am easy to get along with I think.

Nothing wrong with them wanting to go out and just hang with their friends - that's what most people do - but then you can't blame people for complaining about how hard it is to meet people IRL.

yes, its called cockblocking in 2012 and happens all the time. Thats why as soon as you meet a woman who shows oyu some interest, you have to move her.

There is just not one solid answer for this. Strictly situational.

Feel better about yourself now?

I don't go to places where women do this, anyway. It was a once or twice thing and I figured that a bar or club wasn't the best place to meet women I'd want to be in a relationship with.

Apparently, my classes and the grocery store are much better.

I'm not saying a group of women consorting or discussing men is ALWAYS bad, of course, but let's face it, sometimes girls aren't really fair (and vice versa).

Also would be interesting to hear specific examples where a female friend or friends of hers actively or impeded or sabotaged your relationship. Perhaps you were getting along great, then she played a dirty trick, said something to influence her, you know what I mean. I mean even meeting some women, they're so esconsed in their group that it's like navigating a minefield. E.g. even approaching them at a club when they're with their friends.

I mean oftentimes women's intuition is spot on, and in some cases they do help get their friend out of trouble, or prevent her from ending up with an undesirable, but does the over-protective mentality sometimes just get in the way?

We are NOT a "herd"........we are a bunch of old HEFERS that hate all men and will do what has to be done to ensure that NONE of our friends leave US for a MAN..............LOLOLOLOL

Not all women are like that honestly and those of us who are not like that have to battle that sterotype everyday. Some women who are friends are wonderful when it comes to relationships, their own men and their friends, others just don't know how to balance both.

Keep in mind IF we see any form of abuse happening we will be very protective of our friend and talk to her about it but in the end we allow her to make her own choice and try and give as much support as possible BUT this only applies to those women who are comfortable in their own skins with their lives, relationships and female friends.

Story of my life, well thanks to other outside parties. Seems there was a time when a women knew some things about me she would change her mind. It was mostly prevalent at work and post HS so naturally it felt like most of the town laughed at the idea if I showed interest.

Its not like I approach them while in the herd, that's just suicide.
