We've all been there. Sometimes, your friend is dating someone you just can't stand. Maybe this person has track record of being a jerk. Or, maybe you can't quite put your finger on it, but you're pretty sure this person's a shady character. Regardless of what your beef is with your BFF's S.O., you've gotta deal with it — chances are, he's not going anywhere anytime soon.
So, what's your strategy? Shape has a few god suggestions. For starters, you should be supportive. If you've voiced your opinion, you've gotta leave it at that. If this person does turn out to be a heartbreaker in disguise, that's something your bestie will have to learn for herself. It's also important to remember that not every fight is worth it. When it comes to disagreeing with her boo, pick your battles carefully. Check out the full list over at Shape. And, don't forget to bring over the pint of ice cream should a breakup eventually occur.
