My girlfriend and I have been dating for almost a year now, and living together for almost three months. Everything is going great so far, except her behavior toward one of her male friends. Note: I have been in recovery from alcohol addiction for over two years now. Recently, one of her male friends tried to friend me on FB, and asked me to have drinks with him knowing my situation. The guy has also said some demeaning things about me to my girlfriend and a close guy friend of mine. My girlfriend blames it on her friend’s own drinking problem. I feel certain they are not sleeping together, not ever have, but I am troubled that my girlfriend continues to be friends with him. I really need advice, guys and gals.

I’be been told that if it doesn’t feel right, then there’s probably something wrong.

How long has she been friends with this other guy? If for a long time, maybe she feels like she needs to be there for him if he is also struggling with an alcohol issue. I think it’s really crappy of him to try and get you to go drinking with him knowing your situation, and if I were her I would be bothered by that too.August 25, 2015 at 8:21 am #84681
Well Rondgram, I know what you mean. She has been pretty open and honest about her previous relationships. She is still friends with two men she dated in the past. I also have a few ex girlfriends/ex FWB’s I am still friends with as well, and she is not jealous of them at all. However, this one guy gives me very bad “vibes”.August 25, 2015 at 8:21 am #84697
Yes, my friends in recovery all agree that her lack of concern is slightly troubling. I guess she may not think much of it since I have had a good amount of clean time.

I think you should just keep away from the friend, and express to your girlfriend what you are concerned about. In addition, if you feel able I would confront him directly about the drinking issue as well as his recent interest in getting to know you.
