It’s common to see women who have friends who sabotage their relationships. A woman finds a man she likes. Her friends all weigh in to say he’s not good enough for her.
I’m not talking about women in their 20’s. I am talking about women in their 30’s and 40’s and 50’s.
It’s true, a woman can get involved with a man who is not that great. But sometimes the woman’s friend undermines a new relationship with a good man, because she’s afraid the gal will partner and leave her behind.
When two single women are friends and one marries, the other often is left behind. Priorities change. The women might have prowled together. When one of them partners, they lose that connection.
Other times, the friend is left behind, because she can’t or won’t stop bad-mouthing the man that her friend has grown to love.
Women who are fixed (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) don’t tend to have this problem because no one is going to steer them off a course they choose.
But if a woman has Libra (struggles to decide) or Virgo (tends to worry) or if she is one of the other mutable signs, Gemini, Sagittarius or Pisces, then friends like this can have a enormous effect and it’s not always positive.
Do you have a friend, motivated to keep you single?
