my friends relationship - November 12th 2015, 07:06 AM

I feel like I've complained about my best friend more often than not in this thread, and I have no intention to stop. I basically act as his conscience, protecting him from terrible ideas. He got pissed that I never agreed with his idiocy and left for a little while before coming back with a terrible, TERRIBLE idea. He wanted to take his other best friend's girlfriend of 6 years because he supposedly fell in love with her. His justification was the guy was working too much to be a good boyfriend. I didn't want to ruin his peace offering of asking my advice, so I just made it clear that this would snowball into a massive problem with huge consequences. He acknowledged that and took her anyway. But she broke up with the guy and didn't tell him about my friend, so they're in a secret relationship, and they went down to his cabin, where this whole facade almost exploded hilariously in his face; he trusted her best friend, the old girlfriend he dumped at my advice, to keep it a secret. we both laughed, because frankly, thats pretty hilarious. Now the girls family knows though, but still not the guy.
He's ignoring the upcoming calamity by smoking a weeks worth of weed with his friend to make him feel better, all without telling him. What should he do? And no, this isn't me disguising my identity by saying, "my friend". I am NOT this stupid.

Wish I lived in Canada. UPDATE, NOV. 9th, 2016: This statement has become even more appropriate.

Hey Robert,

I think as a friend you have advised this guy as much as possible, you've tried to steer him away from making a bad choice. I can understand how frustrating this must be, standing by and watching your friend making bad decisions. Ultimately, all you can do is advise your friend. If he chooses to go ahead and do these kinds of things all the time without consideration for the consequences then maybe he needs to find out what happens and learn a lesson that way. As a friend you can only advise. If someone wants to do something badly they are going to go and do it anyway. Maybe it will take for his friend to find out and for him to face the consequences to see that what he has done is not right and he is going to lose friends over this.

I get your frustration, you've tried to look out for your friend but he has to make his own choices and own mistakes and face up to them when there's trouble.

I wish you the best of luck and I'm here if you need to vent.
