We just cannot imagine our lives without our friends. They are what makes every occasion a happy one. They provide a rock-solid support through tough times and help us sail through many a break-ups. They have seen the good, bad and worse sides of us, but still choose to stay by our sides.
Friends can be the best thing in the world. but at times, they can be the worst too.
Jealousy can be very dangerous. It can turn friendship into hostility in no time. Things like a promotion at work or raise in salary can suddenly make your friendship turn unpleasant. It is human nature to want things the other person own. But things may turn ugly when your friend will just try to influence you into taking wrong decisions, but sometimes even the best of friends can turn out to be real backstabbers, at least when it comes to love.
If you find yourself breaking up from seemingly perfect relationships all the time, perhaps, you need to ask yourself if your friends played a bigger part than you first imagined
So, here are seven concrete signs of friends who are trying to destroy your relationship. Take a look…
1. They never let you and your partner spend time alone:
When you have bosom friends you obviously share all your plans with them. They will take advantage of this and make all efforts to destroy your plans by dropping by at the same place you are with your partner. They will also insist on joining you. That’s the definite end of a perfect date you planned for your partner.
2. They always advise you to break-up:
When you have a small misunderstanding with your partner, you ask your friends for advice on how to make things better. But instead they just treat it as an opportunity and tell you it’s your partner’s fault and you need to break-up with him/her immediately. If it sounds strange to you, it probably is. Do not listen to them and follow your instincts.
3. They always talk ill about your partner:
Are your friends always talking ill about your partner? Do they always bring up their downside and mistakes in front of you? This usually means that they are trying to make you resent your partner and prevent things from getting serious. If you find that the discussion between your friends is about your partner again, just walk off and let them know that you will not be participating in their vain discussion.

4. They advise you to cheat:
This is the terrible thing your friend can do to you. Knowing too well that you are in a serious and sweet relationship and are planning to take things to the next level, if your friends advise you to start seeing someone else, they are crossing the borderline. This is the terrible and wicked advice your friends can give you, as they know that if you are caught, your relationship will come to an end. They may even insist upon you to have a one-night stand. Do not be foolhardy to listen to them.
5. They will try to woo your partner behind your back:
Friends who try to woo your partner behind your back are the worst kind friends. If your friend tries to put you down, or calls up your lover and speaks for hours when you are not around, there’s a good chance that your friend is looking for ways to break both of you up and enter the picture.
Friends will never try to steal your partner away from you, especially when they know that you guys are pretty serious about each other.
6. They will bring the worst side of you:
Your friends should be able to bring out the best and positive side of you. But they are always trying to bring out the worst in you by doing things that will make you angry. They know you too well and will definitely use this to their advantage and make fun of you in front of your partner.
7. They are always making fun of your choice of partner:
No matter how good looking or intelligent your partner is, your friends never seem to like them. It will just discourage you to enter into relationships again. Do not depend on your friends’ approval of your partner. If you like each other, that’s all you need. There should be no space for a third wheel between you.
