Dear GiGi: My Boyfriend Always Invites His Pal on Date Night

GiGi the Boston Terrier dispenses tough love advice to people (and pups) with relationship trouble. Caution: This is one sassy little bitch.

Dear GiGi,

My boyfriend’s best friend is a decent guy who’s fun to hang around with. But my boyfriend invites him out with us all the time, and I’m getting sick of it.

Last week we were supposed to have a romantic date night for just the two of us, but when I got to the restaurant, Best Buddy was sitting there at the table, too.

My boyfriend thinks I’m overreacting, but I’m tired of sharing his attention. So, help! What would you do, O Wise One?

Dear Poppin’ Wheelies,

This is just weird. I’m a big fan of running in packs, but not on date night!

Either your boyfriend and his “buddy” are more than just friends, or he’s just a little tired of hanging out with you on his own — OR his friend is blackmailing him and the only way for him to keep his secret is to let him hang out with you guys all the time! That’s probably it. Sounds like his friend has a massive crush on you. I’d pursue that!

Glad I could help!
