My best friend has been divorced for a little over a year and has been living with her boyfriend of a year. Because we are best friends, she tells me all the good and bad in their relationship. He is a great looking guy, but doesn't treat her so well. She is one of the sweetest people I have met, and is always willing to help others. Often, I think she gets taken advantage of by her b-f. He is a game player- wanting her to be at his beck and call, but when she asks for anything she has to wait until he is ready. From what she has told me, and from what I have seen, her needs and feelings get put on the back burner. His personal things and friends come before her. Anyway, a guy that she has known for many years recently divorced and he and my friend ran into each other at the grocery store. His wife had been physically abusive to and had cheated on him. I have met this person, and he is great looking, amazing sweet and very affectionate to my friend. He seems to treat her like she is the only person in the room. She confessed that she and he had been out to dinner a couple of times, but there was no sex or physical contact with the exception of a friendly kiss goodnite. She asked me what I thought about this, and I am kind of at a loss. It's great to see her so happy and being treated good. I only said that she couldn't keep both relationships going. I'm unsure as to why she would stay with her current b-f, but she seems to have a hard time with the idea of breaking things off with him. What should I tell her? Thank you!
