i had this friend who loves this person so much that she settled being no. 2. Right now the couple already parted ways and this friend of mine is still with the guy. The hard part is, they are in an open relationship. She always comes to me and telling me that she'd had enough of being taken for granted, that she's tired of being treated like that ( boy always denies that my friend is his GF ). I always tell her its her fault.. that she settled to a relationship like that. She said she just cant go on life without the guy ( which is totally absurd! . Right now i distanced myself from her because i dont want to see her be treated that way. i always tell her to love yourself first before loving someone...would you agree?

I don't know that you have to "love" yourself. However you sure do need to "RESPECT" yourself & "expect" others to respect you too. Your girlfriend's lover will NEVER respect her if she doesn't insist on it!!! Since he's telling others that she's not his girlfriend, it sounds as though he's just using her until something better comes along. NO good can come out of her relationship...Especially as long as she allows him to keep using her!!!! Her heart is going to be broken somewhere along the way & she is going to NEED a good friend!!!!!!
