One of the hardest things is to learn to communicate with the person closest to you, which should be the easiest. Before you discuss anything about your relationship with someone outside or let them begin a discussion about your relationship, discuss your issues with your significant other. And communicate not accuse.

Speaking from experience...it's simple misery loves company. Most people give bad advice about good relationships because of their jack up'd situations. Recently I was inviolved in a relationship with a girl that had six kids and barely any income at all, yet they wanted for nothing. Whether it was going out, having clothes, whatever. I consider myself to be a provider, but I'm still a man. Knowing what I do and did for this girl, her friends would still put salt in the game about how I might be cheating or why I have know reason to be upset about not having food when I get home from a long day of work. Or why do I need to go out on weekends, etc... Simply because she and or they were miserable and seeing someone who is a bad place (as far as not having a job with six kids) do so well because of the man that supports and takes care of her. People hate. Misery loves company, the envy what you have and what a piece for themselves or for no one at all. Not only that, but good advice comes through experience. No one can advise anyone about the hardships of a relationship that hasn't been through them theirselves and fought through it.

I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend going on eight years March 15th of next year. The biggest problem that I have is that my best friend happens to work for him. I have to watch what I say to her because she will go and run her mouth to her. I had a situation three weeks ago. My ex showed up at her other job asking how I was doing and if me and my boyfriend are still arguing like crazy. Now I ain't seen or spoken to this dude since I had broke up with him. Don't you know that she went back and told Marvin this crap. I happened to be visiting my mother and I get a phone call over this bs. I get confused as crap because Marvin called making it look like my ex called his job over this crap. Now I end up calling my friend and asking her if her man had said something to him, but come to find out it was her all along.

If women were to keep thier mouths shut and discuss their problem with the one who is causing them the problem then maybe people wouldn't have so much drama. But it seems like women especially black women seem to thrive on drama.

In my case I am the single one....but my three sisters and some brothers and family members or all up in the mix of others familys relationship...they sometimes keep alot of mess going on.....off the chain nosy. I usually tell them to stay out of it and its like talking to the wall....So I tell them ......what goes around comes around...so be careful of what you do and say....bad intentions...on their parts .......BUT if they would not invite them in they would'nt know.....In these situation you remain neutral.....lol...

I think that when you start talking to people about your relationship there is bound to be problems! And that is why me and my husband always pray about whats bothering us and then we come together to resolve the issue, Its better that way because when you share only with The Lord Our Savior you have less drama and no one meddling in your business!!

Hi! I'm a first timer on this site! I enjoy reading everyones comments!
~I'm young, the only girl, and I am very close to my mom. My guy, who is older, preaches this to me daily! I can forgive him if he does something, but once I tell friends or family, they never let it die!
*My motto: Just take it slow and take time alone to get a 'peace of mind'. Live.

I know all too well that those nosey people can hurt and potentially kill a relationship. They always had something negative to say about him, and not to mention that I shouldn’t have my son around him. I know that they meant well, but this time around I’ll let them say what they feel they need to say but I will never let them in on what’s really going on in my relationship. You live and you learn.

First of all..what ever goes on in my relationship is no ones bussiness.But for my friends and family they already know that I will hear them out ,but the last and final decision is mine to make. My grandmother didn't raise no fool.
