It can be tough if your friends don't like your partner. You may feel caught in the middle, and it can be difficult to know what to do. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • It's possible that your friends just need more time to get used to him or her.
  • Talk with them about how they might have felt if you had dated someone of their race or religion first.
  • Be patient with them and try not to take their opinions personally—after all, they're entitled to their opinion of your relationship just as much as you are!

If you're struggling, here are a few things to remember. First, some people prefer not to have their close friends date someone they don't approve of or get along with.
Second, if your friends disapprove of your partner because they don't see them as good enough for you, then there is probably nothing that will change their minds.
