5 Questions To Avoid When Talking About a Friend’s New Relationship

So your friend met someone new. And you’re so happy for her! You’re so happy, that you kind of want to sabotage it.

Just kidding. But you might sabotage it — or at least your chances of hearing more about it — if you ask any of the following questions:

  1. How much does he/she make?
  2. I hope he/she doesn’t do  _____ [insert problem that your friend's last partner had].
  3. What do you mean, you paid for the first date?
  4. Really? That’s what he/she likes to do? (Followed by hipster snort.)
  5. Do you think he/she will mind if I come along for the second date?
