The Secret to Surviving a Night out with Her Friends.

So you’re out at the bar with your girlfriend, and you suddenly realize you’re way outnumbered in the gender department. She’s laughing it up with her ladyfriends, and you’re likely bored to tears with the relationship jabber about people you’ve never met. Whatever you do, DO NOT LET YOUR BOREDOM SHOW.

It’s okay that you’re not having the time of your life. She appreciates that you can stick it out with the girls every now and then. She wants to show you off anyways. So resist the temptation to text your friends and whatever you do, do not, we repeat, DO NOT let your eyes get fixated on that flat screen above the bar.

So what should you do? It’s actually dead simple. You don’t have to say a word, or contribute a single man-opinion. Just do your best to actually listen. If your mind drifts away just make sure you’re injecting the occasional nod or eyebrow raise and you should be in the clear…

Now here’s the secret, you amazing boyfriend, you: Buy her and her friends a round.

Don’t even ask the girls if they’d like another round of strawberry mango margaritas. Simply keep an eye on their drink levels. For sure, as the emotions run high, the drinks will run low. “I mean how dare Ryan cheat on Rachel?! What was he thinking?!” This is your chance to drift away and then swoop in with another round of lemon drop martinis, on you, Boyfriend of the Year. Cut to swooning girlfriend and back-up swooners.

Even the most independent women like to be taken care of now and then, and she’ll love that you’re watching over her group.

So next time you’re bro-less at the bar, you know what to do. Cheers!
