In news that probably isn't going to surprise many of you, most men would rather hang out with their mates than their missus.
As a woman, I can pretty much confirm this. As I'm an especially irritating person, I've been sacked off for much less than best buds. In fact, here's a handy list of things my exes binned me for:
- picking up weed
- a darts competition
- hanging out with his ex
- helping his mum pick out new garden furniture
Yeah, it's not great for the old ego by any means. Little tip, if you're going to ditch your gf to go to the arrows - lie. Just... lie.
A new study has shown that 6/10 fellas would rather hang out with their pals than their significant other, which makes sense. With your crew, they're not going to scream at you for leaving your shoes in the middle of the living room. And if they do, you can leave. They're not then going to text you a 500-word essay on why you're selfish and rude and they don't need you in their life. But, once again, if they do - you can drop them. I know you can always dump your partner but it's just so much more difficult.
Carnivore Club surveyed 2,000+ American men. The results also showed that more than half of those polled said they spend more time laughing with their best buddy than they do with their significant other.
Unsurprisingly, the results also indicated that partners often feel threatened by friendships. However, for the ladies reading it's probably prudent to mention that 36 percent of men would consider breaking up with their partner if they did not approve of their bff.
Oh snap. So even if you hate them, just pretend.
