My fiancé has all guy friends, and I’ve noticed since the beginning that they all kinda treat him like the pack mule and really just like the little b of the group. It sounds bad but it’s true.
They expect him to do whatever they want, when they hang out, he’s expected to always bring drinks and gets ragged on when he doesn’t (even if they never bring drinks).
They make mean comments about him to his face under the guise of “jokes” and he’s even told me sometimes they hurt his feelings.
I’ve even had other people tell me they’ve always kinda treated him like that and were kinda mean to him. They’ve been friends for years, like middle school.
I guess I’m just curious. Is that normal in guy friendships? It just seems unhealthy to me, but I have never been in that situation.
Is this behavior typical in male friendships?
