I am a single woman, trying to find a nice, honest guy.
I want to go on a date with a nice guy, but all my friends say he is not good looking enough, I can do better. But I really like him. They are really pressuring me to NOT go out with him.
He's A Great Guy
I recently met a nice, guy that is connected with my job. The first time we met, we were like old friends from 20 years ago. (For the past 4 months I have just talked to him on the phone.) He is not a nice looking man, but one of the nicest guys I know. Big heart, caring, honest.
My Friends Say He's Not Good Enough
He asked me out and we are going out in a few weeks, but my friends tell me he is not good enough for me, just because of his looks.
I don't think that is right. I want to get to know him and maybe date him. His personality overpowers his looks.
How do I tell my friends to back off, or should I?
