For some reason, it seems like my friends go through relationship choices simultaneously. Like sorority sisters who mysteriously sync up their cycles, I will receive a call from one friend on Monday announcing her engagement and by the end of the week I will have penciled in two more engagement parties or been privy to a secret proposal plan via a sweet boyfriend. Unfortunately, though, the trend seems to go the other way as well. Recently, I discovered within a weekend that three long-term couples I knew and truly liked broke up, all for various reasons. I am not one to believe that things come in threes, but I would be lying if I said those events don't make me think twice. Usually it at least causes me to step back and take a mental gage of my relationship health.
When it comes to your friends in relationships--or those that are single--do their actions influence you?
