Q & A: "How can I tell my current boyfriend that his female friend is using him for money?"

Name: Sherrie
Question: How can I tell my current boyfriend that his female friend is using him for money without seeming jealous?

Hi Sherrie,

Explain it to him that you're bringing this up because you care for him and not because it's HER, so to speak. Lay down the facts and show him the evidence to his face. Also see if you can solicit a third party (Another friend, family member, etc.) to also chime in on the situation so he doesn't think it's just your "jealous" opinion. Also, offer resolutions that he can enact to solve his own problem instead of just telling him to cut her from his life. If he feels that it's his decision, then he won't blame you later for ruining a friendship...Hope this helps, and best of luck to you! Have a safe holiday season...
