Courteney Cox Warns Jennifer Aniston About Her Boyfriend

5

jennifer aniston and courtney coxIt seems like Jennifer Aniston and boyfriend Justin Theroux are going strong. They've been spotted wearing gold bands on their ring fingers, shopping for a house together, and vacationing as a couple in Hawaii. I'm thrilled about it -- I want Jen to be happy, so sue me -- but apparently Courteney Cox is not so wild about Justin. She kinda thinks he's a bad egg, that he's just trying to further his career in Hollywood by attaching his name with Jen's.

Well, that's not good, now is it. If your best friend doesn't approve of your boyfriend, would it sway you one way or another?

It would for me. If my besties confronted me with legit reasons why my boyfriend is a dud, then I think I'd have no choice but to open my ears and listen. I'd probably end up thanking them later for yanking the wool off that was covering my eyes.

That's the thing about love/infatuation/lust -- it can make you blind. Not in that hairy-palms kind of way, but in a way that it only lets you see the good. It's a nice way to look at things, but it's unrealistic, and in the end, it could be dangerous. We have friends to support us and laugh with us, but sometimes we need them as a reality checker when we ourselves have been blinded by the hot dude in the leather jacket. Or conversely, the hot girl in the red dress. Love-blindedness knows no gender.

It's up to the dater to choose whether or not to listen to their friends, but it's still our duty as friends to speak the truth -- then be supportive when our advice is ignored. Eventually, the dating couple might break up, and when that happens, it shouldn't be all "I told you so's" and eye-rolls. Compassion is a key part of friendships and shouldn't be neglected just because our advice wasn't taken.

So hopefully these rumors about Courteney hating Justin aren't true, but if they are, I hope Jen listens to her BFF and eventually sees the light.

Has one of your friends ever dated a guy you disapproved of?

My BFF is married to a guy I can't stand. I didn't like him when they married 9 years ago and I still don't like him now.  I'm not alone though - her parents and her cousin, whom she's close to and who is also a friend of mine can't stand him either.  He's rude, obnoxious and leaves her alone all the time while he's off at the shooting club. Of course, she loves him and doesn't see that she deserves someone so much better than him so looks like I'll be stuck with him for the rest of my life too. I did try to get along with him but just 2 weeks ago, he made a sarcastic remark to one of my very innocent questions about their dining furniture. I've stopped talking to him - I don't have to be friendly with him, I just need to be civil with him for her sake.


On a separate note, have we actually heard anything straight out from either JenA's or CourtCox's mouths?! If not, how do we know there is any truth to all these stories?!  All we know is that JenA and Justin Theroux are dating and that's only thanks to some photos of the 2 of them together. We don't know the details and the truth to any of these so let's stop jumping to conclusions.

I hope this is a fake story.   But  I will respect Jen's life if I were Jen's best friend.  Jen is a 40's mature women.  She will know if Jusin is the right person to her, or not..
