It is common knowledge that relationships aren’t without problems. However, there are some issues that may appear crazier than others.
Currently trending on social media are the screenshots of a conversation between a man and his girlfriend in which she asked permission to hang out with his friend.
According to her, he is always unavailable due to the fact that he works a lot and having gotten bored of staying at home, she thought it okay to ask his friend to take her out. She however, wanted to find out if he was okay with the arrangement.
Judging from his responses, the boyfriend was clearly not pleased with her decision to hang out with his friend but probably thought it wise not to push the issue.
See screenshots of their conversation below:

While many people blamed him for his poor communication skills or lack thereof, others tagged his girlfriend a manipulative person.
See reactions below:
First and foremost, b4 you come here n say he should have said his mind, I wee e-slap you. Girls dt do this are highly manipulative, you don’t need to ask if he would be okay with it. She knows he won’t be okay, n if d guy says his mind, next thing is guilt trip.

Wait! She doesn’t have friends? Kindly leave my friends alone they are busy people. I don’t share friends, go find your own friend! 🤣

In my opinion he could have handled it better. If he wasn’t cool with that he should have simply said so.
Boundaries should be set in relationships & people should use their common sense more often.
In conclusion, they’re both immature.

You would have let your displeasure known, you don’t want her to go then tell her, some of us don’t understand sign languages🙄 Adult should start learning how to communicate. In other news, watch your back your friend is sleeping with your girl. He might poison you✌🏾✌🏾

I hate relationships that lacks communication… what’s stopping you from letting her know you’re not cool with her hanging out with your friend? Why won’t she hang out with your friend when you don’t even create time for her .

That friend is a very useless friend. He should be the one to tell the guy that his babe hit him up that she’s bored and wants to take her out.
My friend takes my babe out and I don’t see no big deal in it but my friend tell me before hand and babe also seek consent too.

He did the right thing. If she is making such request, it is because she has made up her mind. Whether he consent or not, she would still go. This scenario is too common.
Let her go. It is up to you to decide whether there is still a relationship for her to return to.

The girl doesn’t respect him at all. She even has the mind to tell him that she wants to go out with his friend 🤦🏼♀️
