Dr. LoveMy sister has a friend who keeps sending me messages asking me out for coffee. She's two years older than me, and so is he. I told her about it once and she asked me to stay away from him, saying he was a flirt who simply liked going out with as many girls as possible. I think I like him though, and I'm not sure why. I'm afraid that, if I agree to go out with him, he will break my heart but, at the same time, I don't want to regret not going out just because my sister warned me. Should I go? My sister will never forgive me for doing this, but I really want to just see what he's like.

There's probably a very good reason why your sister is trying to protect you from someone. If you think she'll be upset about this, but you want to meet this boy nonetheless, I'm not sure what you hope to accomplish. Meeting new people is fine if you think they have something to offer or will have a positive influence on you. Meeting someone who you have been warned about only makes sense for people who like punishment for some reason. I'm not sure why you want to do it but, as an adult, it's your choice entirely. I don't understand what exactly you will regret. You risk hurting yourself, annoying your sister and accomplishing nothing of importance. Then again, it's your life.

Is there something I can do to convince my girlfriend not to comment on our relationship with her friends? I feel as if they give her bad advice and I want them to stop. This is hurting us, but I don't think she gets it.

They are her friends, and presumably have her best interests at heart. You may not agree with what they say, but they have a right to say it, just as she has a right to accept or disregard anything they tell her.
