Quite long i apologise.
My best friend is a man, I have known in all my life, right from Nigeria. We stayed in the same neighbourhood, went to the same university and even work in the same place but different floors. My family are so use to him that you might be forgiven for thinking he is one of us.
Problem is my man is not comfortable with him at all, which is causing friction between both of us (there was this time when my man went on and on and on about how I am cheating on him because I kiss my best friend on the lips to say hello & goodbye, and other little things like that. . . he is gay by the way)
I have done my best to try and make then friends or at least be civil with each other but all to no avail, I have tried barbecue, organised day out, even season tickets it just isn’t working.
My best friend is willing to be friends or at least civil with him but my man isn’t. I feel he is a bit homophobic even though he denies it.
I love both of them very much albeit in different ways and it really hurt when they cannot at least be civil with each other. We are now at the point where they avoid each other at all cause. E.g. my best friend didn’t come for my mum’s birthday just because Christian was going to be there.
To be honest it has been going on for a couple of years and I sort off overlooked it but since things are getting very serious between me and Christian I will like to nip it in the bud once and for all. What am I do? Any helpful suggestion on how can they be friends or at least comfortable in each others present will be appreciated thanks.
