    I've been friends with my closest friend for almost six years. I love her like she's my sister and we're incredibly close. However, there is a problem, every single boy she chooses is just fundamentally wrong for her and her relationships end badly, leaving me to pick up the pieces (don't get me wrong I don't mind being there for her). Her most recent boyfriend is the worst so far and, though I’ve promised myself not to get involved (because she gets defensive and angry), I'm worried about him,his dominant nature and the pressure that he’s putting on her. Am I being overprotective and stupid? Or do I have the right to worry about her? Does anyone have any good advice?

    I think the best you can do in this situation is get her on her own and explain to her, why, as a friend you're worried about this guy. Or get one of her other close friends who don't bring up the subject every time. Just make sure she knows she can always come talk to you.
    Whatever she decides to do, be there for her, and don't be like " I told you so" if it falls apart - which i'm sure you wont.
    Good luck.
