It looks like fighting for love just got a little more literal. As told by UsMagazine.comthe former Bachelorette star JJ Lane left the Men Tell All party with two black eyes after getting in a fight. The reality TV star tweeted a photo of his injuries on July 14th to another Bachelorette costar with the caption, “Bruh! It’s always an adventure hanging with you buddy.” According to some more tweets from Lane, he was jumped by a group of men after the reality TV special and went to the hospital to get checked out. A recent Instagram post shows that the 32 year old is recovering just nicely.

This ‘Bachelorette’ contestant isn’t fairing well. What do you if a friend gets in the way of your relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

Being able to hang out with your significant other and your close friends at the same time is great. However, sometimes you and your friends need some space in order to allow your relationship and love to grow. Here is Cupid’s relationship advice on how to handle a friend getting in the way of your relationship:

1. Time apartBe honest with your pals and let them know that there are going to be times when you and your beau need to spend time alone. Often times they will understand and won’t get hurt when you don’t invite them to everything.

2. Set boundaries: A romantic relationship is just between your and your partner. Although it’s fine to tell your best friend everything about your love life or ask for advice, they shouldn’t be controlling your relationship. Listen to what they have to say, but in the end, how you act with your beau is your decision.
