Boys vs Girls
The Rub: His friends are of the perpetually loud, perennially annoying variety, while he thinks your friends are snooty and chismosa. You both think your own friends rock, while the other's buddies are a bad influence. So should any one of you ditch your barkada for each other?
The Solution: A clique will often reflect one's own personality. So if you really like a guy, chances are some, if not most, traits of his personality are shared by his friends. And the same goes for you too! Don't judge your guy's friends too quickly. Take time to get to know them and ask him to spend time with your pals as well. If that doesn't work, the best thing to do is to both make an objective list of reasons why you don't like each other's friends, and then discuss your lists openly and rationally. Seeing the reasons in black and white might make you realize that some of your arguments are not really that serious after all.
