BOYFRIEND 1.0 is relatively new software and as such, it may be incompatible with any Girls Night Out software you may have running. Girls Night Out should run fine in the background if you install Drinking Buddies 1.0 and make sure it interfaces with your Boyfriend software.
Please be aware that the Boyfriend running in conjunction with DrinkingBuddies may cause sound problems on your system. It is advised to remove any Football or Hockey programs you may have installed previously, as the Boyfriend software has known performance issues when run at the same time as these other programs.
As you know, Boyfriend software is written in a proprietary language and thus the source code is uninterpretable. Do not panic. This is intentional. You will eventually come to understand the programming of Boyfriend 1.0 once you have invested sufficient time and energy in interpreting the output data.
Whatever you do, do not install Committment and Moving In patches until you are ready to upgrade to Husband 1.0, because installing these patches will necessiate the upgrade. Husband 1.0 has its advantages, such as the FreeSex feature. However, it also has disadvantages, such as the InLaws feature, which will annoy you with automatic popups that cannot me disabled.
P.S. Watch out for viruses from the K-I-D-S series because these have an insatiable appetite for memory and CPU time over and above everything else.
