Relationships in Stranger Things
Mike had a healthy but somewhat strained relationship with his mother. He knew that Karen was always there to comfort and protect him. However, he disobeyed her orders to not go looking for Will and frequently lied to her. He also did not trust her to handle the situation surrounding Eleven. Karen appeared frustrated that both Mike and Nancy seemed unwilling, to be honest, and open with her.
Mike and Ted did not appear to have the strongest relationship. Ted was often at work and so had less time to spend with his son.
Mike and Nancy were hinted to have been closer when they were younger; Nancy would dress up for some of Mike’s early D&D campaigns. However, the two drifted apart, likely due to the large age gap between them and the fact that they attended different schools. Nancy was often dismissive of her brother, calling him “gross” and a “douchebag”, and in turn, Mike was dismissive of her relationship with Steve Harrington.
Mike and Eleven developed a special relationship in the six days they knew each other. He allowed her to stay at his house, provided meals for her every day and also built a pillow fort for her in his basement.
Mike and Lucas lived next door to each other for most of their childhoods and quickly became best friends. However, this friendship was tested following the disappearance of Will and the arrival of Eleven.
Mike met Dustin in the fourth grade, long after meeting Lucas and Will. Despite this, Mike very much considered Dustin to be his best friend too. Dustin was level-headed with Mike, being supportive of him and Eleven while also willing to call him out on any questionable behavior.
Mike and Will met each other on their first day of kindergarten, becoming very close friends. Mike approached Will while he was on a swing set and asked to be his friend, which Will agreed to. He later described this as the best thing that he had ever done.
Mike and his friends first met Max Mayfield when Mr. Clarke introduced her to the class. While Dustin and Lucas grew curious about her since she had beaten Dustin’s high score on Dig Dug, Mike wasn’t interested in her and was much reluctant to let her join the Party.
