When we need relationship advice – which is almost always the case – we tend to seek it out from our friends, family members, and sometimes experts. However, not all “tips” are great and not all relationships are equal.
What worked pretty well for other couples may actually ruin your relationship. So before accepting any advice, make sure to think it through, and always trust your guts.
To illuminate your way through the rocky path of relationships, do not follow these popular 40 pieces of advice that are known to be good while they’re actually terrible!
1Living together is a great way to test your future relationship
In fact, couples rarely have a flawless experience when living together, so it’s easy to assume that your relationship is doomed after facing some difficulties.
According to the marriage educator Patty Newbold, healthy, happy couples build their relationship skills when dealing with the little differences so that they’re well-prepared for the big ones, such as illnesses, losses, career changes, and childrearing challenges.
2Play hard to get
In most cases, playing hard to get means zero chances for a dating experience, leading both of you to a lonely road. The dating world is fast and furious, meaning that only a few individuals actually have enough time to keep on pursuing someone who is ignoring them.
So you may want to stop playing these meaningless games and if you’re interested then just show it. Life is complicated enough already!
