It seems like everyone -- from our mothers to our friends to even Dr. Phil -- has a gem or two about how we can improve our love lives. Or, in some cases, how we can jump-start them. There are books about the topic (this book is one of my favorites...) and is the subject of many a romantic comedy. We can't always count of said advice working or even if we'll agree with it, but one thing will never change: When it comes to all things love, the advice well will surely, most definitely never run dry.
And most of the time, people offer up advice with the best of intentions. After all, they do have our best interest at heart, don't they? But sometimes, the advice that comes after that classic phrase "Well, if you want my advice..." is just a little, well, wacky. For me, a few friends have suggested that I try online dating, but that prospect scares me. I suppose I'm still a bit old-school and a bit weary of the whole online-dating thing. Like I'll-end-up-with-a-creepy-stalker-who-sends-me-secret-love-notes-made-out-of-newspaper-letters scary. A few people have also suggested that I stick to dating only people with disabilities, as that would just be easier. I've never been able to wrap my head around that one. In love, just like in life, nothing is ever easy. I'm not expecting it to be, either.
So, friends, I'd love to know: What's the wackiest piece of dating advice you've received over the years? Who gave you the advice? How did you respond? Did the advice ultimately turn out to be helpful or just plain weird? xoxo
