While some relationship advice is good in certain circumstances and bad in others, some tips are simply misguided and rarely end up having a positive effect on those who try them out.
From ridiculous notions about what love is and about any kind of relationship being better than a single status, here’s the worst relationship advice ever, that you shouldn’t use or recommend to anyone you care about.
The romantic notion of “the one” is just as real as fairytales, but many people continue to believe that they’ll find someone with 100% compatibility. Many happy and successful relationships start out with a negative first impression, so look for someone who shares your most important values and who makes you smile. You might not know he’s your Prince Charming until you’ve been together for months.
One of the worst relationship advice ever, the idea that a man is a crafts project that can be improved rarely leads to any kind of happiness for either partner. Even if he’s willing to change for you, focus on the stuff that matters to you most and that doesn’t include forcing him to change a fundamental part of his personality for you.
