The Most Outrageous Relationship Advice We've Ever Received (And Why It's So Terrible)

The Most Outrageous Relationship Advice We've Ever Received

Relationship advice is everywhere we look - from well-meaning friends and family to self-proclaimed "experts" on the internet. But some of the advice we've received over the years has been downright outrageous (and not in a good way). Here are some examples of the most ridiculous relationship advice we've ever received, along with why it's so terrible:

  1. "Just put up with it." This gem of advice was given to us when we complained about our partner's annoying habits. While it's true that no one is perfect, it's not healthy to just "put up with" behavior that is consistently negative or hurtful.

  2. "Don't argue, just agree." This advice suggests that the key to a happy relationship is to avoid conflict at all costs. However, healthy communication and the ability to resolve conflicts is crucial for a strong and lasting relationship.

  3. "Change yourself to make them happy." This advice is often given with the best intentions, but the reality is that you can't (and shouldn't) change who you are to make someone else happy. It's important to be true to yourself and find a partner who values and loves you for who you are.

  4. "You should be able to read each other's minds." While it would certainly be convenient, the idea that you should be able to magically know what your partner is thinking or feeling is ridiculous. Communication is key to any healthy relationship, and it's important to actively listen and express your own thoughts and feelings.

  5. "Never go to bed angry." While it's certainly not a good idea to go to bed with unresolved conflicts, it's also not realistic to expect that every argument will be resolved in one evening. Sometimes it's necessary to take a break and come back to the conversation when both parties are more level-headed.

In conclusion, it's important to be skeptical of any outrageous relationship advice that comes your way. Trust your own judgment and what feels right for you and your relationship. And remember, a little humor never hurt anyone - especially when it comes to ridiculous relationship advice!
