I was just reading an article on The Frisky about dating advice. Now, I have to say of all the real and online magazines aimed at women the Frisky is IMO one of the worst. The writing itself isn't bad, it's the content that consistently borders on the inane to just flat out wretched. Miracuously this time they got it right. Most dating advice is not only contradictory but flat out bad. So let's hear it, what is the worst or most contradictory dating advice you have ever heard from friends and family? I used to get a lot of: "You have to learn to love yourself first." "Be yourself" "You're too nice, be a bitch. Men love bitches." "Stop looking for The One, that's when you will find him." This always comes from somebody who has been blissfully married for 10, 20, 50 years. e.g. someone who has forgotten how to date. :tongue: "You should get a weave." "You should just cut your hair short and wear it natural in an afro." "Wear big clunky earrings, men like shiny things" "Just wear diamond studs, cause men like shiny things." "Hang out at sporting events, cause men like sports and women who like sports." "Only date professional men i.e. doctors, lawyers, dentists, chiropractors" "Only date men who graduated from Big 10 or Ivy League schools" "Only date men who are blue collar workers"
