People Share The Best Dating Advice They've Ever Received


You don't need me to tell you that dating isn't easy. And while people are full of dating advice, they're not always full of advice that works for you. But there are some words that stick with us. So, I asked people for the best dating advice ever. If it's helped them, maybe it can also help the rest of us.

Of course, though, since everyone is different, not all of this may apply to you. In fact, the best advice I've probably ever gotten is to make decisions in relationships according to what my values, desires, and deal-breakers are. This empowers me to make decisions others may disagree with and even be baffled by, like breaking up with someone my friends like or staying with someone my family hates. And it forces me to stay in touch with what I want rather than taking the easy road and doing what other people want me to do.

Why am I sharing advice, then? Because, using your own goals as a guide, you can read through it and decide what can and can't help you get what you want. And then, you can follow the advice that's helpful to you.

So, here are some of the best pieces of dating advice people have ever received.
