When it comes to other people’s love lives, everyone has an opinion. Whether or not these opinions are any good is another story. Here are some of the worst men/relationship tips I’ve heard:
“Maybe he just lost your number.” It’s not exactly cold-hearted to try and keep a friends hopes up about a guy who hasn’t called her yet. But I try to avoid saying this for the sake of keeping it at least somewhat real-how often does the missing number/phone thing actually happen??
“He loves his family-that’s why he won’t move out of his mother’s house.” Statements like this come from someone who’s more scared of hurting your feelings then confirming your instincts about a potential red flag. Watch for the friend who has impossibly high standards herself but would probably defend Osama bin Laden to you as a relationship choice.
