If you haven’t taken the opportunity to bookmark the r/Relationship_Advice subreddit, you should, particularly if you’re at our online divorce site looking for the best way out of your current marriage. After all, no one wants to be alone forever, and there are tips there that will help you in future relationships. Here are some of the more interesting we’ve come across. You’re not going to read all these in a self-help book, and some may not ring as true as others (or at all). It does offer compelling insight into the world of dating, though. Let’s get started.
1. “Never date a girl who hates her dad.”
2. “Never have intercourse on the first date.”
3. “Do not get back together with someone you’ve broken up with.”
4. “Never date someone who does not have at least one good friend who they can talk to, about whatever’s going on in their life.”
5. “I go into every relationship knowing full well that it could end in heartbreak, but I give it my all despite that in order to learn and grow from every person I am with.”
6. “There can be no selfishness in a relationship. Relationships work best when both sides are happy and fair, this could mean: She gives you sex, you give her sex alternatives. He spends all his free time with you, you allow him some private time. He cooks, cleans, and takes care of you, you take care of him the same way. He doesn’t demand, you shouldn’t either. He tells you everything, you should too.”
7. “Go to sleep at roughly the same hours each evening if possible. Excluding nights when you go out.”
8. “Love is giving someone the power to hurt you and hoping they dont use it!!”
9. “Personal grooming is more than making sure you don’t stink. Supercuts aren’t. Spend the money to get a haircut from a stylist, even if you can only afford it every three months with trims by lesser places in between. Make observations on what he’s doing. Learn how to take care of your nails. Go with said friend to find a cologne that works for you, and wear it whenever you go out.”
10. “Learn how to be interesting in a wide variety of situations. I know how to juggle with a few basic tricks for times that a party needs to be jumpstarted, or a group of kids needs to be entertained briefly. I keep a 1-inch deep knowledge of popular music and culture so as to be able to comment in light conversation. Others learn how to tell a story (I admit, I’m not as great at this as I would like.) Always say yes to a new experience so that you can pull it out in conversations.”
11. “Have three simple dishes you have practiced.”
