@iarebridezilla:  …is that my Boyfriend or Best Friend you are describing? 😡 do we know eachother? 😉

In our situation, *I’m* usually the one that gives terrible “advice”.  We have a good male friend who is practically family.  GREAT guy, just got out of a long relationship and is slowly starting to date again.  He textd us to tell us he was on a date with a girl and it was NOT going well and he took her home early.  Well, a week later he texts my Boyfriend or Best Friend saying he’s giving her a second chance and would tell us how it went the next night when we hung out. 

When we met up and asked for the play-by-play, he said how he’s conflicted: he thinks she’s very sweet, but by the second date was showing some jealousy red flags.  I guess inbetween their first and second date, she texted him asking to hang out and he couldnt, didnt give specifics, just couldnt meet her that night.  Well, it was because he had plans with some male friends who checked him in on Facebook. RIGHT after they did, I guess she started texting him saying “Really? You blew me off to hang out with your friends? NOT cool.” etc.

So he says to us “the second date went better than the first, but I’m still thinking she might be the jealous type. I don’t know what to do.” 

My ‘advice’: “You should absolutely call her right now and have her come meet us. I need to see this girl in action.”

My boyfriends advice: “do *not* listen to her.  If you think she might be a handful, let her down easy and don’t continue it any further.”

I just wanted to see what all the fuss was about 😡

This isn’t relatiinship related advice, but still funny. One time my husband told me to wear a low cut shirt to an interview bc he said that would def get me the job.I am an auditor, so yeah, really conservative.

LOL this thread cracks me up! I can’t really think of any horrible relationship advice that my Boyfriend or Best Friend has given but I do remember him making inappropriate comments one time.

So my roommate dates a lot of guys. I mean, she always has a guy waiting in the wings lol. One night, she found out her old high school boyfriend was in town and she invited him over. Late at night. It was clearly a booty call lol. The next night, Boyfriend or Best Friend and I were hanging out with my roommate in the living room and just chilling. 

I asked my roommate how it went with her ex and if she thought they were gonna get back together.

Boyfriend or Best Friend looked up from his kindle, confused as to which guy we were talking about. I explained that it was her old high school boyfriend. Now, prior to this conversation, I had told Boyfriend or Best Friend that my roommate was planning to sleep with her ex. But my roommate didn’t know that I had told Boyfriend or Best Friend.  

And Boyfriend or Best Friend goes “Oh okay, the guy she banged last night.”

My roommate turns red and is clearly embarassed. I turn to Boyfriend or Best Friend and say “Omg, honey! Just…just be quiet.”

Boyfriend or Best Friend realized he put his foot in his mouth, immediately mumbled an apology and went back to his reading. 

Lol! Men. They are so funny sometimes.

@iarebridezilla:  Lol wow. Yeah, men giving terrible advice usually comes from their own experience. For example, it’s always funny to me when men say that the secret to a happy marriage is to agree with everything she says. If they say that, then obviously their relationship is not very equal. I would never want a marriage like that. 

Though I can sort of see why they said that about the toys thing. Boyfriend or Best Friend and I are moving in together in January but before that, he plans on buying a new game system to put in the living room. I’m glad he’s spending the money on that now because right now, it doesn’t affect us financially. But if he wanted to buy it after moving in together? We would have to cut back on fun stuff like eating out until he saved up the money for it. 

But I wouldn’t tell my Boyfriend or Best Friend a flat-out no! We would talk about it together and come to a decision together. Our relationship is equal.

@iarebridezilla:  Wow. Yeah obviously something is wrong with their marriages! That is crazy that they told your H that. 

Lol good thing you met your H now instead of when he was 22! He sounds like he definitely sowed his oats when he was younger 😉

Oh dear. 

My SO is a geek. He was talking to a female friend who was trying to determine if this guy she hangs out with in group activities is into her. SO told her she should be exactly like me and how I approached relationships. LMAO. While I did manage to snag SO, my past relationships were HORRIBLE and I made just gawd awful decisions. It was nice to hear that SO thought I was some relationship guru, though. 

(Apparently he meant that she had to be clear about her intentions because the guy is an engineer, and therefore probably fairly geeky himself. So… I guess I was a good example. I straight out TOLD SO he needed to kiss me on our next date because I was sick of it.)
