Why you should consider taking advice from single people!5:46:00 PM
When you ask the question "Do you take dating/relationship advice from single people," I'm almost certain of the response. Many people say something to the effect of "heck no, if you can't maintain a relationship of your own how could you possibly help me." I completely get it, but is it possible that we could be looking at this all wrong?
Now think about this, singles (whom at some point were most likely not single) have endured some experiences that have taught them many different lessons. From those situations they've gained knowledge that can be beneficial. I don't know about you, but I don't see anything wrong with learning from the mistakes of others.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm in no way saying that you should take advice from everyone. Use discernment when deciding who to listen to. It's common sense that you wouldn't internalize suggestions from someone who's bitter and immature, right? In most cases those people are speaking from a place of hurt or lack. I'm referring to those individuals who are rational and understanding, people you've seen grow from their challenges. They've messed up, acknowledged it and attempted to make changes for the better. These are the folk who have invaluable insight that may resonate with your situation. Their current relationship status doesn't negate their wisdom.
Dating is all about trial and error. Figuring out what does and does not work for you and your partner. I've learned to filter the information that I receive and apply it where I see fit. Don't be so quick to dismiss people.
