Love advice is best taken lightly, if at all. Thankfully, our friends and families are armed with truckloads of it!


Setting Up A Hollywood Romance

| Sacramento, CA, USA | Advice, Flirting/How We Met, Popular

(My girlfriend and I have been dating for seven years. We’d known each other through a friends group for a while. Our friends had always thought we had a thing.)

Friend #1: *through group text* “We should go to a movie!”

Friend #2: “Ya! We should see [Popular New Movie].”

Friend #3: “Ya! Let’s go on [Day two days from now].”

Almost-Girlfriend: “Sounds fun!”

Me: “Sounds great!”

(The next day Friend #3 texts this.)

Friend #3: “Sorry, can’t go to movie! Going to my grandparents.”

(It’s one day away from the movie when Friend #2 texts.)

Friend #2: “Super sorry, it’s my mom’s birthday! Completely forgot; can’t go to movie.”

(It comes the day of the movie. My almost-girlfriend and I are there talking.)

Almost-Girlfriend: “Where’s [Friend #1]?”

Me: “I don’t know. Maybe there’s traffic?”

(We then get a text from my friend.)

Friend #1: “Got in a car accident; can’t get there. You two have fun. ;-)”

(We’re confused as for why he used a winky face, but see the movie together and forget about it. The next week we’re all together.)

Friend #1: “So, how was the movie, you two?”

(As he asks this he winks. My almost-girlfriend and I look at each other.)

Almost-Girlfriend: “Um, it was actually really good!”

Me: “It sucks you guys couldn’t come.”

(All three of our friends smirked and looked at each other, and then explained that they had planned to get us together. Not long after that we started dating. Thank god I made it to that movie, or I would have missed the most wonderful girl in the world.)


Antisocial Media

| Mays Landing, NJ, USA | Advice, Popular

(I’m talking to my friend, who has a crush on a girl.)

Me: “Wait, so you found out her phone number, Kik, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr without speaking to her once? Don’t you think you might be coming off as a bit creepy?”

Friend: “It’s not creepy if I’m in love. You don’t understand.”

(She rejected him.)


Skipped The Relationship And Went Straight To Marriage

| MD, USA | Advice, Crush, Popular

(My best friend and I spend almost all our time together for more than a year, but nothing romantic is going on (yet). I am male; she is female.)

Me: *talking to my mom on the phone* “Yeah, my friends joke that she’s my girlfriend. And about half the church seems to be under the impression that we’re married, even though we don’t hug or kiss or hold hands or anything like that.”

Mom: “That’s probably why they think you’re married!”
