3 False Dating Cliches
Ah, to be single. You can treat it two ways: enjoy it and discover yourself, or mope and hate your life. Either way, it’s no fun being talked to in that condescending tone by those in a relationship, who somehow think that being coupled up makes them better than those who aren’t.
These “dating gurus” will always hand out “sage advice,” usually in lame little quips that we’ve all heard a million times. So if you’re single- don’t listen to these cliches, and if you’re in relationship, don’t force these on your single friends.
1) There are plenty of fish in the sea
Yes, we are fully aware of this fact. I might be a little lonely, but I am not oblivious to the massive population of the city, state, hell, EARTH around me. Using this little cliche is like telling someone who is afraid of heights that the ground is huge! Thanks for the advice, but no thanks.
2) You’re too picky!
Never true. Compromising what you truly want in a person is the only mistake you’ll make. Telling someone they’re too picky just sounds like a thinly veiled “you can’t do any better.”
3) Your time will come.
Thank you, Nostradamus, but the last thing single people want to hear is you telling them some “fact” about their love life. We’d much rather figure it out ourselves, thank you.
