There’s always that one friend in your circle who is single since forever but becomes a relationship expert of the group.
Every committed person goes to them with their love problems and surprisingly, it’s only them who give the best solutions.
Regardless of how big the fight is or complicated the situation is, the ‘single forever’ friend is your go-to person who can come up with crafty and seamless solutions, despite having no or little experience in the dating world.
Ever wondered why single friends are a pro at giving relationship advice?
Whether you are them or you have run to them for your dating problems, here is why single people are the best people to take advice from, when love and relationships are concerned:
1. They Can Spot Red Flags From A Mile Away
How do I say “they are not blinded by love” more nicely? Yes, they don’t have the love goggles syndrome which means they can spot red flags when their friends in love cannot.
They see things more crystal clear and their judgement isn’t clouded because they aren’t emotionally involved. It’s another thing that most people don’t listen to their friends when red flags are concerned.
2. They Don’t Settle For Less
Being single for a long time has given them an opportunity to realise their self-worth and things that should be non-negotiable for them in a relationship and they want the same for their friends as well.
If they see you compromising when you shouldn’t, they call it out and save you from what you might regret later.
3. They See (& Hear) Both Sides
They are like therapists or a referee in the game who has a third-person outlook on your relationship problem.
It means they see things you can’t (in rage or love) and put forward your partner’s POV that you never realised to pay heed to. Plus, it’s possible they have had their share of heartbreaks and bad dates which always helps.
4. They Aren’t Afraid To Call It As It Is
While you might have inhibitions to talk about something to your partner or ask someone out or end a toxic relationship, they always push you to do the right thing, no matter what.
They have no fear in the world and they want you to take the plunge for your own happiness. Also, because they will always be there for you, in case things go downhill.
5. They Want The Best For You
Apart from being outright straightforward and practical, they give the best advice because, at the end of the day, they are on your team and want to see you happy.
They are looking out for you and thus, every piece of advice would be in your best interest. They are trying to save you, rather than saving the relationship.Internet Explorer Channel Network
