I am the advice giver in my group of friends. Everyone comes to me for sound and practical advice. Even when it comes to dating. And I haven't been in a serious relationship in over three years. (Wow. That sucks.)
Most of the advice I offer is based on what I would do or what I think should be done. Most of it is not from first hand experience. But. I do have some life experiences that have equipped me with good advice. Here are a few pieces of wisdom.
+ Don't give a third chance to someone who didn't deserve the first two. Because he's probably still talking to the Catfish person on Facebook that he's never actually met.
+ Don't give a stubborn girl advice about who not to date because that will make her want to date them more. (See above.) However, you may feed her as many I Told You So's as you wish. Because you did. You did tell her so.
+ Always have a bottle of wine on your shelf, a few beers in the fridge, and a bottle of Fireball in your freezer.
Different moods call for different booze.
+ If you like vodka, drink Tito's.
+ But don't order that third Tito's and water. Switch to beer. Or go home.
+ If you want to be considered a friend (and not just a fan or God forbid a groupie) and you're hanging out with someone in a band...don't let your phone ring out with their song as your ringtone. It could get embarrassing.
+ If a blog is offering a badass giveaway, enter it. You might just win! (Seriously, enter my giveaway.)
What advice have you learned the hard way?
