Not for me, but for those who seek it. Inside this thread we shall compile the best advices for guys/gals who need just a little bit of help in their lifes with love!

>Be yourself from the very start, if you change yourself too much for the person you love. Then the person you love will think you're someone else once you start acting more like yourself.

>Sometimes the middleground is not the best ground. It could leave you both wanting and well, less happier than you could be. Remember that both of you might want this to work and so will want to let you decide something as well. Alternatively you could let him/her decide

>Be honest with him/her. Depending on how strongly you feel for eachother, if there's something about him/her that bugs you then try to casually bring it up. If you both want it to work then it's something you both could work out.

These are just few small tidbits. There are of course much more specialised advices out there. But if you have any do bring it to the table, and keep it real. This is not a troll thread. This is a response relationship thread towards all the recent troll "advice" threads. If you don't like this thread then why did you bother clicking on it?

Get involved in their interests and just hang out around them for a while. This will inevitably lead to the two of you fucking in a toolshed in no time at all.

Is that how the teens do it up there? I imagine toolsheds are full of pointy, sharp things, so I wouldn't risk greasedancing with anyone in one of those.

Here's another tidbit: don't come to these forums for that sort of advice.

@Bocam: As Louis CK would say that's cheating. You're just using that image without actually putting in that image in. Fuck it I'll just let him explain it.

#14 Posted by Hero_Swe (1115 posts) -

Boy the majority of GB community sure has gone down the drain hasn't it? Well, if you guys want to be forever alone then by all means. Do keep posting the humorous pictures :P

I have to say, I greatly appreciate seeing Zapp's face associated with this thread.

According to an old man that Dane Cook met, you should cheat to keep your marriage healthy and long lasting.

Probably good advice? I mean, good ol' DC wouldn't make that up, and old men know their shit, and life now and in the 50s and 60s were probably just as they are now.. it's not like things dramatically changed in the past 50 years.

Right?

There's another way to do that, Wife swapping.

#19 Posted by Pezen (1565 posts) -

@Hero_Swe: It's probably easier to find someone to have an affair with than to find a friend or another couple where both parties like what the other one has. Also, more adventure that way.

#20 Posted by Asrahn (552 posts) -

Communication is key. It's amazing what talking to your significant other can do.

Trust is key. Trust can be broken - make sure you never screw up in this manner, for it will never mend.

Sometimes "the one" isn't actually "the one". He/She may just be the one experience you need in order to know exactly what you need or want.

#21 Posted by ItBeStefYo (1021 posts) -

@Hero_Swe: do the people on that wife swap program actually have sex with the swapped partner??!?!?

#22 Posted by NathHaw (2760 posts) -

Hey, guess what: the GB community is going down the drain. It's totally happening just now. It's not happened or been mentioned before.

Thank you! We need more smart people like this guy here on GB!

Indeed, the first may not be the one. Hell not even the second third or fourth.

#26 Posted by Pezen (1565 posts) -

Here's a serious relationship advice; always stay true to yourself and your own emotions. I needed the italics for dramatic effect. But it's true. Sometimes people forget themselves within a relationship and end up not fulfilling their own life, and sometimes stay in a relationships that while not abusive might still be eating at their soul. People sometimes break up too easily, and sometimes they don't when they really should, for everyone's sake. But if you're honest with yourself, you'll save yourself time and anguish as well as other people's. Sure, there will always be broken emotions, but at least you know there's no illusions regarding what it is you're doing.

Take it from someone who have spent too long in awful relationships and dated people I knew from the get go was nothing more than a pretty face and nothing meshed. But I couldn't be honest with myself back then, I was too eager just to have something that actually qualifying it by adding some quality checklist to fill never came into my thoughts.

Don't pretend to be something you're not, you'll regret it later on when you want to grow a beard and your girlfriend says beards are disgusting and she would hate it if you had it. Only a teenager would think "Better to have a girlfriend than a beard." But that's not the point, you want a girlfriend that likes you with or without beard because that's how you are.

And in regards to losing yourself; don't be jealous, needy, clingy, controlling or overly dramatic. It drains your relationships. Get a hobby, see a friend, stop being a leech.

Communication is key, but communicate clearly and not using metaphors and innuendos, get your point across clearly and be sure to discuss the matter through and through. Don't give up on the discussion and leave it be just because it's work. If nothing is resolved, the issue still exist.

Also, don't nag. I've read that nagging kills relationships more often than cheating. Think about that one.

I am sure there are things that are good that you can do, but I'm having caffeine crash after a full day of it and nothing in the last few hours so I'll leave it at this for now.

Although I agree this community is kind of garbage, a thread full of platitudes isn't going to help people. That's why some people aren't taking this seriously? Or maybe they're all assholes, I don't know. Eh, actually, they're all assholes. Nevermind!

If some kid has a problem and they're naive enough to come here, they're going disregard this and make their own thread because it would be too modest of them to bury it in a general relationship thread.

S'not really the point of this thread though. The point is for other people to add advice so people that are in need can lurk it and read it without posting.

#32 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

If I had a problem with my gf then I'd probably make an anonymous account and post it on /r/relationships, I don't really like using my own accounts if I'm revealing somewhat intimate/private details.

You dont have to think much of the ra threads, but at the very least dont be assholes. Infact, the people asking about relationship advice are the most mature part of these threads most of the time.

Yeah, I know. I'm shitting on the parade, and I apologize, but most people who have problems are just going to make their own threads directed at their problems instead of coming here, because a bunch of random platitudes to no one in particular doesn't help anyone, really. "Be yourself" or "go with the flow" wouldn't help me when I was 15 or whatever because it wouldn't directly pertain to my specific issue. It's like looking at a poster of a cat with "Hang in there" on it. I would be like, "Whatever, cat."

I'm sorry. I'll stop.

#38 Posted by OldGuy (1517 posts) -

Ask yourself: "Am I having fun?" If the answer is yes, then you can stop asking questions. if it's not, well that opens up a whole world of possibilities on how to stop not having fun and start doing so -- so vast in fact that it is not possible to suggest the correct course of action, other than to say that you now need to do something else because if you keep doing what you're doing now you will continue to  not have fun. This works for all of life, but the interesting part about using this test in a relationship is that the other person gets to ask the same question of themselves -- so don't be surprised if you having fun means that they aren't. Now all you've got to do is find someone with whom your fun zones line up (heh!).
 
That and key parties. Key parties are essential to any good relationship.

Cause you're not getting some vital endorphines and shit and stuff like that you would be getting had you someone with you. S'some science shit that's beyond me but I know it works.

#41 Posted by Video_Game_King (36079 posts) -

@Hero_Swe:

A.) I'm assuming that you are equating endorphins with happiness. It ain't that simple.

B.) Even if they're the same thing, though, there are other ways of getting endorphins.

C.) I had a third point, but I completely forgot what the hell it was. Honest.

I may not know much yet, but I've learned that you never want to show your true colors right away. Pretend to be someone else, and each day change that person you're pretending to be. She will be totally confused and the result is total arousal.
