Cupid’s Advice:

Everybody loves drama and gossip when it’s not about them. People love following other people’s lives and spreading rumors because it is entertaining to them. When that gossip is directed at you, here are a few ways to keep those lies from affecting your relationship:

1. Ignore it: More often than not, the rumors people spread is minor and will go away as fast as it began. When this happens, the easiest thing you can do is just ignore it. If you don’t give people the satisfaction of letting it get to you, then eventually they will give up. Instead focus on your relationship and keeping it strong.

3. Communicate: In a relationship there are only two people who have the final say in how things play out–you and your partner. If gossip and lies are starting to creep in to your love life, then you need to have a talk together. Sit down with them and discuss the stuff being spread and be sure there are no miscommunications. As long as you and your partner know what is true, then it doesn;t matter what other people say.
