Cupid’s Advice:

How you handle rumors can make or a break a relationship.  Cupid has some tips on how to deal:

1. Hold strong: The best thing to do in a situation is to not let things get under your skin, no matter how severe they are.  Rumors are meant to hurt you, and by defying the odds, you show those gossipers out there that they can’t affect you and your relationship.

2. Preventative measures: Be careful who you talk to about your relationship.  Sometimes it just takes one person to misinterpret something to start a rumor.

3. Address the situation: The best thing to do as a couple is to talk about each rumor that comes up and trust what your partner is saying.  Without trust, the rumors will destroy you as a couple.
