Not everyone can dole out love advice like Cupid can.¬† At the premiere of his new movie Friends With Benefits, Justin Timberlake said he is the last person anybody should ask for relationship tips, UsMagazine.com reports. “I think it’s pretty obvious that I should not be giving anybody love advice,” the actor/musician said, adding, “Yeah, listen to a single male‚Ä¶ That’ll work out.” Timberlake, 30, split with Jessica Biel in March.
How do you know if someone giving you love advice is credible?
Some people have more bad luck in the love arena than others and may not be the best source of relationship advice. Cupid has some tips on how to know when someone is giving you reliable tips:
1. Single: Don’t get your relationship advice from one of your perpetually single friends. There’s nothing wrong with being single, but if they’ve never had a long-term relationship, they probably can’t help you out.
2. In a relationship: On the other hand, someone who has been in a perfect, trouble-free relationship for as long as you can remember might have trouble giving you tips on how to overcome relationship hurdles.
3. Different experiences: If you ask a friend who doesn’t believe in monogamy what to do when you think your mate is cheating, they may give you a biased response. In other words, talk to someone with the same outlook on love.
