Paris Hilton sure can pick them!  Within a week, Paris’ new boyfriend, Cy Waits, has gone from head of Vegas nightclub operations to unemployed, according to E! Online.  Last week Waits was Hilton’s hero as he reportedly pulled a gun on a knife-wielding intruder trying to break into her home, but hero worship came to a halt when he was busted for a DUI alongside a cocaine-carrying Hilton on Friday.

How do you know if your partner is a bad influence?

Cupid’s Advice:

1. Different interests: You and your partner should have similar interests.  That’s not to say that you have to enjoy the exact same things, but you should most likely see eye-to-eye on some of them.  If you find yourself involved in activities that you don’t normally agree with, your partner may be a bad influence.

2. Questioning your relationship: You shouldn’t continually ask yourself why you’re with your mate.  If the answer to that question isn’t obvious and you find yourself dwelling on the reason you’re together, it’s possible your partner isn’t good for you.

3. Changing your beliefs: If you find that your partner is influencing you negatively by pushing you into an uncomfortable situation, he or she  probably doesn’t have your best interest at heart.  Focus your will power and stick to your guns.  In other words, run!
