Reality TV star The Situation has officially laced up his dancing shoes for a stint on Dancing With the Stars this season, and the “lucky” professional dancer paired with him is Karina Smirnoff.  The question is, is there a hook-up coming?  According to E! Online, fellow cast members of the reality TV show Jersey Shore don’t support the idea of a celebrity hook-up between the dancing duo-for Smirnoff’s sake.  “She’s too good for him,” said Snooki.  “She’s smart. She won’t even go there.”  JWOWW agrees, adding  “Karina’s a woman. She needs to stay a woman.  She’s not a Jersey Shore girl.”  On the other hand, Vinny is a bit more supportive explaining, “If he gets that, I’ll give props to him.”

For reality TV star The Situation, his friends aren’t supportive of a celebrity hook-up with Smirnoff. What do you do if your friends put you down in front of someone you like?

Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes your friends may think they know what’s best for your relationship and love and will offer their opinions about who you should and shouldn’t date. Often times these opinions may make you look bad. Here’s Cupid advice on how to handle your friends’ negative comments:

1. Stand up for yourself!: Believe it or not, it is possible to stand up for yourself without looking defensive.  Instead of coming back with obvious anger directed at your friend, stay calm and explain to them why they are wrong.  The last thing you want is for your crush to think you have no self-esteem.

2. Talk to your friends: It’s often times best to discuss a situation that has upset you after you’re out of the public eye.  When you speak in the heat of the moment, you may regret what you say.  But don’t hesitate to tell your friends that you don’t appreciate them putting you down, especially in front of someone you’re trying to impress.

3. Stay positive: In the moment, the damage has already been done.  Salvage both the situation at hand and your future relationship with someone you really like by shrugging off what your friends are saying about you and proving to your crush that you’re a positive and upbeat kind of person.
