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 Jersey Shore don’t seem to support the idea of a 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.  “Karina’s a woman,” she said.  “She needs to stay a woman.  She’s not a Jersey Shore girl.”  On the other hand, Vinny is a bit more supportive.  He said, “If he gets that, I’ll give props to him.”

What do you do if your friends put you down in front of someone you like?

Cupid’s Advice:

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.
