Cupid’s Advice

You often know what’s best for your closest friends–and you should, considering the amount of time you spend together. When it comes to dating, they sometimes don’t quite get it right and may ask for your input. Cupid offers some tips on how to help them find the love they deserve.

1. Find the right person: Your best friend has been single for a very long time and asks you to set her up with someone. Where do you even start? Don’t just find any guy on the street that looks nice. You don’t want to be responsible for setting your friend up with a creep! Consider an old friend from college or a colleague who you really like. Make sure you know him well before introducing him to your friend.

2. Don’t force it: Not everyone enjoys the idea of blind dates. In fact, a lot of women fear the concept or become repulsed by the sheer thought. Try planning a group hangout and invite your two friends who you are setting up. They might hit it off, or they might not. Either way, your friends won’t be left feeling ambushed or awkward.

3. Express your opinion: All too often, our close friends end up dating guys that are no good for them. Their boyfriends don’t respect them and refuse to treat them right, let alone pay for dinner. Unfortunately, your friend is so in love that she sees right past the flaws. Try pointing out the negative sides to her man without bluntly telling her to end their relationship. Sometimes, the only way to help the people close to you is by letting them figure things out for themselves.
