How do you handle rumors when you’re in a relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

Rumors can destroy your relationship if you don’t rid yourselves of them soon after they arrive. Cupid has some tips:

1. Address it: When there are rumors surrounding your relationship, it can be very frustrating. The key is to address them straight on. Whether you’re in the public eye or not, saying things like “no comment” just adds fuel to the fire. You and your partner can make a statement about what is being said. On the other hand, you don’t owe anybody an explanation if you don’t want to give one. That being said, it’s good to discuss it with your partner so you are both on the same page.

2. Bond with your partner: When things are being said about your relationship, they can certainly take their toll. Don’t allow that to happen. All that matters is what you and your partner believe and feel. This is why it’s important to connect with your partner and bond more than ever during tough times. Remind each other how committed you are and realize that it doesn’t matter what other people say.

3. Shake it off: Just like Taylor Swift sings in her hit song, shake it off! Ignore whatever negative things are being said about your relationship. Rumors are irrelevant, and you shouldn’t let them affect your life. If people are talking about you, it’s because they have nothing better to do. Only surround yourself with positive and uplifting individuals!
