Cupid’s Advice:

Thankfully when something goes awry in our relationships and love, it isn’t blasted on social media and hitting the tabloids like celebrity news. While celebrity gossip spreads quicker, there are ways that we can keep the relationship and dating gossip in our lives to a minimum:

1. Make smart choices: Unfortunately, the kind of fun you may have as a single, just isn’t appropriate anymore when you’re in a relationship. Make smart choices and try to avoid body shots and excessive partying without your significant other.
