Cupid’s Advice:

Pavelka and Girardi are the most recent in a string of reality show relationships to come to an end.  When meeting and forging a relationship in a public and pressured setting, it’s hard to maintain a true level of “reality” with each other.  Here are some tips to keep you grounded, especially when dealing with someone in the limelight:

1. Trust your instincts: When you meet someone, most of the time your initial impression is right.  If you get the feeling that someone isn’t into you for the right reasons, get out fast.
2. Know what’s private: Certain things and actions should be kept behind closed doors.  Overt public displays of affection, or revealing too much about your relationship to others, may reveal that the other person is only in the relationship for publicity or attention.
3. Keep lines uncrossed: As soon as you cross the line to overexposure, it’s time to step back.  The only way to keep a relationship strong it to keep it personal… as in, just between the two of you.
