12 Relationship Advice People Think Are Good But Are Actually Bad!

By- Shreya Sharma

There are people who cannot help themselves to stop giving advice and we so quickly love to implement them in our life without actually wondering if that can cause harm to our relationship. Before adding any advice into your relationship, it is essential that you take your time and think about the pros and cons of that particular advice because it can turn fatal for your relationship. Here are 12 relationship advice people think are good but are actually bad.

  1. Change yourself for your partner

There would be people who will advise you to change your habit and routine in order to impress your partner, but before you follow them blindly, it is important that you analyze the advice. You do not have to change the things that define you.


  1. Sex is the solution to everything

It can distract you two or hold the fight for a while, but it will not solve the problem. Do not let be the substitute of healthy discussion.

  1. Be completely honest with your partner

Though truth and honesty are important in a relationship, but sometimes it is better to keep a few things with yourself. If you do not like his family or friend, do not hurt him by being blunt. Look for the right time to subtly present your opinion.

  1. Being married

If you have constant arguments, then there will be people who will advise you to get married to solve your fights. But if you cannot handle fights now, how would you do that later?


  1. Your partner is your soulmate

No, it is not necessary that your partner is your soulmate. Your mother, your best friend, your pet, anybody can be your soulmate.

  1. Sacrifices

People might suggest you lower down your needs and standards, to find the right guy. But they should understand that the relationship should make you feel satisfied and happy.

  1. There is a reason for everything

This is what people will tell you when you are facing a tough time. And sometimes the reason for the rough patch in your relationship is that you are unapologetic to demand what you want.


  1. Change your partner

No, you should love your partner for who he is. You should accept him with his flaws rather than planning to change him.

  1. Counseling

If you cannot listen to each other and have a healthy discussion between you two to solve the problem, then how can a third person help you know your relationship more.

  1. Give it more time

There comes a time in every relationship where you have to decide if you want to give more time to your relationship or walk out of it. This should be your choice and not someone else’s advice.


  1. This too will pass

People may say this too shall pass when you have a rough time in your relationship. But the truth is it will not pass until you put in efforts to solve the issue.

  1. Have a baby to solve problems

Have a baby when you are ready or when you want to have kids, not to solve the problems. Do not have the baby just to solve the relationship.
