Bad advice and stuff...

    I've been to a lot of forums, and seen a lot of relationship advice threads. This site has to be amongst the worst in the advice it gives.

    Has no one else noticed this? No matter the issues, the advice given is "he's selfish, break up with him", "he's using you, break up with him", "he's an asshole, break up with him", "break up with him", "break up with him", "break up with him".

    This is a terrible way to look at things. Relationships are all about compromise. Everyone preaches it, suggesting the other guy should give in to them, but heaven forbid you give in to him once in a while. And if he doesn't give in, "break up with him".

    What ever happened to compromise? To the fact that there will be conflict, there will be difficulty, but its the degree of conversation and openness that pulls a relationship through? Because all I see is a bunch of children in relationships of convenience, blowing them off at the first sign of trouble.

    Does this bother anyone else, or am I the only traditionalist left in this?

    You're right. It's all about self-righteousness and taking more comfort, but that's no different than everyday life.

    I don't look for solutions outside of myself (i.e. it's not me, it's you) any longer nor do I have sympathy for people that do. There's much of that here, and it increases my tolerance and shows how willful I still am.

    but then again.....you're not really taking a lot of this too serious are you? It's just not reality in many ways....not to say there aren't some good guys with sound advice, but you've read some of the outrageous shit on here, right??? case closed. BTW i give good sound advice on an hourly basis....call for an appt.

    nope, not alone
    but not to many relationship guys responding
    mostly 'for ever alone' ones...think there may be direct correlation?

    That was my thought. The only advice they give is "break up with him", and they wonder why they're always single...
