Advice for Summer Dating (Courtesy of Reddit)
Welcome back to The Junction Blog! Today, we’re embracing summer with the best dating advice. Summer is a season filled with new challenges and experiences. While we anticipate the chance to meet new friends (romantic or not), it doesn’t hurt to go forward with advice from our online friends. Let’s find out what the users of Reddit have to say about the best dating advice.
If you don’t already know, Reddit is a website where people can post content such as links, text posts, and images, which people can comment and vote on. The more popular the comments in the post, the more points they receive. In thinking of new opportunities for dating and friendship that our residents undertake inside and outside of our Menomonee Falls, WI apartment community, we found a great Reddit thread about the dating advice. Some of these tips received up to 4,000 (even 6,000) points on Reddit!
“Never assume a man [or woman] is out of your league, you don't know what his [or her] type is.”
“If you put someone on a pedestal, you force them to look down on you.”
“Always be mindful of the differences between love and infatuation. Infatuation directs all focus and effort to an external party; there is no concern for the self. Love leaves room for you to love yourself as well as your SO. When you hear a couple in a good relationship say ‘I love you’ they're really saying ‘I love us.’ You will never fill your potential as a partner unless you can genuinely care for and love yourself.”
“You can love someone and still be aware of their flaws.”
“Putting someone on a pedestal is different than thinking someone is amazing. Thinking someone is amazing is okay and an essential part of falling in love.”
