It shows the cover of these hot girls and designer wear that you can never afford. then it tells you how to watch out for "inexperienced dudes" or "crazy women". It like gives you some sort of "how it should be bible" that many normal folk can't live up to.
I don't read any of them. I rarely buy mags like that. In my opinion, those magazines kill innocence and natural sense of relationship. And they make people think as they do as if only one truth stands when it comes to relationships. I don't like generalization at all. Every relationship is unique in my opinion. People can still read them. But I honestly don't take them seriously. It is just for fun to me.
Yes all of those magazines are trash. Don't read them for relationship advice. If you want good advice read the DSMV before going out with a girl that way you know the signs of mental illness before you get yourself in a pickle (I'm being serious about this). You might even learn something about yourself that will be beneficial to your confidence. If you want good relationship advice ask married people who have been married for a while.
Cosmo has the most hilarious sex tips, they're so ridiculous that they've become a running joke... They fill people's mind with pointless shit designed to make them be better consumers and judge each other and ourselves even more harshly. I've never bought into this shit and never will.
