I am just going to say that I've seen over 100 dating advises on YouTube, GAG website, and my peers. there are many advice that are the same and there are advice that are really annoying because they make no sense, make contradictions, or just really vague. Here is some of the advice I hate hearing.
1.) "There are many fish in the sea"
Ever seen the Mississippi River? no? well its pretty much polluted to the point there's no fish at all. If there are any fish in the river, it's probably dead. The fish are probably either taken by a fishermen or migrated to another place. In short, the girls around me are not my type! If there's a girl that is my type, another man got to her first already before I knew it. And the dead fish? no offense but i was referring to the unattractive girls. My standards are not that high. its high as a passing grade in college. You have to get at least a C which is just be healthy and pure(which just don't do anything illegal). why would i go for a dead fish when i can go for a fresh fish? as such, this plenty of fish advice, you should also tell me if the water is fresh! you can't tell me there are a lot of girls to date when you yourself don't know that most of the attractive ones are already taken.
2.) "Just be yourself"
That is one heck of a double edge sword. It is true that girls do not like guys who are not being honest to them or even to themselves. However, that idea of being yourself is telling me that it sounds like it will guarantee to backfire 99% of the time. I can approach to a girl and tell her "I like your breasts or butt" because I am being honest. Tell me if got the key to her heart.
3.) "it just happens"
The most ANNOYING advice I have ever heard in my entire life. Its vague, very vague. Are you telling me that I should convert to one of the mainstream religion and pray to god, asking when will it happen? Or I should go to the fields and find a four leaf clover and get the best of luck? If the weather forecast said its going to rain, telling me scientifically is fine since it makes sense, telling me god is angry is another thing, but telling me "it just happen" is more illogical than a person telling me a reason why earth is flat. I don't trust faith or luck enough to see this advice as useful.
4.)"Being in a relationship sucks"
I am not going to take this advice serious when a person saying this to me is in a relationship or married. You can tell me many reason why relationship but I turn a blind eye when I see many happy couples in the park especially when you were talking about how great your relationship went 5 seconds ago. I find this advice very hypocritical, you telling me not to get a girl when you are showing how being in a relationship is great.
5.)"Do not focus getting a relationship, focus on the things you like"
Telling me this is like trying to convince people who don't believe in climate change, believe that climate change is real. You don't really convince me with this advice. The idea of "sex is great", you don't get it from anywhere since prostitution is illegal and many people oppose it. Not only that, there's love, tenderness, and affection from the person around your age. I love playing video games however; that doesn't help me that I still want those things like sex. In my opinion, this advice sounds temporary. Also might be saying "avoid the things you really want, enjoy the things you have" doesn't matter since I still want this thing regardless.
