Sometimes you run into people who seem to live so deeply inside their own heads it renders them incapable of putting themselves in someone else's shoes. Don't even get us started on some of the awful advice people so willingly dole out, the heaping cliches and shallow platitudes that leave you feeling like you'd have been better off if the individual never opened their mouth to begin with!

Prepare to cringe. You're bound to thanks to Redditor Kaisietoo8, who asked the online community "What is the worst relationship advice you have heard?"


"To go nuts..."

To go nuts on your bachelor/bachelorette party. Get it all out of your system before you're married and truly committed.

"Why keep him only for yourself though?"

"Why keep him only for yourself though? Why not let him explore as he pleases? Trust me, he'll appreciate you a lot more if you let him sleep around."

"Thanks mum."

"If you don't remove all your pubes, you'll turn him gay."

Thanks mum.

"He now doesn't do that."

To do everything your partner says. Like seriously my friend thought he had to bend to the very whim of his girlfriend. He now doesn't do that.

"If he hits you..."

"If he hits you it means he loves you because he's risking going to jail for you. Stay with him! He's the one!" (Something along those lines.) Thanks girl on Dr. Phil. Solid advice, ten outa ten.

"Told to me at 2 AM..."

"If you catch your partner pleasuring themselves, dump them. If they'll do that, they'll cheat no problem."

"If you think they're gonna leave, get pregnant/knock them up. Kids fix everything."

"If you're not fighting, you're not caring. Real couples need to fight to remember they love each other."

Told to me at 2 AM by an old woman in the Seattle Dennys parking lot. I was like.... 23 at this point, and she offered this advice totally unprovoked.

"That's a yikes from me, dog."

"He isn't proposing fast enough? Fake a pregnancy"

That's a yikes from me, dog.

"My brother once told..."

My brother once told my female cousin it's important for women to remain "mysterious" and to try and remain aloof to keep a man's attention, even with small things: like never burping around him.

"I know a woman..."

I know a woman that was told by her mother on the morning of her wedding, "Even if you don't want to, have sex when he wants it. When they aren't satisfied is when they start cheating."

"You're a romantic partner..."

"You should stay and help them/fix them if you really love them."

You're a romantic partner not a therapist. And even if you ARE a therapist you don't need to fix them, that's unhealthy. A person can only take on so much of that emotional labor before it starts to drag them down too. If your partner won't even try to fix themselves, you are under no obligation to sacrifice your mental health for them. Don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise.

Love or money?

An age old question.

Ideally, you wouldn't have to decide between the two.

In a perfect world, you would be able to find the true love of your life and be incredibly wealthy all at once.

But, as the saying goes, you can't have everything.

Though if faced with having to choose between the two, people might have a different idea of what the obvious answer would be.

Redditor lulinghayaw was curious how people would decide when faced with this decision, leading them to ask:

"Genuine, true love or 5 million dollars? Why?"

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"
