What is your take on a single person giving a person in a relationship advice? I often catch myself giving my friends advice
, even though I never been in a relationship. I hear it's a bad idea
and I always try to bite my tongue
. Sometimes it's hard to stay quiet when you have an opinion. I never been in a relationship, but I from what I learned through friends and from what I seen, I sometimes think that I know a bit
due to what I view. I tried to tell my friend I shouldn't give advice and I could ruin things.
He told me shut up because even though I never had a girlfriend, I have an opinion and I give good advice
as well. I don't know if he used it, but him and his girlfriend ( both are really close friends) are still together.
Always searching for new bits of knowledge, I try to glean, from the observations of others, those elements that will become a part of a new knowledge-base for future research. I have highlighted some bits and pieces from above, so that I might contemplate their overall impact on our society.
I have just several questions about what you have said.
1. Why is it that, even though you recognize it to be a bad idea, while giving your friends advice, you always manage to bite your tongue?
2. Doesn't that render anything that you might be saying as some sort of unintelligible babble, or are your friends so overcome with awe, thinking that you know so much, and just assume that they don't understand you, because they are less educated than you?
3. Even though your friend(s) are given fair warning about your relative lack of expertise, are they comfortable with your feeling that just because you have an opinion, it must be good?
4. What flavor is your tongue, anyway, and could you simply be addicted to the taste?
