Stop Telling Me to “Put Myself Out There”

In the roundup we like to feature some anti advice, the things you just shoulsnt listen to at all. A common dating advice trip is the classic “put yourself out there”. Helen Zook from Cosmo has some input on why this is terrible advice and you need to stop telling it to people. “Dating doesn’t always make sense. But in that case, you shouldn’t just copy and paste a cliché. If you’re drawing a blank, it’s way more productive (for your friendship and the introvert’s love life) to admit you’re at a loss, commiserate together, and Google the hell out of it.” Check out the article in full for all of the reasons it’s time to come up with something new and stop telling your friends to PUT THEMSELVES OUT THERE!
