Question: Should you give your friends relationship advice?

You may think that if your friend is telling you about relationship problems, he or she must be doing so because they want your advice. This is not always the case. But think carefully before giving unsolicited advice, as it is likely to be ignored and can strain your relationship with the recipient.

Why you shouldnt give some friends relationship advice?

Unwelcome advice doesnt just make the recipient feel bad about himself, it makes him or her feel bad about their relationship with you as well. Over the long-run, ineffective support can reduce trust between the giver and receiver and actually hurt your relationship.
