should you give relationship advice to friends?

@mr-hardbaker, Hah, Nope. If they listen then they will get somewhat of an idea as to what your saying, but being with someone they will have much greater thoughts about their own relationship. If you see it become destructive, that’s when you step in and say something about it.

When you start seeing signs of repetitious anger towards each other then you have a right to intervene.

The best thing you can do is label points about the relationship and see how the person feels about each one individually. They might not even hear you there… but at least you gave something for them to think about.

as much as i want to give advice I don’t. why? because its best to just let someone understand it from their own perspective. they might even get a little bit of enlightenment out of it.

@mr-hardbaker, Why not? If they’re a true friend they’ll hear you, or at least listen without getting upset. I have a couple friends that I can be totally honest with and it’s an extremely valuable relationship to have. I can ask them for advice or they ask me for some and we value each others opinion. So maybe you shouldn’t GIVE relationship advice, but instead OFFER it, like an invitation to be advised. Don’t just arrogantly impose your judgement on them with the notion “take it or leave it” cuz then you’re an asshole and no one’s going to take it.

You can give them advice but make them know that its coming from your point of view , Its their choice to decide whether its right or wrong :)

Only if they never asked you and it’s a bad one. Obviously.
