We have a weird impulse to try to console our single friends on Valentine’s Day, even though they really don’t want to hear it.
A new survey found 65% of single people don’t want your advice, and they won’t listen to it.
It also found the three things they hate hearing the most:
1. “You’ve got to put yourself out there.”
2. “Don’t be so picky.”
3. “It will happen when you least expect it.”
So who do they want advice from, when they’re actually in the mood to actually hear it?
48% of men go to their male friends for advice, 34% go to female friends, and 13% go to their ex. For women, 66% go to female friends, 35% go to male friends, and 27% go to their parents.
