    - To be braver when attracted to someone in the aspect of making moves; the result more than makes up for the fear beforehand
    - Never ever put up with rubbish treatment, especially when it's personally off an insecure other half and you have done nothing to deserve it
    - There are decent people in the world, don't taint them with the same brush before you've even got to know them just because you've been hurt before
    - Always consult your gut instinct and then use logic and honesty, whilst mindful of respect towards yourself, to get a solution
    - Enjoy every moment of any relationship, whether it turned sour or not at the end
    - Never expect to find that someone, just socialise with your friends and meet new people and eventually someone will happen upon you
    - Expect the unexpected
    - Always apologise when you know you're in the wrong, but also don't become a walkover

    For the first-time girls out there (may apply to boys too):

    1. Firstly as soon as they start talking about 'open relationships' it's time to call it a day. It will not end well. They will cheat. You will get hurt.

    2. Also trust your instincts first time round, if you've broken up really badly and they've been mean or abusive at all, don't take them back no matter how much you want to because it will only end the same way again a few months later!

    3. If they're avoiding you and 'busy' all the time, and if you find yourself always instigating conversation/meetings, there's likely to be someone else on the scene, or else they've lost interest.

    4. Oh, and watch out for boys who seem to fall 'in love' with you very quickly, especially if they're hot and have had multiple relationships before: remember the cliche is true, most boys ARE only after one thing unfortunately, and often spin the love thing as a romantic excuse for their eagerness to get you into bed with them.

    5. Try and have fun along the way, so even if it does end bitterly, as many relationships do, you won't have wasted all of your time because noone can take the good times away from you

    Good luck everyone, hope your first relationship ends much better than mine just has!

    - Treat em' mean to keep em' keen, this not only applies to guys but girls too.

    I realised after my bf broke up with me I was too nice to him, and now that i'm bein a total B I T C H, all of a sudden he's interested.

    - You can never let someone in fully, unless you've been in a relationship for a VERY long time, even then they will find some of your weaknesses and use them against you, so don't do the whole "OMGAWWD I love you!" after 1 day!

    - I also found out he lied to me and the real reason why he broke up with me, yes hurt like a *****, but meh, more reason for me to get over the prat, but we're still "friends"

    You can't expect a relationship to survive when all you do is lie in bed and watch TV

    If you think you can do better, you probably can

    Follow your heart and don't be bitter

    Breaks never end well

    Issues generally don't just disappear, they need solving

    Don't lie

    Love is the best feeling ever

    Be savvy with money..

    if you are paying for everything and the girls doesnt..its time to wake up

    If you can fart in bed and belch and burp and not have her raise her eyes at you...its a solid relationship or it has become too stale and no one gives a damn...

    take your pick of the above

    Durex Tingle condoms make my penis burn. Do not use in future.

    This is actually serious, wearing these things make you loose wood, very quickly. It's hard to keep an erection when it feels like your member is on fire.

    Don't think it's ok for someone to put you down day in day out - verbal abuse should not be tolerated. You deserve better than that.

    Women don't want solutions, they just want to be listened to.

    Love isn't about youth, excitement and infatuation - its about what you're grandparents have; its about the old-fashioned utterly un-sexy stuff.

    You will mess up the first few.

    -That once you commit in a relationship, you have to deal with every screwed up parts of it for as long as you can.

    -Your feelings/love for your partner will always be there even if your partner is the most annoying person in the world.

    -They come back when you least expect it.
