From InfernoXV
Relationship advice
I’ve de-gayed (straightened out) some of these for our blog (they apply to both sexes so I’ve kept some as is) but Edward Yong’s got good judgement and maturity from life experience (I’ve learnt some of his lessons the hard way) as well as culture, living up to the stereotype and against his own point:

A homosexual orientation is not an automatic indication of taste, class or intelligence.
So here are some of his best points:

• Never assume. (He’s probably talking about orientation but it’s good advice anyway.)
• First dates don’t want to hear about your crappy day. They want to hear how in control and confident you are. Save the bitch session for when you know each other better — maybe.
• Spend less time trying to meet Ms Right and more time trying to be Mr Right.
• If it really doesn’t work out with someone, forget about the ‘I just want to be friends’ crap. It’s an insult to everyone’s intelligence.
• Learn to be happy alone. If you require constant companionship to be happy, you need a therapist, not a boyfriend.
• Some guys are simply jerks. There is no valid excuse for their actions, and there is no nice guy inside them screaming to get out.
• Don’t assume he’s immature because he’s young. Don’t assume he’s emotionally mature because he’s older.
• Mr Perfect is a myth. Mr Perfect is a myth. Mr Perfect is a myth. You will never find someone who satisfies all your criteria and is flawless. If you believe you’re dating Mr Perfect, you are either deceiving yourself or you are dangerously low in self-esteem.
• Realize that the two of you won’t always agree on every subject. Just because you have an argument doesn’t mean the relationship is doomed to failure. There’s a big difference between arguing and fighting.
• You can’t really change anyone, and no one can really change you, but you can be deceived into believing both.
• If it’s over, it’s over. You can’t bargain your way out of being dumped.
