Sure there are lots of articles around that spout the best dating advice for people who are looking for a phone date. However, have you ever heard the relationship experts spouting their worst advice? Business Insider asked several experts what the worst relationship advice they had ever received is. Here is some of their responses…read them and  you’ll know what to avoid.

Relationship expert and author of a book on relationships Andrea Syrtash says that one piece of advice that wasn’t great to hear was that if you are fighting then your relationship is in trouble. She says that it’s not bad if you fight, it simply matters how you deal with conflicts in a relationship and what the outcome is that determines whether or not there is trouble going on!

Emily Lovz, a dating coach, says that the advice that you should look up your date online before you meet them is not a good one. She says that you need to be able to trust what they say, and if you start a relationship out with distrust then it’s not going to be great. Even worse, “cyber snooping” can lead to you checking up on your partner’s personal internet things later on in the relationship.

Hal Runkel, a marriage and family therapist says that the advice that says you must meet each other’s needs is atrocious. He says this is not the recipe for a good relationship. It’s more like a good recipe for two people who will suck the life out of one another. If you don’t need someone, you are free to want them, which is a much more sexy feeling.

So there you have it. If you are looking for a phone date, don’t follow these pieces of bad dating advice. You have heard it from the experts!
