Don't Worry About Opinions

On the overall scheme of things, do opinions really matter in a love based relationship?

When it comes to meeting someone, or when you have found someone, do other peoples opinions really matter? In a way yes, and in a way no.

If you're asking someone what they think, then you need to take a look at the situation and think why am I asking this? Is it because you are unsure? Or you feel more at ease knowing your friends like the person you're dating.

Sure, having a partner that gets on with your mates is great. But you don't really need to ask their approval to date someone. I don't. If I like them, and they make me happy - then that's all I need. Love is all you need, right?

If you like someone enough, you shouldn't worry what others think. If you have no doubt in your mind, then you shouldn't even be thinking about it.

But sometimes people just tell you their opinion anyway when you don't ask for it. Why is it that others do that? Is it because they know this person better than you, and because they're looking out for you? Or is it just because they are jealous?

When it comes to my opinions, I try to keep them to myself nowadays. As I have found sometimes, even the best intentions end up with you being made a fool.

I once told a friend her boyfriend was a sleaze, and she confronted him about it. He didn't like me much afterwards, and she didn't believe it. And where did it get me? Right back where I was to start off.

It can be hard to tell someone that their partner or new love interest is not good for them. If you're only trying to look out for them, the best thing you can do is be supportive through every up and down they have. And even if you saw it coming, never say I told you so. A good friend listens but never speaks, unless they're asked to.

Date who you like. Make your own informed choices, and just be happy.
