Many people have opinions but fewer have direct experience and useful knowledge.When it comes to the world of dating your friend may have turned to you because they see that you’re being successful in that field and they want to know how you are doing it and whether you can help them.They have come to you because they know you’ll empathise and understand.In this case you could devise a strategy together and draw strength and encouragement from each other.If you want her advice on what shoes to wear with what dress, then go for it, but she shouldn’t be telling you if it’s too soon to sleep with him.Only you know the intimate details of your relationships.
The way you interact with people isn’t the same, so the way guys are going to be with her is not necessarily how they’ll be with you.
Maybe you changed your attitude, worked on your self confidence or started dating a wider age group – whatever it is, share your experience with your friend.
Your friend is then free to try some of the strategies you used or to go their own way.
Point them in the right direction There’s a wealth of information online and in the media about dating and relationships.
You may not be the right person to give advice to your friend but you can point them in the right direction.
