Save It! The Worst Relationship Advice From Black Rom Coms

October 18, 2012 ‐ By

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve noticed that relationship advice is everywhere. In television shows, in books, on this site and even in church, everybody has something to say about what you should be doing in your relationship. Some of it can be valuable, depending on the source; but in most instances, the relationship advice we get from the media (and people easily influenced by the media) ranks somewhere on the ridiculousness meter. The most blatant examples of terrible relationship advice come from a lot of women’s favorite form of media: romantic comedies. Don’t believe me? Check out some of these examples…

    In The Best Man, Mia only slept with Lance’s best friend after he’d been sleeping around on her for the majority of their relationship. I think he was still doing it right up until they got married–then he decided he wanted to act right AND get mad at her for her ONE little discretion while he dogged her out every chance he got–WHATEVER! I think Mia should have dumped he’s trifling butt long before the wedding.

    I seem to remember Josie telling Nina regarding her going to see her ex that “if he snaps, you got him, and there’s no need to go….but if he tries to play it all cool and stuff, then you just need to go and teach his a** a lesson.” Not anything about him seeing her off at the airport.(And besides this, Nina took the train; she didn’t fly).
