When we get into sticky dating situations, we often turn to our crew, aka support system of friends and fam, for some advice. While this has probably been around as long as courting has been around, it reigns true now more than ever before. We can thank the prevalence of social media platforms and texting, which basically just make the waters of dating even more difficult to navigate, for that.

If dating were easy, then there probably wouldn't be millions of articles on the subject. Heck, there's even an entire industry based on dishing out good dating advice, just look at dating coaches or matchmakers. But as much as there's good advice, there's also a bunch of bad advice out there too.

We all have that one friend who we always go to for dating advice and that one friend who we love, yes, but would never ever ask about how to respond to a text from the guy that we're into. In fact, most of us have probably learned over the years that sometimes turning to your friends and family for dating advice isn't always the best move, since everyone tends to handle their own relationships differently. 

So we went out to ask 17 people on the worst dating advice they've ever received (and will probably roll their eyes at from now on in the future.) Add them to your own list of advice to take with mountains of salt.
