What I Like About You... is not your bad advice.

Posted on May 17, 2010 by Mary

Friends. They try to help. We ask for advice, and they give it, and sometimes they do a really good job! Yay friends doing a good job! And then sometimes.. . they are kind of yappity know-it-alls who lead us down the path of destruction, embarrassment, and bad romance moves.

Remember that time that cute- but-daft guy that Val was dating tried to tell Holly that Penn Badgley was super into her and that she needed to "set him free" before he had even asked her out or anything? (Tonight, 10pm et, btw.) And then Penn Badgley was all "omg, ego, I wasn't even into you!" (Though, actually, he was, but still, pretty bad advice ... a pre-emptive let-down before a question has even been asked?)

Although the idea of someone not returning Penn Badgley's attention is fairly unrealistic, the whole "person professing to know for sure what's up and giving really, really bad advice" angle sure did ring real-life true...

What's the worst advice you ever got?
