We all like having a wise person guide us through our problems. But can a person we don't know really help us with relationship advice? Crowdsourcing is a great tool for determining if something is generally good but what it's not great at is nuance. Would you randomly ask strangers for love advice? Would you take it?
Being a human-being (and thinking and saying and doing) means sometimes stepping outside of your comfort zone. Unless you're The Most Interesting Man In The World, you may have to fake it until you make it here and there. Unless you're moving from being a socially-awkward recluse to a world famous motivational speaker, nowhere is stepping outside of your comfort zone so necessary as dating. There's a reason that boozin' leads to shmoozin' which leads to smoochin'.
People aren't always the most honest about their dating lives. From virginity status to choice of partners to how much money you make, sometimes we just can't bear to tell the truth. Our favorite 50s hero, Timmy Gordon, may not be 100% forthcoming about his relationships than we would have liked.
