I know these survey results about how 50% of U.S. adults say they hide from their friends and family members who vent about their relationship problems don't relate to me and my BFFs because I just asked them if it's annoying when I make them close-read and analyze my love life-related Gchats. They all said, "No, Katie, I love hearing updates about what it means that your ex constantly sends you Onion articles about Girls." So I'm good!
But for the rest of you (via the New York Daily News):
some 50 percent of U.S. adults said that they have dodged a friend or family member who talks incessantly about his or her relationship problems.
Among the younger participants, 25-34-year-olds, 64 percent have admitted to steering clear of a pal for this reason.
"Friends can be great resources when it comes to dating advice, but at a certain point, they can get tired of hearing about your issues and just tell you what you want to hear rather than give you the advice you really need," said Jennifer Kelman, a life coach with professional services website Pearl.com, who conducted the survey of 1,000 adults.
