It was the 90’s. We were young, we were confused, and, when it came to love and sex, we were starved for good information. With nowhere else to turn, we learned what we could from the songs we traded on mixtapes and awkwardly swayed to at school dances. But what did we learn?
If you want to be someone’s lover, you have take the time to get to know their friends. (Turns out, that’s actually pretty good advice.)
Sometimes, you need to set aside the whole night for epic love-making.
Scrubs: don’t date one, don’t be one.
When you lock it, you lose it.
Talk. About. Sex.
You shouldn’t keep dating someone just because you think they’re going to drag you up into the light where you belong. No one’s going to do that for you.
If you want it that way, you need to be clear about which way you mean or things get real confusing.
When you’ve had enough, even if it sounds crazy, it’s time to say bye bye. Bye.
Something about how to get a genie off? Not sure.
Nobody’s that innocent.
Act like yourself. You make things very complicated when you don’t.
It’s not fair to deny someone of the cross they bear, if you’re the one who gave them that cross.
You can talk about it and carry on, but you really don’t know who you’re gonna fall for. Or… into.
When you’re breaking up with someone, you maybe don’t need list all the reasons.
The right circumstances, like, say… a flamenco guitar and a few drinks, can make anyone suddenly beautiful.
Even when sex is just sex, it’s not just sex.
Love is free. Say hell yes to it.
You don’t meet nice girls in coffee shops.
“Seeing other people” is usually kind of a joke.
Smart, funny, and nice can go a pretty long way.
It’s harder to be friends than lovers, and you shouldn’t try to mix the two.
You can’t go forcing something if it’s just not right.
If you’re making out with someone and they take off your pants, don’t go turning on the TV. It’s kind of immature.
The past is lost, but something might be found to take it’s place.
Love will turn you into a twitching, howling, bug-eyed maniac.
They pretty much covered everything.
