Now that Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel has come out with her new book,Â I Suck At Relationships So You Don’t Have To, we’ve been getting some great tips on the dos and donts of dating, and for single young womanÂ such as myself- I will take all the help I can get! Even though the SkinnyGirl mogul says she’s not that great at dating, she is making sure her fans can be good at it, and in a new interview she dished out to Haute Living some more tips for us by sharing her personal experiences.
“I think I suck at choosing the right people for me. I don’t think that I actually suck when I’m in a relationship, but I think that I haven’t gone with my gut enough. I’ve made decisions out of fear, which is the biggest mistake people can make. You have to make decisions out of truth. I am very,very aware of what my mistakes are and I hope that people learn from my mistakes.”
Inspired! Not only did she share what she wants fans to get out of her book, but also gives us some advice when it comes to handling a breakup. “Don’t medicate by drinking too much, eating too much, or putting your face in a pint full of ice cream. Go out, be confident, look good, try to feel good, and don’t beat yourself up and do things that are self-destructive. Don’t text and call and drink and obsess-its so hard.” (yes it is!) “I really think that you should process and go through it. Leave it all on the table and be vulnerable so you don’t second guess yourself and then build yourself back up.”
Since all of these things relate to my life story, I don’t know about you guys but I’m ditching the pints of ice cream and junk-food and slapping on some heels and lipstick. Who’s with me!?
