30 pieces of dating advice from literature

We may moan about our other half every now and again, but like Mr T in one of those notorious rants of his, we pity the fool that has to embark on that precarious venture known as dating.

Dating and its hoped for consequence, love, are tricky things to get right. Naturally, films can help with dating advice, but we also like to think that we’re equal opportunists (!!!) when it comes to matters of the heart (and bedroom), so we’ll often throw the floor open to literature too.

As Nietzsche once remarked: “There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.”

So gen up on these 30 pieces of dating/romance/love advice. And remember to thank us in your groom’s speech. You’re welcome.
