  • "Good for you; men are useless anyway!"

    One of Helen's* friends said exactly that, bitterly suggesting that they throw themselves a man-bashing party. "It was shocking. I wasn't happy with my ex, but I don't hate all men!" You may think a comment like this sounds sisterly and supportive, or even funny, but it may strike your friend—who could be feeling hopeful about her romantic future—as unbearably negative. If you're in a bad place in your own romantic life, then keep that part under wraps for now, and simply tell her, Listen, I've been out there for a while. Maybe the two of us could lean on each other. Expressing support is better than infecting her with anger, says Reynolds.
