I don't know exactly how this started, but a lot of my friends (especially my guy friends) come to me for advice. Maybe it's because I am a good listener, or that I think from a logical, not emotional standpoint. Either way, I like it. Most of the advice that people ask me for is about relationships. I've helped guys think of creative places for dates, if a girl is playing games with them, and if the girl is losing interest. But, I also have been asked about financial solutions for various things or about friendship issues.
However, I don't seem to get complimented on it very much.
I'd like to assume that I am good at giving advice, since the same 5-6 people keep coming to me to talk about stuff, plus others at random. I mean, I keep the discussions between me and that person (that to me shows that I am trusting), I listen to what they have to say, and I ask questions to get a better picture of the situation before I start to offer them solutions. When someone posts on Facebook about issues, I try to offer them solutions too. I'm not saying I'm an expert on such things, but I don't receive any uncomfortable or angry responses. I also have been told by one person that I should try to pursue some sort of consultant-type of job where I can just give random advice to people. I don't even know where I would start if I seriously considered going that route.
Anyways, I guess I would just like to have some reassurance that I am great at giving advice. Everyone can benefit from hearing more "thank yous" each day :-)
