Ben Higgins can dish it, but can he take it? Last week he shared his advice and learning experiences with Becca Kufrin, the new bachelorette. Now we’re sharing our dating advice with him.
A little feedback may do Ben some good as he dips his toe in the dating pool. Here’s what his best friends have to say:
Give up on dating. Ben is “unlovable,” after all. Just kidding. Too soon? My actual advice: Ben needs someone who believes in him and encourages his passions. My other advice: Let your instincts, family, and friends (especially me) guide you — not all the “geniuses” on social media.
Be present, be peaceful, and always persevere. Those ingredients can help Ben continue building a great story — one his friends are already proud of him for. I also think these things could connect him with the woman of his dreams!
What Ben’s mom thinks carries a lot of weight (she’s a wise woman after all). However, when it comes to dating, it’s not always cool to ask your parents. My advice for Ben is to consider someone he thinks his mom would get along with. If she is on board, it’ll be easier to take things to the next level.
With Ben’s recent fame, many people feel like they know him. And he cares about others a lot, which makes it hard when he knows a relationship isn’t meant to be. So, Ben, find a girl who challenges and supports you. Find a girl with a goofy side that makes you laugh. And be your own biggest fan.
Unfortunately we’ve all experienced the crazy that gets thrown at Ben since the show. I’ve told him to be patient and get to know a girl before committing. It’s not always easy to see good intentions. But Ben still has our small-town Indiana roots and deserves someone who appreciates this — away from the TV stuff.
