By Holly

There are certain phrases you hear all the time that aren't actually true. That's why you need to be careful about what you believe. Here are a few pieces of cliche love advice you don't actually want to follow:

1 Love Means Never Having to Say You’re Sorry

Love Means Never Having to Say You’re Sorry If you truly love someone, then you'll apologize to them whenever you hurt their feelings. It's the least that you could do.

2 Love Conquers All

Unfortunately, love alone isn't enough. If the timing of your relationship isn't right, or if you two want different things out of life, then you aren't going to work out, even though you love each other.

3 Opposites Attract

If you don't have anything in common with your partner, what are you going to talk about? What types of dates are you going to go on? Your different personalities could cause problems.

4 Never Have Sex on the First Date

Never Have Sex on the First Date You should do whatever you feel comfortable with. If you want to sleep with someone on the first date, and they feel the same way, then go for it.

5 Trust Your Gut

Trust Your Gut Your gut isn't always right. You should have a reason behind your actions. Don't just go with your gut whenever it's time to make a decision, or you could end up making the wrong one.

6 You Had Me at Hello

You Had Me at Hello You might like someone as soon as you see them, but you can't love them the second they say hello to you. Love takes time to develop. It doesn't happen in an instant.

7 Actions Speak Louder than Words

Sometimes, you need to use your words. If you never tell your partner how much you love them, then they could end up feeling neglected.

8 Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover

Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover Even though you shouldn't judge someone based on their looks, you can usually spot a player when you see one. His appearance just might give his personality away.

9 It Comes when You Least Expect It

The pain you've experienced in the past is important. You shouldn't let it hold you back, but you shouldn't forget about what it taught you, either.

11 Men Should Pay for Dinner

Men Should Pay for Dinner You're just as capable of pulling out your wallet as your man is. You can pay if you want to.

12 Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

13 Everything Happens for a Reason

14 Love is Blind
