Would You Listen To Relationship Advice From Jessica Simpson? 2010-04-03 08:00:00

Would You Listen to Relationship Advice From Jessica Simpson?

Jessica Simpson has had ups and downs when it comes to relationships, but she's learned a lot about herself over the past year and has chronicled some of her personal growth on The Price of Beauty. She recently shared some wisdom about finding lasting love, saying:

"It’s important for women not to find their confidence in a man. I think you really have to know who you are before you can truly fall in love and give your all, and I don’t think a man can define you. You have to own that. So if you’re ever with anyone who says you should change something about yourself then they should never fall in love with you in the first place."

Jess has gone through marriage, divorce, and the breakup of multiple high-profile romances, but her message of respecting yourself is a positive one regardless. So, tell us — would you listen to relationship advice from Jessica Simpson?

ckl401: this isn't a first amendment issue. The government is not telling Jessica she can't talk about relationships.And this isn't exactly groundbreaking advice.

I'm not saying that her advice isn't true, but she is not the first one to come up with this idea. I didn't need her telling me her "advice" to know to stay true to myself in any relationship. Instead of trying to give us advice, I wish she would take it herself; maybe then she would have a healthy relationship.

I agree with some of what she said. I agree that it is important to have a sense of self before getting into a series relationship, but when you are in a relationship you have to give and take. For example, if you are inflexible and stubborn, you can't just be" hey, he should love me the way I am." you have to change that flaw because there is no way things will work. I think that you shouldn't change who you are but you have to change flaws that affect your relationship and hold you back.

Eh. I'm indifferent to her, but every people are capable of sometimes giving positive message. Good for her for dispensing some based on her experience. I just don't seek out advice from her or any celebs really.

I think it's a smart message for women. It has been heard before but a lot of women still haven't realized this. Jessica has had a rocky past with relationships and seems to wear her heart on her sleeve, but she's maturing. She's learning to be more comfortable with who she is as she gets older. I really like her and her show The Price of Beauty. She's been bashed in the media for her actions and her body but she chooses to move on from that. I'm totally rooting for her!

I totally agree with AMSee. It's definitely a maturing trait to love yourself before someone else is able to love you. I remember going through this after my college boyfriend and I broke up when I was 23. We were together for 4 years and before I could even begin to get in a new relationship, I had to grow up, live on my own, learn to love myself, learn to understand my faults... That being said, it was nearly 3 years before I got into a new relationship with my current boyfriend. I loved myself, he loved himself, but we definitely had to change and adapt to one another to make us work. I feel like I have become a better person b/c of qualities in myself that he has brought out. I also feel like he is a better person, to the point where he calls me "an angel" b/c of how I helped him to realize his best potential. That at the age of 30, going out to bars every night was not the most productive decision, especially when trying to advance at work. Of course there's a lot more, 3 years later, but I've clearly written enough. :)

LOL! A lot of fans or haters here? Well...I like her! I have since we were both teens (I'm her age). You can have freedom of speech here. It's not like Jess will read all your comments and go home and cry over em.

Nope. She's been divorced once and dumped 3 times, why would I??

I think her core message is one we've all heard before. Don't change yourself just to get a guy. Don't change to suit their demands, etc. Its relationship 101. But she doesn't seem to live it herself, so what makes her the expert to offer advice? And that part at the end? If he wants you to change, he shouldn't fall in love with you? Its like she read a bunch of self-help relationship books and is regurgitating the messages... incorrectly.

I don't know, I actually like what she said. Plus, we cannot judge a woman based on her past relationships. I am sure we have all had growth from a relationship not working out, and I will give her the benefit of the doubt that she learned from them all, as well!

I have to admit, that bit of "advice" from Jess is true and makes sense...
