Old-timey dating rules get a bad rap for good reason. Overall, they tend to propagate silly, non-feminist notions about finding love: “Wait for him to ask you out. A lady never makes the first move.” “Follow the three-day rule: Don’t contact your date until three whole days have passed.” But the truth is, not all of the advice that dating columnists foisted on singles back in the day was bad. Read a handful of these “rules” (clearly not the ones mentioned above), and you might just find a juicy little…

For most of us, going to an ex for relationship advice might sound a little strange. But for Emmalene Bates, it’s her first port of call. The 27-year-old has remained good friends with her ex-boyfriend Charles, despite a “traumatic” break-up several years ago. “I find his advice on relationships particularly valuable, as he can call me out on repeating past patterns or behaviours,” she says. “It’s a certain kind of insight that even my closest friends don’t always have.” Being friends with a former partner is something many of us…
