horrible yet popular dating advice

I read this article entitled, “Books With Worst Dating Advice Ever” last week on Huffington Post and initially it had very little cerebral effect on me because I agree with the article. But then it dawned on me a while later (because sometimes I’m a little slow) that the books cited were/are very popular and some are best sellers so apparently a LOT of people won’t agree with this article or me that these books are dispensers of the worst dating advice ever.
