The Best Person to Ask for Dating Advice

If there’s one thing a big sister can teach you—besides how to do a flawless French braid—it’s what not to do in your romantic relationships: Many young women turn to their older sisters for dating advice, according to a new study scheduled to be published in the journal Family Relations.

For the study, 28 participants—younger and older sisters—filled out questionnaires about their perceptions on relationships and dating. Researchers found that most of the younger women preferred to share their intimate relationship secrets with older sisters (as opposed to with parents or grandparents). Interestingly, younger sisters said they learned more from an older sister’s negative relationship experiences than they did from her positive ones.

But love isn’t the only thing your big sis can educate you about. You can also pick up a few life lessons, like this woman did from her sister.
