The purpose of this paper is to compare relationship advice that appears in a popular source (e.g., a Buzzfeed article, blog post, or a popular magazine like Cosmopolitan or Men’s Health) with actual research (3 peer-reviewed sources minimum) on the same topic.
Your job will be to determine the accuracy of the popular source as compared to published relationship research. If the advice is only partially or not at all supported by research, you must suggest ways actual research findings could have been conveyed instead.
You should use a minimum of 3 peer-reviewed sources for your research comparison (but you may find it helpful to use more) Please use APA in-text citations and an APA formatted reference page.
