She may feel misunderstood. When Audrey Roloff shared some thoughts about dating on Instagram, at least one follower was not very happy with her advice and told her it was “regressive.” The Little People, Big World alum quickly came to her own defense and tried to make it very clear what she did and did not mean by her advice.

“SINGLE LADIES 📢. To all my girls out there that are ‘hanging out’ with a guy that you’re just not sure about … (volume ⬆️),” Audrey, 28, began the caption on a photo of herself with her husband, Jeremy Roloff. “You can’t help who you fall in love with, but you CAN help who you spend time with. ⁣Be careful spending too much time with someone you don’t see yourself marrying because you just might fall in love with them … And falling in love with someone you don’t see yourself marrying only ends in hurt. Guard your heart so that you can give it undividedly to your future husband. You would want him to do the same for you. #ALoveLetterLife.”

Someone quickly left a negative comment and wrote, “This kind of advice is based on the antiquated idea that women are not pure or are somehow damaged after they have been with or ‘loved’ someone. It’s super regressive. You can love, get hurt, learn and be a better person for the one you chose to marry.” That prompted Audrey to respond, “Woah. Definitely don’t think those women are somehow damaged or not pure. That is not what I’m saying.”

But that fan was not the only one not pleased with the reality star’s message. “This is weird advice. Falling in love multiple times is a wonderful part of life,” another person replied. Audrey wrote back, “I’m just falling in love with the same person over and over again 😉💗.” A different follower responded, “Who says I want a husband?”

However, there were plenty of people who agreed with the former Little People, Big World mom’s advice, too. “Alllll the praise hands for this,” one person replied. Another wrote, “Such a big life lesson! This could save so much heartache.” Even Jill Duggar from Counting On took the time to comment, “👏🏼Amen!” Do you agree with Audrey, and do you think she defended herself well?
