To say that we're excited for season two of Issa Rae's brilliant HBO comedy, Insecure, returning on July 23rd, would be a total understatement. The show that follows a group of thirtysomethings navigating their lives and loves in Los Angeles—is equal parts hilarious and heartfelt but also unafraid of telling the harsh truth.
There's no harsher truth in Insecure than in the ways that it depicted relationships throughout its first season. From Issa and Lawrence's floundering relationship to Issa's infidelity with Daniel to Lawrence's rebound sex—it's easy to recognize yourself in the characters and how they continue to fuck up their shit. And for those of us not in relationships, Molly, has the minefield of Los Angeles dating covered from the scrubs, the commitment phobic to her own neurotic hang ups. So, here's what Issa, Lawrence and Molly have told us NOT to do when falling in and out of love.
