“There’s more to life than the boy on the football team”: 10 celebs on dating

There’s nothing worse than a bad date. You go to the cinema so you don’t have to talk, the film your date finds hilarious you think is boring, later in Pizza Express he sends his food back because there’s “not enough cheese” – all the while you’re thinking of how Rihanna doesn’t have to deal with this crap.

But if you thought this only happened to normals, you’re wrong. As these quotes prove, celebs also struggle with the topsy-turvy world of dating…

“In fifth grade, I went to meet a boy after school for an ice-cream cone, and I don’t think he spoke one word to me. I think he was a little nervous. I was a foot taller than him.”

The trials and tribulations of being a supermodel, Karlie Kloss.

“Relationships are hard, at any age… You’re on a date with someone you really like. It should be that simple, right?”

If Harry Styles struggles, there’s hope for all of us yet.

“I can’t tell if a girl is hitting on me or she just wants to be friends. And I don’t want to flirt with a girl if she thinks I’m just being her friend.”

Bella Thorne knows the neverending “will-she, won’t-she” all too well

“No one ever asks me out. I am lonely every Saturday night.”

We’re not sure if we believe you, Jennifer Lawrence.

“[It’s] just to stay on the couch and watch TV.”

Rihanna’s ideal date sounds very similar to ours tbh.

“I was dating this guy and we would spend all day text messaging each other. He thought he could tell that he liked me more because he actually spelled the word ‘you’ and I just put the letter ‘u’.”

Kelly Osbourne, like all of us, has so much to thank predictive text for.

“I’m not great at dating, but I need to do it to relax.”

That isn’t exactly the word we’d use, Lena Dunham

“Dating has become a sport and not about finding the person you love.”

Rashida Jones seems fed up of the dating world. Imagine if it made the Olympics, though.

“If you kiss on the first date and it’s not right, then there will be no second date. Sometimes it’s better to hold out and not kiss for a long time.”

Thanks for the tip, J-Lo.

“There’s more to life than dating the boy on the football team.”

If we only ever learnt one thing from Taylor Swift, it would be this.
