Love Advice From Celebrities Like Taylor Swift, Niall Horan, Drake + More [PHOTOS]
Have you ever been so burned by love — or, really, the loss of it — that you could practically feel the cavern of your chest cave in, as though your insides shriveled up and died so completely that there was nothing left to hold up the shell that is your body? The mass of your flesh and blood? If so, you’ve come to the right place.
Love is one of those fundamental experiences that bonds us together, the world over, as human beings. There is little doubt you’ve experienced it in some form, be it in its infancy, at its full force or even the pain of the unrequited — love is unavoidable, unless you are Voldemort. And while we often think of celebrities as these otherworldly beings who don’t experience feelings in the same capacity as the rest of the human population, the fact of the matter is they’ve all loved and lost, just as we all have.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day we decided to compile some of the best advice on dating and love that we could find. Take Taylor Swift, for example. Her successes and losses in love have been public knowledge for years, but she manages to take it all in stride, release some killer albums and break world records while she heals. If you’ve ever wondered what kind of advice she — among others — might have for the unlucky in love, you’ve come to the right place. From Ariana Grande and Drake to Niall Horan and Vanessa Hudgens, it’s all very varied and very real. Check out the gallery above to find out what they had to say.
Remember, if ever you feel like the last heartbreak you’ve suffered will be your last, you know, because you’re giving up on love completely, Maya Angelou said it best: “Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.” Or buy a box of discounted chocolate the day after Valentine’s Day and be your own boyfriend.
