Charlize Theron, Bella Thorne & More Celebs Who Totally Get the Dating Struggle
As I said a couple of years ago, even if you, by the world’s standards, are perfect and great dating material – you’re wealthy, famous, successful, and sexy – you are still not guaranteed an easy or great dating life or marriage.
Look at all the celebrities who meet all the criteria that Christian and secular dating advisors tell us we should gain before we are worthy to date, yet who can’t get a date, or they go through one break up after another.
BRITNEY SPEARS (pop singer)
The next time you’re sitting there, trying to find a way to get out of a really awkward, terrible date without being obvious about it, just think to yourself: Britney Spears has to deal with this, too. “I had a really bad date. I mean, it was really bad,” she recently told Marie Claire. “I’ve been single for ages and had a date with a guy I liked. I was getting anxious, worrying he wouldn’t like me.”
She continued: “We went to the movies, but I could tell right away it wasn’t working. It was sort of awkward. So after the movie, I came home and that was it. He just wasn’t that into me. I liked him. He knew that. But he definitely didn’t feel the same. It happens to everybody. Being famous doesn’t make you any different.”
Finally, your childhood dream of being just like Britney has come true … if not quite in the way you had always hoped.
ZAC EFRON (movie actor)
The next time you feel like you’ve been swiping for forever without meeting even a single candidate for a long-term relationship, don’t fret. Even Efron has trouble finding love online.
“Amazingly, when I signed up for Tinder, nobody swiped me!” he told the U.K.’s The Sunday Times. “They thought it was fake … That never happened.”
JENNIFER LAWRENCE (movie actor)
Yes, even J.Law has to deal with boys playing games and hurting her feelings. “No one ever asks me out,” she told Vogue in 2015. “I am lonely every Saturday night. Guys are so mean to me. I know where it’s coming from, I know they’re trying to establish dominance, but it hurts my feelings. I’m just a girl who wants you to be nice to me.”
