Celebrities reveal their best relationship Advice

No relationships are completely alike but some truths are universal in the realm of love. To prove that point, here are some helpful tips from your favorite celebs on how to sustain the spark, how to love yourself, and how to move on if things don’t work out.

1. Meryl Streep

“When you’re dating somebody, you let them in and allow them to see you as you really are. Know your vulnerabilities and your strengths. Be the best version of yourself so that you can be there for your partner.”

2. Lena Dunham

“I think women are conditioned to stand by their man and watch them make it to the top,” Lena told Glamour. “But most men never believe the person they get into a relationship with is going to rise any higher than before. It takes a very special, evolved person to be able to deal with changes within a relationship.”

3. Lady Gaga

“If you’re lying in bed next to someone who really doesn’t make you feel like the goddess that you are, you need to rediscover what you truly want and need.” Lady Gaga told fans.

4. Jennifer Lawrence

“When we’re busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other,” Jennifer Lawrence said of then-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult. “Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesn’t text back or call. Life’s super-busy, you know what they’re doing, and you trust them. At least, we can both have our own lives and know that we have each other.”

5. Taylor Swift

“I think it’s healthy for everyone to go a few years without dating, just because you need to get to know who you are,” Taylor Swift told Esquire. “I’ve done more examining and figuring out how to cope with things on my own than I would have if I had been focusing on someone else’s emotions and schedule. You always need to be able to rely on yourself before you can rely on another person or have them rely on you.”

6. Ellen DeGeneres

“Find out who you are and be that person,” Ellen said in an interview with Katie Couric. “Find that truth, live that truth, and everything else will come.”

7. Neil Patrick Harris

“Honeymoon phases end so here’s a challenge: How do you keep redefining your relationship? I think you have to find new elements that turn you on, and not only sexually,” says Neil Patrick Harris. “That sort of made me re-fall in love with him.”

8. Kim Kardashian

“I have this best friend who understands me and helps me through all my tough experiences, and vice versa, you know?” Kim says about finding real love with Kanye West. “I used to think, ‘Well, can you really have it all? The truth, the excitement, and the passion?’ Now I know you can.”
