The first time I was pregnant, Kanye and I were dating, and I was just being introduced to the world of fashion. I wanted to work with a bunch of different stylists, and when you work with a new stylist, everyone wants to possess your look.
Growing up, I didn’t get the talk of ‘Make sure boys take you on a date and treat you right.’ So I was the girl who wasn’t dating and would just text. I dated these guys who didn’t have jobs, and I would always be paying. At one point, I remember looking in the mirror and thinking, ‘You’re too pretty and cool to be treated like this.’
I’ve thought long and hard about this, and I think a lot of the dysfunction around dating has to do with men having the control.

I’m the girl who – I call it girl-next-door-itis – the hot guy is friends with and gets all his relationship advice from but never considers dating.

I grew up, I had three uncles and… I loved Uncle Donald because he gave me dating advice, and I was, like, 5. But the other thing that I found fascinating about my Uncle Donald is he dressed up like a woman. And so I grew up around all of these men who dressed like women, so when I hear that, I don’t hear a cause. I hear my family.
I was tired of a system where women waited around for men to send them a message or ask them out. With Bumble – first a dating app, now a social network that helps you make empowering connections in love, life, and business – women had to make the first move, or the match was void.
I like the idea of dating, but I’m not dating anyone exclusively, particularly right now. It’s hard to be in a relationship unless you’re ready to go public with it. So it’s a lot easier for me to not be in a relationship. I really don’t want that part of my life to be tabloid fodder.
When I was in high school, the genders were so separate from each other. If you weren’t ‘dating’ somebody, you couldn’t just be friends with somebody.

I need a life outside of soccer. So I very much welcome, you know, new love interests and dating and friends and family.
I prefer ordinary girls – you know, college students, waitresses, that sort of thing. Most of the girls I go out with are just good friends. Just because I go out to the cinema with a girl, it doesn’t mean we are dating.

My girlfriend bought me a down jacket, she said it fit my personality.
I have 20,000 girlfriends, all around the world.

I was dating this guy and we would spend all day text messaging each other. And he thought that he could tell that he liked me more because he actually spelt the word ‘YOU’ and I just put the letter ‘U’.

What I remember most about junior homecoming was my date getting sick afterwards. That kinda sucked. Then, senior year, someone got gum in her hair when we were dancing. She had to get one of the chaperones to take her to the office and cut up her hair. I felt really bad for her, but it worked out fine.
It is an extra dividend when you like the girl you’ve fallen in love with.
A bachelor’s life is no life for a single man.
You know, I had my mother and my father convincing me that he would be going back to Hollywood and he’d be back with the actresses and dating them and that he wasn’t serious about me at all. So I had him saying one thing to me and my parents telling me something else.
Courtship is to marriage, as a very witty prologue to a very dull play.
Your goal in an online dating profile and in your first message to somebody is to strike up a conversation.
Honestly, my dating life according to the tabloids is very exciting, and the most hilarious thing is that it’s nowhere near as exciting as the tabloids have ever made it out to be.
I’m so an all-or-nothing person in dating, always. I’m big on not wasting time. And so, yeah, if something’s not working, it’s time to not hold people back.

In my dreams, I could be a Princess, and that’s what I was. Like most little girls, I believed nothing less than a Prince could make my dreams come true.
I’m currently single, so I want to have fun! As for what guys need to do to date out of their league, it’s all about the swagger. If you have confidence, you can get pretty much any girl.
I urge you children to be patient with your parents. If they seem to be out of touch on such vital issues as dating, clothing styles, modern music, and use of family cars, listen to them anyway. They have the experience that you lack.
Well, dating has become a sport and not about finding the person you love.
My parents always looked like they loved being together. That’s what I took from them, and that’s how my wife and I are. I still feel like we’re dating.
I don’t really talk about my personal life. It’s a strange and funny and weird thing. Sometimes you have a conversation with someone and the paparazzi snaps a picture of you and people decide you’re dating. If I try to answer everything people say, I would be up all night.
Thank God I never got in a fight. All of the jock dudes hated me, but all of their girlfriends thought I was nice so they wouldn’t touch me. It was infuriating to them.
I didn’t have a financial need, and I wasn’t very gifted at relationships. I probably was more like what we think of boys as being: hard to pin down and wary of commitment.
I don’t date my girlfriend because she’s a model. I date her because I love her.
The best companies in the world have all had predecessors. ‘YouTube’ was a dating site. You always have to evolve into something else.
Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.
All my life, men have told me I wasn’t pretty enough – even the men I was dating. And I’d be like, ‘Well, why are you with me, then?’ It’s always been men putting me down just like my dad. To this day when someone says I’m cute, I can’t see it. I don’t see it no matter what anybody says.
Stuff about me dating Kim Kardashian – I have no idea where that came from and all these other rumors. I don’t think I’m that type.
I’m way too famous and rich to be on a dating app, but if I get very desperate by the time I’m 60, I’ll go on Tinder. Or I’ll go on ‘Millionaire Matchmaker’; I’ll call Patti Stanger.
You can draw inspiration from anything. If you’re a good storyteller, you can take a dirty look somebody gives you, or if a guy you used to have flirtations with starts dating a new girl, or somebody you’re casually talking to says something that makes you so mad – you can create an entire scenario around that.
It’s just me and my 6-month-old puppy. I am not dating anyone.
I’m dating a woman now who, evidently, is unaware of it.
For me, I’ve learned if I want a very stable, normal relationship, where I’ll be like, ‘Okay, this is nice, I know what’s going to happen in a month,’ it’s probably better to date outside the industry. But you can’t help who you fall for. It’s our dating pool.
Dating is fun. It’s light: There’s courting; there’s the interesting, exciting text messaging and flirting. There’s no weight. When you start getting into relationships, you really start having to consider each other in your lives, and I think that’s really important.
I personally have always hated dating. I was never vulnerable or insecure in any part of my life, but I would become that way with a guy because they have control, according to society, when it comes to dating.
‘Christian Mingle’ is about a young, modern, single woman. She’s trying to achieve it all – a successful career, amazing friends, and finding Mr. Right. She stumbles into the world of online dating looking for an instant ‘soul mate solution,’ but ultimately ends up taking a personal journey transforming her life.
I’m not old-fashioned when it comes to dating, but there’s something nice about a guy pulling out a girl’s chair and opening the door for her, even if it’s just in the beginning.
When men I have dated over the years whined about, ‘Oh, you make no time for me’ – see ya! I just dumped them. I don’t need that pressure in my life.

Never let a fool kiss you, or a kiss fool you.
I started my blog back in 2009 because every Internet business and marketing seminar I watched at the time told me I had to. I had been trying to get a business started selling dating and life advice and was struggling.

I enjoy dating. I love first dates. I think they’re incredibly fascinating studies in human psychology. When you sit down across from someone on a first date and things are going alright, you talk objectives. We want to win each other over, so how do you win someone over? You have to put the best foot forward.
I’m not very experienced with boys or the whole dating thingy.
Kissing someone is pretty intimate, actually very intimate, and your heart always kind of skips a beat before you do that.
Things were a lot simpler in Detroit. I didn’t care about anything but boyfriends.
Anybody I’m dating, I don’t want them to talk about my music. I don’t talk about my music to them.
When my parents were dating, they were very poor, so my dad couldn’t take my mom out. They would go to the grocery store and pick out funny looking vegetables. When I grew up, we’d still go and find the ones with personality.
I don’t have a type. But one thing I can say from my dating experience is that a physical attraction will only take you so far. So you definitely have to have a strong intellectual connection as well.
I don’t have a girlfriend. But I do know a woman who’d be mad at me for saying that.
Early on, when my wife and I were dating, we went to the grocery store, and I told her that sometimes I just buy birthday cakes, and I eat them. And she said: ‘Really? I do, too.’
I have an urge to communicate. I think I’m a change from what it would be like dating a normal guy who doesn’t talk too much.
People get married for a wide array of reasons and have all sorts of expectations of how marriage will change the relationship. And while it’s true that turning the person you’re dating into a legal partner does affect certain things, those who expect marriage to be a cure-all for all your relationship woes are sorely mistaken.
I’m typically single. I’m the girl who – I call it girl-next-door-itis – the hot guy is friends with and gets all his relationship advice from but never considers dating.
I want a guy I can go hiking with, who wants to do outdoorsy stuff. It’s so much fun to be out in nature and who better to do that with than the person you’re dating?
I think dating apps are keeping us apart.
If I’ve been dating someone for, say, five months, and she cheats on me, I don’t think it would be worth it. I’m not committed enough to the situation to give her a second chance.

When I first got started in this whole world of online connecting, we were combating this antiquated stereotype of who used online dating, and we really set out to make it popular with millennials. What I find to be so fascinating now is, I’m seeing an inverse in that trend.
Dating has taught me what I want and don’t want, who I am, and who I want to be.
In this day and age, I ask anyone I date right away: ‘Are you married? Are you in a relationship with anyone? Does anyone think they’re in a relationship with you?’ And by the way, if someone says, ‘Yes, I am dating other people,’ that’s not necessarily a deal breaker. But you have to communicate it, not hide it.
I tried to make up for being 5 ft. 3 in. by affecting a strut and adopting the voice of a much bigger man… dating tall, beautiful women… But nothing I could do, after Ava had left me, would add a single inch to my height.
You like someone, you court each other, you get into a relationship. You’re answerable to each other. Whereas, the non-answerability of dating, my God, I don’t know if I would ever be able to.
People say, ‘Just say who you’re dating. Then people will stop being so ravenous about it.’ It’s like, No they won’t! They’ll ask for specifics.
I had to find a diet that would kick me back into dating shape, because I know that I can’t date at size 8. I have to date at size 2. And it’s just a fact of nature. Go get your injections and your chemical peels. You gotta look good to attract a man.
Which is, I’m an optimist that two people can be together to work out their conflicts. And that commitment, I think, might be what love is, because they both grow from their relationship.
I like to think I’ll just be walking down the street one day and stop and meet someone, like, ‘Oh my God, you’re awesome,’ and then we start dating.
I truly believe that what we’re seeing with online dating is very similar to what happened with the Myspace-Facebook era, where Myspace was once this place for online connecting for a very select group of young people. And then Facebook kind of hit at this moment where it was acceptable for everybody to do it.
I’m in love with love and totally believe in marriage, but that’s not even on my radar right now. I am not putting energy into dating.
I’m honest about the journey I’ve been on, so I definitely don’t take dating lightly anymore.
A bachelor never quite gets over the idea that he is a thing of beauty and a boy forever.
There’s nothing wrong with taking yourself out of the dating pool. You don’t need to be in a relationship because that’s what society expects of you or because your grandmother thinks you need to be married by a certain date. Those days are over. Instead, take a step back and say, ‘I’m OK alone.’
I wouldn’t tell you anything about anybody I cared about because it becomes entertainment for other people, and it sort of just cheapens everything in your life. I would never tell you if I was dating anybody.
I’m opening up my heart to the idea of dating. It’s funny – my friends would always come to me for romantic advice. I know nothing, and things have changed since I was dating in high school! I’m really trying hard to spend this time working on myself.
Are we solving the world’s problems by allowing women to make the first move on a dating app? No. But I do believe we are helping to change some very archaic norms.
I don’t like going out on a date unless I know the broad a little bit beforehand. By the way, ‘broad’ to me is not a detrimental term for women; it’s simply another word for female. Anyway, I don’t really go out a whole lot, because there aren’t many girls I like to take out and spend a whole evening with – at least not an evening in public.
My perfect guy wears converse, is totally laid back, and doesn’t worry about being cool.
I heard on public radio recently, there’s a thing called Weed Dating. Singles get together in a garden and weed and then they take turns, they keep matching up with other people. Two people will weed down one row and switch over with two other people. It’s in Vermont. I don’t think I’d be very good at Weed Dating.
I’m a fixer, unfortunately. I’m like, ‘Oh, I can fix you.’ But it’s not just guys I’m dating anymore. It’s this entire legion of young girls who tell me they need me to maintain any sort of sanity or peace.
I’m quite sensitive to women. I saw how my sister got treated by boyfriends. I read this thing that said when you are in a relationship with a woman, imagine how you would feel if you were her father. That’s been my approach, for the most part.
Wine comes in at the mouth And love comes in at the eye; That’s all we shall know for truth Before we grow old and die.
Do not just look at your boyfriend as just a boyfriend. Look at him as a friend, too.
My boyfriend and I broke up. He wanted to get married and I didn’t want him to.
My mom is going to kill me for talking about sleeping with people. But I don’t want to put myself in the position where I’m in a monogamous relationship right now. I’m not dating just one person. ‘Sex and the City’ changed everything for me because those girls would sleep with so many people.
I don’t think a powerful man would be interesting unless he’d be nice, attractive, with or without the power. Men are interested in powerful men. Women are interested in terrific men!
OKCupid’s model is almost entirely based on advertising, which is the way most online media is monetized these days, whether it’s the news or whether it’s sports, and we think online dating is going to evolve in the exact same way.
I’ve been in plenty of situations where someone I’m dating had more time for a console than me.
Women were very, very good at ‘Pong’. It was part of the dating scene. The number of people who told me they met their wife or husband playing ‘Pong’ was huge. They were shoulder to shoulder, talking and playing. It was body contact and verbal contact.
Everyone in the dating business wants to know what women want – it’s the billion-dollar question. But it’s simple: put one in charge, and you find out.
No matter how love-sick a woman is, she shouldn’t take the first pill that comes along.
I don’t mind dating younger men now.

Dating in Los Angeles can be hard, which makes it all the better when you meet a really nice guy.
After a number of years dating, we decided we were good partners.
While I am aware of no counsel on whether kissing should be reserved only for post-mission dating or courtship, I am aware of plenty of counsel concerning honesty in our actions and treating others with respect and kindness. Casual attitudes about expressions of affection such as kissing can cause much grief and heartache.
Some women flirt more with what they say, and some with what they do.
Dating is kind of hard. Like dinner or something like that. Like a forced awkward situation is very strange. Especially for me, for some reason.
When you are young, do not get involved in steady dating. When you reach an age where you think of marriage, then is the time to become so involved.
My wife and I got engaged in New Hampshire at this lake house that her family’s had forever, and it’s on Lake Winnipesaukee. And so we went there every summer as we were dating.
When I was five years old, I told my parents that I wanted to take ballet. So, ballet was the focus of my life… until puberty. Then I discovered boys and started dating a guy with a mohawk who’d come to my ballet class and freak everybody out. Shortly after that is when I quit.
You know, the man of my dreams might walk round the corner tomorrow. I’m older and wiser and I think I’d make a great girlfriend. I live in the realm of romantic possibility.

Rumors about me? Calista Flockhart, Pam Anderson, and Matt Damon. That’s who I’m dating.
I’ve been dating since I was 15 years old, and I just don’t seem to do it well.
I believe that often people even stay in bad relationships longer than they should because the fear of the pain of dating is scarier than the pain of a bad relationship!
Love is like a virus. It can happen to anybody at any time.
I was inspired by the men who walked on the moon. It really was my inspiration, I think, you know, as a kid of 9 years old – I know I’m dating myself, but – I thought, ‘What a cool job!’
Real magic in relationships means an absence of judgment of others.
It seems essential, in relationships and all tasks, that we concentrate only on what is most significant and important.
When you really don’t like a guy, they’re all over you, and as soon as you act like you like them, they’re no longer interested.
You can’t keep changing men, so you settle for changing your lipstick.
I do like dating cynics – they tend to be incredibly funny.
You don’t need to know who I’m dating. You don’t need to know what I’m doing. I’m fine with everybody not knowing that.
I love having boyfriends. I love dating. I do not want a husband in my house.
I’m dating myself by saying this, but I was the test audience for ‘Space Invaders.’ I remember when that was the first game that wasn’t a pinball game. I spent a lot of money on ‘Space Invaders,’ in the form of quarters, of course.
I don’t know any of us who are in relationships that are totally honest – it doesn’t exist.
Dating is different when you get older. You’re not as trusting, or as eager to get back out there and expose yourself to someone.
The term ‘alpha female’ originated in my field of animal behavior, but has acquired new meaning. It refers to women who are in charge, for example, by flirting and dating on their own terms. It is also used maliciously for a loud-mouthed, controlling woman who has no patience with deviating opinions.
Up until age 40, most men are just not as mature as women. So, it makes sense that a lot of women date up in age a bit.
As and when I get into a relationship, I’ll flaunt her to the world. I’m looking for a soul mate, and in any case, I’m not very much for casual dating. I’m such a simple guy away from this dating-shating business.
There’s only two people in your life you should lie to… the police and your girlfriend.
We all prospect, and don’t even know we’re doing it. When you start the dating process, you are actually prospecting for the person you want to marry. When you’re interviewing employees, you are prospecting for someone who will best fit your needs.
I highly suggest marriage to all my friends who are dating.
Mary Tyler Moore was a working woman whose story lines were not always about dating and men. They were about work friendships and relationships, which is what I feel my adult life has mostly been about.

I’ve never done online dating, but first of all, I have a book out called ‘Make It Last Forever: The Do’s and The Dont’s,’ which led me to do the online dating thing. A lot of people respect my relationship songs, so they can pretty much trust me.
I’m very happy to be part of a generation where you don’t have to say that you’re gay. It’s just like, ‘I’m dating a dude,’ or, ‘I’m dating a girl,’ and I love it. I think it’s a great time.
When I started dating I had this kind of Romeo and Juliet, fateful romantic idea about love which was almost that you were a victim and there was a lot of pain involved and that was how it should be.
I hate dates. It becomes a weird auditioning process. And I’ve never had normal dating.

If your best friend has stolen your girlfriend, it does become life and death.
I think it’s important to figure out you and to have fun and to be dating and to figure out what you like and what you don’t like. It’s what growing up is all about.
A month alone would make me so happy. Not good for my dating prospects.
If you can lie, you can act, and if you can lie to crazy girlfriends, you can act under pressure.
People could rationally decide that prolonged relationships take up too much time and effort and that they’d much rather do other kinds of things. But most people are afraid of rejection.
I don’t have much experience, but the few times when I would go on a date with a girl – like when I was 12 – there was a lot of sharing, and a lot of talking, and a lot of asking how I am. They thought we were dating, and I was sort of hoping to meet their brothers.
When someone is good, but it doesn’t seem like their world will collapse if they don’t get the part, it’s more appealing. It’s like dating someone: You don’t want someone who’s too into you.

My husband, after two weeks of dating, asked me, if our relationship were to work out, would I be OK with our first boy being named Ace.
Taylor Swift dates guys so she can write a breakup song about them. I don’t think she’s dating for love – I think she’s dating for creativity. So let’s get her off the market and put her in dating detox. If she really wants love, she has to stop writing music about them.
I have put gay dating on the map.
When I don’t have a girlfriend, who I am answerable to, I can go out and hang with people. But whether you go for a movie with someone or a meal or a drive, it is assumed that you are dating that person.
I’ve never been Romeo who meets a girl and falls for her immediately. It’s been a much slower process for me each time I’ve gone into a relationship.

Dating someone on the opposite end of the happy spectrum teaches you an incredible amount of patience.
I used to be a real prince charming if I went on a date with a girl. But then I’d get to where I was likely to have a stroke from the stress of keeping up my act. I’ve since learned the key to a good date is to pay attention on her.

The Google algorithm was a significant development. I’ve had thank-you emails from people whose lives have been saved by information on a medical website or who have found the love of their life on a dating website.
Personally, I don’t like a girlfriend to have a husband. If she’ll fool her husband, I figure she’ll fool me.
I give dating advice on a regular basis. It’s not that I’m any expert, but it’s always nice to share that with your friends.
Practically all the relationships I know are based on a foundation of lies and mutually accepted delusion.
I’m not the girl who always has a boyfriend. I’m the girl who rarely has a boyfriend.

Saks helps to empower women through how they look and feel – and Bumble wants to give all women a platform to connect with other empowered women, whether that’s in dating, friendship, or business.

I’d got to that age when I was out on a date with a guy and I would be thinking: Don’t mention your age, don’t mention that you want a child – because they would just run out the door.
In the dating game, the world is difficult because people don’t communicate, or they communicate, but then their actions speak louder than words.
As I’ve told Tyler, there’s not a really easy place between being single and being married for us now. We’re just so busy that the logistics of our career make dating impossible.

It was just that we had this phenomenal honeymoon relationship that just kept on going.
I don’t really believe in rules, but I do like old-fashioned dating where you don’t call the guy until he calls you. I don’t think it’s like he’s got to do this and that’s the rule.
However successful you are, there is no substitute for a close relationship. We all need them.

Right now I’m pretty single… My career is my boyfriend.
If there hadn’t been women we’d still be squatting in a cave eating raw meat, because we made civilization in order to impress our girlfriends.
The prospect of dating someone in her twenties becomes less appealing as you get older. At some point in your life, your tolerance level goes down and you realize that, with someone much younger, there’s nothing really to talk about.
I was a weird teenager. My mother was actually worried because I didn’t have any interest in dating in my teenage years. I had all this desire to pursue my passions like ballet, then sailing, then music, so I didn’t have any emptiness to fill.
When I left Tinder, I had no intention of getting back into the dating industry. What I ultimately wanted to do was start this contagious complimentary social network, where kindness was at the helm.
Nothing defines humans better than their willingness to do irrational things in the pursuit of phenomenally unlikely payoffs. This is the principle behind lotteries, dating, and religion.
I’ve had two romances since moving to Las Vegas. One was with somebody 12 years older than me, and the other was the same age, and neither worked out. I know people still think of me as one of Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends, and he of course was much older than me, but that was a whole different lifestyle and a different kind of dating.
I’ve always been intellectually restless, but it is the building part of it that most interests me. It is the constructing of the team that is my favorite part. Anyone who is familiar with the history of the A’s franchise, even dating back to Philadelphia, knows that every five or 10 years, you have to tear it apart and rebuild it.
There are hundreds of millions of people on dating apps every day, but apparently, no such apps cater solely to sports fans.
There are big parts of my life that I don’t share. I don’t share myself eating dinner with my family. I don’t talk about who I’m dating. That’s private; that’s me.
Appearance is something you should definitely consider when you’re going out. Have your girlfriend clip your nails or something like that.
Good-looking individuals are treated better than homely ones in virtually every social situation, from dating to trial by jury. If everyday experience hasn’t convinced you of this, there’s research that will.
Kathie Lee and I were working together on our ‘Live’ morning show when she started dating Frank. I always loved trying to get her to tell me about her new romance, and it wasn’t long before we were watching them take their vows in front of close friends in Southhampton.
I run a dating site, but I will gladly tell someone, ‘Do not date someone if it’s not right.’ And don’t settle. This settling thing is insane. I’ve literally had to force friends out of relationships because they want to be married by a certain age, so they just date these guys that are not right for them.
A seersucker suit is one of the most iconic styles dating from the 1920s and is still a gentleman’s best bet when it’s hot and sticky.
Whenever I date a guy, I think, ‘Is this the man I want my children to spend their weekends with?’
I change my mind so much I need two boyfriends and a girlfriend.
My views are very fluctuating. I have very contradictory takes on the subject. Dating is easier, while marriage is hard work. You see your friends having early divorces, and on the other hand, you see your parents having a successful marriage.
I had a crazy life for a teenager. I lived in New Jersey, but I’d go to Vermont for three weeks, join a commune, take pictures with the guy I was dating, come back home, and post photos.
A simple compliment goes a really long way – for a guy to just come over and say, ‘You have great hair’ or ‘I really like your dress,’ and then just smile and walk away. That’s a great move, because he’s sort of putting himself out there by doing that, but it won’t lead to any embarrassment if the girl isn’t interested.
A lot of people – boys – look at me differently. They think that if they date me, they are gay because they are dating another boy. In instances like this, I feel almost excluded, if that’s the right word. I feel like I’m being put on a different shelf.
I’m friends with a lot of my exes, but it took time. We didn’t just get into it. I don’t think you can be friends until you’re cool with them dating someone else. That’s when you know.
I’m not a dating person.
I hate being the heartbreaker. Hate it. If I date somebody and it doesn’t work out, it’s another nightmare for me.
Choose a wife rather by your ear than your eye.
In my own relationships, I know that I should break up with someone who doesn’t encourage me to be strong and make my own choices and do what’s best in my life, so if you’re dating someone who doesn’t want you to be the best person you can be, you shouldn’t be dating them.
I learned how quickly I could go from having never met someone to having the world think I’m dating them.
Whenever you have an ex, and they’re like, ‘I hope we can still be friends!’ and you weren’t friends before you started dating, then what do you go back to, really?
My philosophy of dating is to just fart right away.
That’s the awful thing about dating. Tight underwear. We would all like to be in a big bra and pants and when you are in a secure relationship you can do that.
When it comes to dating, I’m straightforward and traditional with a twist.
In literature as in love, we are astonished at what is chosen by others.
Someone who’ll bring some normalcy into my life and help me stay in touch with reality. That is something I’m curious about. There are so many actors who are married to people from non-film backgrounds, and their marriages are successful. I’m tired of dating actresses.
Women always try to see the one good part of The Weird Guy because the dating landscape is so bleak. Women will say, ‘He’s very odd, but he likes to cook. He’s creepy, but he makes good pancakes!’
When I was first divorced, I started dating younger women, and it was really exciting. But after a while I was like, ‘This is just dumb.’
I like the bad-boy types. Generally the guy I’m attracted to is the guy in the club with all the tattoos and nail polish. He’s usually the lead singer in a punk band and plays guitar. But my serious boyfriends are relatively clean-cut, nice guys. So it’s strange.
I came out to my parents when I was a junior in college. And it was pretty fine. They were more concerned with why I wasn’t dating anyone. But now I’m 36, and I still don’t date anyone.
Fereydun, that’s my dad’s name. My grandmother, my dad’s mom, when she was pregnant, she was dating a man from Persia, a Persian gentleman. It wasn’t his child, but he was still very supportive and said, ‘Hey, this is a great name,’ and so it stuck. So that’s what she named him.
Coming through the fire and through the storm of life with a strong man, my fiance Ashanti, whom I’ve been dating for eight months and two wonderful children beside me, I’m just so happy that I have been able to maintain my integrity and get to where I am today with the right energy around me.
I started dating JD Samson from Le Tigre, and suddenly I was listening to more up-tempo music and old dance music, like ESG and Gang of Four, and I thought, ‘Wow. This is fun.’
I dated a lot, but I never really had anyone who was worthy of an anniversary. And most girlfriends never made it to a year, anyway.
To find a prince, you gotta kiss some toads.
I have very little experience with dating websites. My feeling toward dating websites is what most people’s is: If it works, great. If you’re serious and legitimate about it and know what you’re looking for, then from what I hear, it’s definitely effective.
All my freakouts have been pretty private and directed at family pets and/or people I have been dating for too short a time to freak out at in that way.
Just ask for what you want. I requested a six-month break from Facebook to visit my parents; I asked to switch projects. I told my husband it was time to get married after six years of dating!
An important part of dating is communicating. We communicate by sharing our thoughts, ideas, and feelings. We enjoy being with someone when we have an easy time communicating or when we have a lot to talk about.
I want my audience to know me for my work, not because of who I’m dating or what drugs I’m on or what club I went to.
I know some people who’ve gotten tattoos that they probably shouldn’t have, like the name of somebody they were dating, and that never ends well.
Dating is all about the chase. It’s fun!
Workshops and seminars are basically financial speed dating for clueless people.
I’m much more interested in what an actor has to say about something substantial and important than who they’re dating or what clothes they’re wearing or some other asinine, insignificant aspect of their life.
I love a man with a great sense of humor and who is intelligent – a man who has a great smile. He has to make me laugh. I like a man who is very ambitious and driven and who has a good heart and makes me feel safe. I like a man who is very strong and independent and confident – that is very sexy – but at the same time, he’s very kind to people.
I didn’t want to be short. I’ve tried to pretend that being a short guy didn’t matter. I tried to make up for being short by affecting a strut, by adopting the voice of a much bigger man, by spending more money than I made, by tipping double or triple at bars and restaurants, by dating tall, beautiful women.
Relationships in general make people a bit nervous. It’s about trust. Do I trust you enough to go there?
I was dating my first boyfriend in high school for a long time, and we broke up before prom. I hadn’t met anyone else that I really wanted to go with, and my friends have always been amazing. So I went with my friends and got a million photos with them!
First and foremost when you’re doing comedy, you gotta be relevant and applicable to the times that you’re living in. When you try and just do comedy about who is dating who and lifestyle jokes, it gets tiring after a while. It’s hard to be funny in that realm.
I’m very heterosexual, so dating women is something I’m not ashamed of. But my love life is not as exciting as it is reported to be.
You’ll never catch a man if you let him think you are too smart.
When you start dating another country star, the first question is, ‘When are y’all gonna do a duet?’ And what sucks about that is people expect you to do it whether you want to or not.
I think, at the end of the day, age is just a number. It’s like, in real life, I’ve got friends who are dating someone their age or dating someone who’s twice their age, and they’re equally in love.
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. I am a strong believer in kissing being very intimate, and the minute you kiss, the floodgates open for everything else.
So I go to my first book signing, and these two girls came up and gave me a piece of paper: ’10 reasons you should date our dad. He climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. He’s a lawyer.’ He didn’t know what was going on. He didn’t even know me. They called him, and he came down and asked me out that day. Now I’m dating their dad!
I think that we all have to have that rite of passage of dating the tortured artist who seems cooler than we think we are; we aspire to be like them, and we’re excited that somebody is turning us on to new music or a new lifestyle.
I think more dating stuff is scheduling. It’s needing people who understand your work schedule.
I just don’t like when there’s a rumor that says I’m dating someone who is below my standards. But when I got divorced, my ex-wife said I was spending all my time with Lindsay Lohan and Angelina Jolie. I was like, ‘Thank you for the big ups!’
Back when I was dating, the dreaded C word was Commitment. As soon as most men found out I had a child, they ran. If I ever got close enough to say the words, ‘I love you,’ they ran faster.
Kindness is really important to me in finding my own prince – so are patience and a sense of humor. Without those qualities he’s no Prince Charming!
I’m really critical of my posture, it makes a big difference. And I try to suck my belly in. Everyone should do that whether you’re on a red carpet or not. Even if you’re just going out to dinner with your boyfriend you should try and suck it in.
I can’t even explain to you how terrible that feels, that I equate dating a woman with punishment, shame, guilt, disappointment, reproach, reprimand, persecution. It’s a nightmare.
All men that date me have to know that their name may end up in a pop song.
It’s a big responsibility dating me. Because I come with a little bit of baggage, you know?
There were dozens of dating apps when Bumble came on the scene, but they weren’t able to attract critical mass in a young professional group.
While actors are great and awesome, writers literally create new worlds from scratch. What is sexier than that? Personally, I don’t know why every last person out there isn’t dating a writer.
Years later I would hear my father say the divorce had left him dating his children. That still meant picking us up every Sunday for a matinee and, if he had the money, an early dinner somewhere.
When I went off to college in 1997, I didn’t go back and watch ‘Conan.’ I was out partying and dating women.
The United States has a long tradition of preserving the all-American outdoor experience, dating back to the days of President Theodore Roosevelt.
Smart women love smart men more than smart men love smart women.
The rich are different. Their wants are very high maintenance. They’ll pick eye color and hair color, all the way down to what she does for a living, what school she went to. Their list can be extremely long. But at the end of the day, dating is dating, because they’re human beings.
I suppose I was a little bit of what would be called today a nerd. I didn’t have girlfriends, and really I wasn’t a very social boy.
The thing is, in the dating profiles it says ‘spiritual,’ but not with a specific religion. And so I pretty much try to meditate, but I have a very hard time concentrating on things other than me.
I always felt that, for me, as a woman, I always had to wait around. In all other arenas, I was ambitious and a go-getter, but when it came to dating, I wasn’t supposed to go after what I wanted.
I dated dozens of young men, had fun with all, made commitments to none.
I love ‘Threepenny Opera’; I was exposed to it as a little kid because my parents, my mom and my dad, had bonded, when they were dating, over ‘Threepenny Opera’ and introduced it to me, a child, who could barely understand it. But I immediately gravitated even from that early age.
I always play women I would date.
Women need to know that not all guys are going to hurt them the way that the guy did before they started dating me. I know guys I wouldn’t go out with.
I’m definitely old-school when it comes to dating. I’m not into the ‘game’ so much. If I like you, I’ll confront you and be open about it. Then I expect you to come after me.
