14 Celebrity Love, Dating, And Relationship Analogies

Kelly Clarkson is a smartie when it comes to matters of the heart. I mean, she did sing “Since U Been Gone.” But now she has more wisdom to pass on to us. “[Dating is] like an ‘American Idol‘ audition,” she said in a recent interview. “The worst ones are the most confident … And the same thing goes for my dating life. The worst guys are the most confident with me.” Everyone loves an unexpected analogy, right? Kelly’s words have inspired me to round up other celebrities who’ve made great analogies about love, dating, and relationships. Tell us your favorite in the comments section.

Picture this. You’re surrounded by demons in the mist of an enchanted forest. The Pirate King Sirron has overtaken the portal to Hell and has, through dark magic, bent Demogorgon the Demon Prince to his will. The full force of the Underworld is against you. You, a strong bull-man Paladin Knight, accompanied by a Dwarf, a Cleric, an Elf and a Sorcerer (respectively named Ryan, Phil, George and Steve). This, my friends, is Dungeons & Dragons.

Perhaps this is not where you’d expect to find a bright, bubbly, blonde, violently-sexy and overly-confident comedian. But a few months back, I found myself in this very scenario, sitting in a room full of nerds. One of three girls in the whole place—and the only one that looked like she’d been out of her apartment in the past three months—I realized that, by default, I was an absolute babe. Whoa, I thought to myself. I am the Megan Fox of Dungeons & Dragons right now.

Getting Dumped Is Expensive, New Study Says

Getting Dumped Is Expensive

Getting dumped costs a woman more than her dignity, a new study revealed. Of the 2,000 recent dumpees polled, more than half admitted to managing their misery post-breakup by treating themselves to new ‘dos, wardrobes, makeup, gym memberships, and pampering procedures like spray tans or mani/pedis. “Being dumped, whether it was on the cards or not, will make even the toughest woman feel awful … This research shows that women start to question what went wrong with the relationship, and feel self-conscious about their looks,” said the head researcher. Imagine that, consuming to make ourselves feel better. I know nothing about it.

Dear Wendy: “Did I MOA Too Soon?”

For the past couple of months, I have been flirting with a co-worker who was very shy at first, but took an interest in my hobbies, complimented me every day, gave me pet names, and generally seemed very interested. After a month and a half, he finally asked me for my number and I kind of “helped him along” by asking when he could hang out. I was so excited about our date, but he canceled last minute for a legitimate reason and asked if we could reschedule. Even though he stopped by my office to flirt and chat the next week, he never rescheduled but asked what I was doing that weekend and seemed upset and walked away when I said that I was spending time with a male friend. When I told him my friend was gay, he perked up and kept the conversation going, and I told him to call me if he wanted to hang out and he said he would.

Well, he never called or texted to say that he wouldn’t be available, but first thing Monday morning he asks if I was feeling better (I had been sick the week before), told me I looked nice, and apologized for not calling because he (being the nice guy) ended up helping a friend move. I gave him the cold shoulder. I am so confused about the inconsistency between his flirtatious interest and his non-committal attitude toward getting to know me more that I deleted his number, defriended him on Facebook, and haven’t been speaking to him. He looks very sad when I see him, but I feel like I may have read him wrong this whole time and am afraid that he’s only been nice because he doesn’t know how to say no to me. Did I give up too soon or should I just MOA? — Office Crush(ed)
