In this day and age, I ask anyone I date right away: ‘Are you married? Are you in a relationship with anyone?

My grandmother always used to wear this English perfume called Tuberose and then she died and then I dated this girl who wore the same thing.

Because bisexual people almost have a foot in the gay and the straight world, their friends can misunderstand them too. Like if a bisexual man starts dating another man, people are like ‘Ah, he’s gay,’ but you know, bisexual people remain bisexual, and their attractions can change and flux over time.
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.

The fact that Manti Te’o thought for a long time that he was dating, like, a fake girl and then that she died and did the tribute and the girl never existed. I mean inherently that’s funny.
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.’
It’s usually drawing on personal experience. I don’t think I could dig deep enough trying to get into somebody else’s life. Like ‘Far From Me’ – I wrote it about this waitress that I was dating when I was fifteen or so, and she broke up with me.

I guess there are all these women with a big secret – they’re hiding men they are ashamed of. They come up to me and say: ‘I’ve been dating this guy for six months in secret but none of my friends know. I can’t give him up even though he’s embarrassing.’
Everybody’s got baggage, and not just the classic, ‘Oh I have so much baggage,’ but everyone comes with so much context, and you’re not just dating a person: you’re dating all their context, too. Part of relationships is negotiating each other’s context.
If you’re in the music to move to Hollywood and be in ‘People’ magazine dating an actress or dating some Hollywood celebrity, are you into it for that side of it? Are you in it to be a millionaire? Or are you in it because you love it and you like playing music and you like going on tour?

I have used dating apps a couple of times in the past and met people, but it is a difficult thing because you’re meeting someone who you really don’t know and you have no link to.

Anyone who has to have the word ‘charming’ in their name probably isn’t – just take a look at any dating site where men use ‘prince charming’ in their description.

In the dating game, the world is difficult because people don’t communicate, or they communicate, but then their actions speak louder than words.

During my initial days of modeling, I started dating men much older than my age who would pamper me silly with expensive gifts.
It’s lonely. That’s why, in many ways, the CIA is the world’s biggest dating agency, I think. I imagine it’s much like two actors that get married because they understand that universe. You know, I’m pretty sure the agency’s divorce rate is rather high.
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.

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 feel like I am a real artist and I want to be able to feel what I am singing about. So when I sing, ‘Leave (Get Out),’ I have been through that. I think it is just a new generation, whether people are ready for it or not. Teenagers are dating.
In my experience with women that I’ve dated and my wife now, is you have to know what they care about. And even if you aren’t a huge fan of it, you still have to have interest in it and it has to be genuine because women do it for men all the time.
I’m the one who’s dating the craft-service guy instead of the producer. Plus, if a producer is going to date a hot young thing, I’m probably not the first person on their list – the weird, quirky, funny girl.
Dating a creative pushes me to think outside the box.
I’ve been dating since I was 15 years old, and I just don’t seem to do it well.
