I’ve now been dating my first boyfriend for five years, so at least in my case, being kind of selective worked out pretty well.
Now, if only I could be Dakota’s style twin, I think my life would be complete.
I just didn’t want to settle for guys who didn’t have those qualities.
Now, I don’t think when you start dating someone that automatically means you are a couple that must stay together forever. When my current BF first asked me out in college, it’s not like I was like, “Yes! Now let’s make a marriage plan and a timeline of our whole future!
, Fanning revealed that she isn’t a big fan of going out on dates and believes the process of dating is “horrific.” “We have to sit there and ask these questions and pretend to eat a meal, and it just feels so stiff,” said Fanning The actress has her own idea of how dating should be.
“The way I prefer to meet someone is through a friend [because that means the person] is most likely not a freak,” Fanning shared.
I had so much going on in my life, so if I was going to be able to give a relationship the attention it deserved, I wanted it to be a strong investment, not something that I later regretted doing.
There were just certain things I knew I would want in a boyfriend that I felt would make for a more meaningful and longer-lasting relationship.
“I’ve always thought that’s what it’s supposed to be like, and if it’s not, then I don’t want to waste my time on it,” Dakota told . My parents don’t really have that sort of adorable story, so in my case, I don’t think it was so much the influence of others around me as it was just a product of my personality. I had a lot of crushes and even went on a couple dates here and there, but honestly, it was a pretty boy-free zone.
“Even when I was 14, I was like, ‘I’m not gonna marry this person. I like being super in control and always having a plan. It wasn’t that I didn’t a boyfriend, but I watched people in high school be BF/GF for like a couple weeks or maybe a couple months, and for me, that didn’t seem like something that fit in my plan.
