Seven celebs whose dating game we admire
Want to up your dating game? Many celebs’ love lives leave a lot to be desired, but we can take some inspiration from this little lot, who we think are rocking it.
If there’s anyone making a career out of heartbreak it’s this crooner. His debut album ‘In The Lonely Hour’ was famously written about his unrequited love for an unnamed man and with his follow up album he’s continued his theme of sad songs about breakups and heartbreak. Thankfully, in real life, his love life has been a bit more cheerful of late. He dated actor Brandon Flynn for 9 months, with the pair recently going their separate ways due to their busy schedules. An outspoken supporter of LGBTQ rights, Sam said of the relationship: “seeing gay relationships [in a public way] is important and refreshing. You don’t see it loads.” Yaaasss!
Taylor has documented her string of high profile relationships with some of the world’s most famous men, (including Calvin Harris, Jake Gyllenhaal and Harry Styles) in her music. Songs like ‘We Are Never Getting Back Together’, (reportedly about Gyllenhaal), and ‘Dear John’ about John Mayer show that Taylor is not afraid to wear her heart on her sleeve. But she has decided to keep things decidedly under wraps with her latest flame, British actor Joe Alwyn. They’re rarely seen out together in public and both remain hush-hush about it in interviews. Good on her we say!
Although she’s not yet a household name, Strictly fans will know all about Rebecca Humphries’ love life. She recently publicly dumped her boyfriend, comedian Seann Walsh, after he was seen passionately kissing his Strictly dance partner Katya Jones. But not only that, Rebecca went a step further, accusing Walsh of aggressive and controlling behaviour during their relationship. Her strength in walking away and in calling out his alleged behaviour will doubtless help many other women who feel trapped in abusive relationships and is an important step in the ongoing #Metoo movement. Here at Hey Saturday we love strong women who stand up for themselves. Go Rebecca!
We’re a huge fan of Mindy. She once famously explained to Ellen that she struggles with one night stands “because I have my medications that I have to take at night! I have to be at my house and do my flossing. I have all that stuff. And you didn’t want to know that, but…” Dayum, a girl after our own heart. She is the epitome of how to rock singledom. While she’s not afraid to admit that she’d love to get married and have kids, she’s more than happy to keep her standards high and wait for that right connection to come along. Mindy will never settle for anything but living her best life and nor should you.
Liz Hurley is one of the increasing number of older women who don’t see divorce as any barrier to enjoying both relationships and the single life. There’s no longer as much stigma attached to being divorced and at Hey Saturday we often help older women to rediscover their dating mojo after the end of a relationship and get out there to enjoy themselves and their dating. At 53, Liz Hurley looks amazing and is living life to the full. Plus we love that she’s still good friends with her exes, Hugh Grant, Arun Nayar and Shane Warne. Liz Hurley proves you can be a mum, have a successful career and still get all you want out of your dating.
We admire the fact that Harry is not one to kiss and tell. In fact he has never openly confirmed his involvement with any of the girls with whom he has been linked (with the exception of Taylor Swift). We also admire the fact that Harry rocks a strong image – important for successful dating. Whether sporting long or short locks, casual or smart wear, Harry has a strong sense of style for a young guy and isn’t afraid to change it up.
We still have relatively few openly LGBTQ women in public life, (let alone uber cool, hot and stylish ones), so bisexual model Cara Delevigne is a breath of a fresh air and a great role model for young gay and bi girls. She’s dated Jake Bugg, Harry Styles, Michelle Rodriguez, St Vincent, and if rumours are to be believed her latest squeeze is actor and model Ashley Benson. Plus we love that Cara stole all the headlines recently at Princess Eugenie’s wedding when she rocked up looking fantastic in top hat and tails. Not many people can pull off a black outfit at a wedding, but Cara smashed it.
