Here are the top 5 love lessons we learned from our favorite celebrities this year. Who knew Hollywood was so good at giving relationship advice?!
1. If you screw up, fess up
When Kristen Stewart was caught cheating on Robert Pattinson earlier this year, she didn’t deny it or try to make excuses. Instead, she issued one of the most honest-seeming public apologies ever. Did it work? Yes! She and R-Patz are back on and going strong!
2. You really can bounce back from heart break
Katy Perry started off 2012 with a big old divorce on her plate, but did that stop her from rocking this year super hard? No way! She bounced back and did her thing (even if she did end up dating John Mayer . . . blech!).
3. You really shouldn’t kiss and tell
We think Taylor Swift has been given some solid relationship advice over the years, but decided to ignore it in favor of making a ton of money with her overly confessional heartbreak songs. Seriously, kissing and telling the way she does is a huge turnoff to a lot of people (guys and girls!) and it could really mess up your romantic prospects.
4. Love and work can coexist
Contrary to all the relationship advice out there, on-the-job romance can work out! Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are still going strong, and so is their show! Presto! Go ahead and ask out that cute guy at work!
5. Listen to your BFF’s relationship advice
Even when you don’t agree with her (we doubt Selena Gomez is loving Taylor Swift ragging on the Biebz), let her say what she thinks about your relationship. Chances are, she can see a lot more from the outside than you can from the inside, and she definitely has your best interests in mind!
