Hooboy. I think 2012 has been a landmark year in terms of celebrity relationships, breakups, makeups, and comebacks. Although I’m sure none of our favorite stars exactly loved having their love lives splashed all over the tabloids, we definitely learned some super valuable relationship advice from their experiences.

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!

    Taylor does so mention names in her songs. If she doesn’t, she leaves hints in the lyrics. I love her, but she does do it. At least in Red she hasn’t done it, which is good.

    She doesn’t hint who the songs are about. The media pries into her life and speculates about it. She has never talked about her personal life. She avoids it in every single interview. She could go around and admit it on all the talk shows, but never has. How can you overdo songwriting about love? You either do or don’t and every song writer does. It’s no secret that she will write about you if you date her. Any guy would know it when starting a relationship with her.

  • Jordyn

    All songwriters do write about their love life, but Taylor overdoes it. If I was a guy she was dating and she wrote about are breakup and the details I’d be pretty pissed. She hints at who the song is about.

    Every article about love on this website bashes Taylor Swift. Every songwriter writes all about their love life. She is respectful and keeps the person’s identity private. She has never told the public who a song is about, out of respect for the guy. The purpose of the confessional songwriting is to help others who are going through the same thing. Anytime you have a problem or something great happen with love, you have a song to listen to and Taylor to thank for it.
