You guys, how many times have I talked about how great a boyfriend Justin Bieber is? A lot, right? Like, so much that I could understand if you’ve ever been a little creeped out by it. But listen, this is a dude who takes his girlfriend to romantic private screenings of Titanic and who once bought his girlfriend every flower in a flower shop. I think I’m allowed to swoon a little. Besides, he’s legal now, get off my back.
But for as much as I’ve talked about Justin being a great boyfriend, I don’t think we’ve ever gotten to hear Justin himself talk about being a great boyfriend. And that’s something we’ve been missing, right?
“I’m loving and patient and kind and gentle,” Justin Bieber tells Radio Disney’s Celebrity Take with Jake (running from April 9 to April 13) of his boyfriend skills.
Not that anyone was wondering. When it comes to relationships, Bieber, 18, whose romance with Gomez, 19, was revealed when they were caught kissing last January, says “it’s just about being honest with one another.”
“You just have to be honest, that’s the first thing, because if you’re not honest, then the relationship is just not a good relationship,” explains Bieber, whose latest single, “Boyfriend” features lyrics, such as, “If I was your boyfriend, I’d never let you go” and “Chillin’ by the fire while we eatin’ fondue/I don’t know about me but I know about you.”
Of his relationship motto, he adds: “At the end of the day, your girl would appreciate you being honest more than lying to her and vice versa.”
That modesty! That wisdom! Honestly, who wouldn’t want to be in a relationship with a man who understands that “your girl would appreciate you being honest more than lying to her,” right? I can’t tell you how many guys I’ve dated who were the exact opposite! They’d be like “no, babe, you don’t understand! I wasn’t cheating, that was my sister!” And then I’d be like “why are you even lying about this, you don’t have a sister and even if you did, I don’t think you’d be grabbing her ass in the Olive Garden.” And then he’d throw his hands up in frustration and go “I THOUGHT THIS WAS WHAT YOU WANTED.”* Justin Bieber would never do that to me.
Just in case you didn’t get enough love advice from relationship expert Justin Bieber, I have one more great tidbit for you:
“To be a great boyfriend you just have to have patience and…you’re always wrong when it comes to girls, you’re always wrong, so just say sorry when things are rough.”
Ugh, so true. There has never been a dude in the history of dudes that has ever had a correct thought, and I’m so glad that one of them is finally acknowledging that. Personally, I’ve got my man apologizing on a schedule so that every two hours I get a “sorry,” just in case I happen to be upset with anything going on. It works great!
Keep this excellent advice coming, Justin!
