If there’s one person I trust to tell all when it comes to romance, it’s Matthew McConaughey. Well, it’s not, actually, but let’s go with it for the sake of this story. Matthew married his long time girlfriend Camila Alves last summer after six years of poppin’ out some kids and walking topless on the beach together, and the relationship is still going strong! That might not seem like a big deal, but it’s Hollywood, we’re talking about.
Matthew opened up about the secrets to a lasting love in a new interview with CNN:
“I think there’s a way that you make [love] work, and I think a lot of people fail at it because they continually are expecting maybe something the other person can’t even give you.
“It’s too much to put that pressure on the other person. I think I’ve seen a lot of relationships fail because each person had the other on such a pedestal that the person couldn’t live up to it, and that sort of detonated the relationship.”
That seems like pretty sound advice, Matthew. Be chill, understand that your partner is human and get fulfillment from other places, too. Kewl beans.
Listen, guys – it’s Thursday and it’s a slow ass news day yet again. When someone does something good, you’ll get to stop reading filler stories like this.
