Ed Sheeran is one of our favorite redheads. He doesn’t only write amazing love songs – he gives the best love advice too. Before embarking on his worldwide arena tour, Ed took a break to share his top tips to finding a perfect match.
Ed Sheeran on how love is like cheesecake:
“Sometimes I wish I could go back and give my 17-year-old self love advice. I’d tell myself: ‘Ease into things slowly.’ If you have a piece of cheesecake, you don’t want to scarf it all down at once; you want to enjoy it. The same goes for love – don’t rush. Take time to figure out what you need in a relationship.”
It’s okay to be a little freaked out!
“I call this scared love. It sounds bad, but it’s not. I think we all get into situations where we’re terrified about letting ourselves fall in love because we don’t want to get hurt. But when you’re already friends and trust that person, that nervous feeling in the pit of your stomach is healthy. It means that there is something there – a deeper connection – that might be worth it. You just have to let yourself make the fall.”
Sheeran on the importance of being yourself:
“Quirks might seem weird when you’re young, but they make you stand out when you’re older and that’s an important thing.”
