Harry Styles has given the most iconic answer to the ever-burning question when it comes to dating. It should be simple, but it feels like it never is: “Should I text him?”
During a concert on his Love On Tour stint, he caught sight of a fan holding a sign reading this question. The first thing he wanted to know was “Is he nice to you?” – a simple, yet underrated thing to ask yourself when you’re considering a new partner in your life.
“In my opinion, if you should [text him], this isn’t even a question,” he continued, going on to elaborate on the toxic element of game playing when it comes to dating.
“If we’re wondering, ‘Should I text him? Should I not text him? I can’t text him too soon. Now we’re thinking about double texting, and that’s a whole different risky business. Now he’s thumbs’ed it, so technically he’s the last one to do something.’ . . . It’s a whole thing.”
“My personal opinion is that if there’s any sort of games, trash, trash, trash, not for you,” he said to tumultuous applause and a huge freak out on social media. Why? Because not only did he dispense sage dating advice, but quoted a line from classic 2004 romantic film The Notebook.
Allie (played by Rachel McAdams)’s mother warns her away from her summer romance Noah (Ryan Gosling), referring him as “trash, trash, trash, not for you”. Who knew that line would come back around, but this time in such a healthy, enlightened way? Cheers, Harry.
Harry is a busy man – alongside his new role as king of our hearts and relationship advice guru – he is also starring alongside Florence Pugh in Olivia Wilde’s upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling, and it looks like it has everything. Sex, scandal and Harry Styles’ gorgeous hair.
The film synopsis (via IndieWire) reads: “A 1950s housewife living with her husband in a utopian experimental community begins to worry that his glamorous company may be hiding disturbing secrets.” Intriguing.
He will play Jack, the husband in question, replacing Shia LeBeouf, who was previously stated to star. We can’t wait for Don’t Worry Darling to make its way to our screens.
