By all accounts – Ariana Grande, Margaret Qualley and Kaia Gerber – Pete Davidson’s dating history appears to be a little unsteady and erratic at best. So when the SNL star appeared on The Breakfast Club this week with a little (or a lot) of dating advice I was inclined to fast forward. But in response to his most recent relationship with Phoebe Dynevor, the man had a point.
“I am just very, very honest,” Davidson said. “I think what a lot of people do is they try to put on—not even their best self—but almost a version of themself that they would like to be. And eventually, that will unravel, you know? So, I just, off the top, I’m like, ‘Hey, I’m nuts. Here’s all my issues. Here’s what I do. Here’s the therapists. This is what happens.’ And that can either be a lot for someone…or they could be like, ‘Cool, that was really refreshingly honest.’ Or, sometimes it can be a little intense and weird and people can’t handle that stuff.”
In addition, Davidson says he doesn’t like playing games. For example, the classic wait time between text replies and reiterated that communication is key to a successful relationship. In the same vein, the Saturday Night Live regular noted that couples shouldn’t have to talk all the time
“No, if I’m into you, I’m really into you,” he added. “It just creates this whole anxiety and a lot of stress, and there’s enough of that going on. So, I think, like, that part of the relationship, it should be so easy. It should just be like, ‘Hey, there’s something wrong today.’ ‘Hey, I’m really happy today.’ Communication’s really key.'”
“If you trust and love the person, they’re doing their thing whatever, I think as long as you guys keep in touch or can understand each other, I think you’ll be fine,” he said. “That would be my advice.”
Wise words, Davidson.
Rumors of his romance with the Bridgerton star were first reported in late March. By early April a source for Page Six revealed that while yes, they’re dating, it wasn’t “that serious.” What will become of this Hollywood fling? Stay tuned.
