Justin Bieber stole my heart and I don’t want it back

How does one cope with the fact that they will never be with their celebrity crush? Cause I’m definitely struggling with the fact that my celebrity crush and I have no future together.

I wish there was a clean-cut answer to this question, but sadly that’s not the case. It’s all fun and games until you have a dream that you’re in a serious relationship with your celebrity crush only to wake up to the harsh reality that no, Justin Bieber isn’t your boyfriend, and no, he didn’t propose to you. This is all hypothetical, of course. So to answer the question of how to cope with the fact that the love of your life doesn’t love you back, it’ll take a few steps and some time.

First things first, stop creeping them on all their social media – you are fueling the fire, my friend. Following Twitter/Instagram accounts that are literally all overly attractive pictures of them is not doing you any good. Out of sight, out of mind. However, there’s more to it than just controlling your wondering eye, you also need to quit reading every article that relates to them. No Facebook, please quit showing me the related articles because now I’m all the way back in 2012 reading about that one time Justin said something remotely newsworthy. Control is key in the fight of moving on. Given it’s the hardest to obtain, but once you master some self control, that light at the end of the tunnel of love is in sight.

Next, let’s say your celebrity crush is a musician – say, Justin Bieber (again, totally hypothetical), listening to his music all the time isn’t going to help your situation in the slightest. Hearing him profess his love in music form to someone other than you is not good for the heart or the soul. No matter how heavenly that voice of his is, you need to take a hiatus from it for a while otherwise you’re just digging that hole deeper and deeper.

All in all, if none of this works, just embrace it. Embrace your love for your celebrity crush. Feel like tweeting them 36 times in 5 minutes? Do what you need to do. Send them an abundance of snapchats professing your love? No one is stopping you. Creep them on Facebook until the crack of dawn? I won’t judge you. Sometimes you win, sometimes you create a Pinterest board of your wedding with them lose. So in the end, I’m not 100% sure there’s a cure for the heartbreak over a celebrity crush, but hey, if you find one, let me know.
