Dating is never easy. It’s (almost) always awkward, nerve-wracking, and just plain uncomfortable!

But regardless of whether you’ve had your heart broken, encountered one too many bad boys, or you’re over Bumble, you can always look to improve your dating game and get back into it. Lucky for you, we scoured the web for some solid dating advice from some of our fave celebs. After all, who better to give advice than celebs themselves? They’ve dated plenty of other stars while facing all sorts of obstacles.

So take a break from swiping right and read through these helpful tips:

Be Friends First
“We have been together since I was 20 years old. We took our time and developed an unbreakable friendship before we got married.” – Beyoncé

Live in the Moment
“If I could relive the first three months of courtship over and over for the rest of my life, I would. Especially in winter, who doesn’t like a nice heavy seven-course meal with lots of alcohol, then making out when you’re a little tipsy and taking a cab home to fall asleep in the clothes you wore on the date? Wait. Actually that was, like, my whole 20s. And it was very fun.” – Mindy Kaling

Be Independent of Each Other
“When we’re busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other. Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesn’t text back or call. Life [is] super busy. Obviously you know what they’re doing, and you trust them.” – Jennifer Lawrence

Challenge One Another
“Don’t be afraid to push him. Relationships are funny. You have to constantly fall in love and challenge each other.” – Justin Timberlake

Stay True to Yourself
“Find out who you are and be that person. That’s what your soul was put on this earth to be. Find that truth, live that truth, and everything else will come.” – Ellen DeGeneres

You’ll Outgrow the Bad Boy Phase
“I think when I turned 30 [is when I started to get wise about bad boys]. I was like, this is not good for anybody. It’s fun at first though!” – Amy Schumer

Just Be Nice
“Don’t be an a—hole. That’s my [relationship] advice. Don’t be mean. Don’t take s—t. Don’t settle.” – Kristen Stewart

Embrace Third Wheeling
“There is no shame in being a third wheel. Don’t think of it as being the only single person in a group. Instead, think of it as having multiple wingmen (or women).” – Lauren Conrad

Make Sure There’s Chemistry
“If you kiss on the first date and it’s not right, then there will be no second date. The minute you kiss, the floodgates open for everything else.” – Jennifer Lopez

Always Be on Time
“If you are going on a first date just be early first of all. Just don’t be late, it’s tardy and nobody likes tardy people.” – Harry Styles
