Dating a Celebrity
Many fans dream of it, some joke about it, few think about what else comes with dating a celebrity.
“He/she is mine!”, “I am going to marry her/him”, “Don’t he/she ever dare to date (anyone besides me)”. It seems like quite a number of people don’t put much thought in what it actually is like to date a celebrity. First of all: if you don’t keep the relationship secret there are fans (and other people) and their reactions towards it. Some may congratulate the couple, some may not be interested in it at all and some may dislike it. As for the first two cases, there is no problem with that: they are rather easy to handle (beside the fact that they might get too curious). For the third case: They can be simply annoying and hurt the lovers with their mean comments, sending them hateful mail, stalking or even attacking the involved people.
If they don’t reveal it, they got the keep it a secret, which means: no dating in public space, not talking too much about being in a relationship, not carrying (obvious) photos around, etc. Simply put: Leaving as little trace as possible. Some celebrities do go on dates in public space using a variety of camouflage, such as disguise, cross-dressing, taking other people with them, and impersonating a different relationship (celebrity and manager/stylist/translator/relative…).Or meeting each other “by chance” (as in: sitting next to each other in a cinema). Especially if the person dating the celebrity is a “commoner” It might be difficult for them to decide who to talk to about it, since every time they talk about it they risk a scandal (since someone might eardrop or the insider proofs himself not trustable later on). The other part of the relationship actually has much responsibility to not put the celebrity’s image or even job at any risk. Fighting in public? They shouldn’t even think about it, if they don’t want to read it in the next day’s papers (with probably an exaggerating headline).
If the partner is a celebrity as well, things turn easier inasmuch as the other person already knows how to handle it. They can talk to their companies/labels and ask them for help (as in setting up better opportunities to meet each others). That is if the label approves of the relationship. Things turn much more difficult if they disapprove, the pressure than will be high and perhaps will even make you give up the relationship (or your carrier) as the company may use the contract as a thread in the worst case, themed: “Either you stay or you leave.” Normally there is a way to compromise though.
Celebrities do have pretty much and irregular schedule. One person may end up waiting all day for nothing, more than once, because a schedule popped up or got delayed. Also: just like some fans are jealous, the person dating the star might get jealous at fans or coworker as well. Having a kiss-scene? They better tell their partner beforehand and discuss about it. It takes a lot of tolerance, patience and understanding to date a celebrity. Also: Both parties will get hurt if one of them is dating the other for a different reason then really loving/liking him/her. But that’s an of course, I guess.
If the person you are a fan of announces that he/she is dating or going to marry please give the couple your best support.
