Drake knows best: 10 things Drake taught us about love

When it comes to love songs that will have you all wrapped up in your feelings, Drake does it best. Whether we’re head over heels in love or going through a messy break up, it seems that there’s a Drake song for any situation. Here’s some of the best advice when it comes to love from the lyrics of the wordsmith himself.

no. 1 – Never Say Never

“’Cause we said no strings attached.  And I still got tied up in that.” – The Motion

A casual fling can actually turn into a real love thing.  Never limit the potential of your relationships.  All those little annoying things that you hate may be the very things that make you fall head over heels.

no. 2 – Sometimes He’s Just Into You And Not All The Extra  

“Sweat pants, hair tied, chillin’ with no makeup on.  That’s when you’re the prettiest I hope that you don’t take it wrong.” – Best I Ever HaD

While guys love a girl who keeps herself up – they also love a girl who can truly wake up flawless.  He wants to know that once you remove all your makeup, hair, nails and lashes, you’re still the most attractive woman in the world.  The extra is just for enhancing your already beautiful self.

no. 3 – Letting Go Is Sometimes Easier Said Than Done. 

“I can’t get over you.  You left your mark on me” – Hold On We’re Going Home

Sometimes it just doesn’t work!  Unfortunately, people you love and trust the most will hurt you the worst.  I’m not saying it’s impossible to get over your heartache but we are saying it takes time.  The best way to get over one is to move on to the next.

no. 4 – Once A Liar Always A Liar

“Cause that truth hurts, and those lies heal. And you can’t sleep thinking that he lies still. So you cry still, tears all in the pillowcase. Big girls all get a little taste.” – Take Care

Take your signs and run as fast as you can.  Once you realize you’re dealing with a liar…GET OUT!  It’ll save you a lot of sleepless night.

no. 5 – You’re The Real MVP

“I’m just sayin’ you could do better. Tell me have you heard that lately?” – Marvin’s Room

Persistence works.  Sometimes you just have to wait for your bae to realize they are bae!

no. 6 – Deal with Grown Ups & Drop The Losers

“Boys will break your heart. Real men will pick up the pieces.” — Hollywood Life

Know whom you’re dealing with.  If there are signs of immaturity you may need to reevaluate your relationship status.  While we all some moments of pettiness – if it seems to be a consistent thing, it could be time to move on.

no. 7 – Make ‘em Regret Every Second

“Yeah, I’m smiling, but you’re not the reason anymore.” — Club Paradise

Sometimes it feels good to rub your new relationship in your ex’s face to let them know they were the bullet you were glad to dodge.   Chances are, once your ex sees you happy – they try to make a return to your drama free life.

no. 8  – Drunk Texting Is Never A Good Idea

“My ex sends late night text, cause she don’t know how to — let go.” — Lust For Life

If you think about texting your ex late night or while you’re drunk …DON’T.  It’s never a good idea.  You typically become the one who gets all emotional and upset…once again.  Just delete and keep your ex on the block list.

no. 9 – You’re Just A Hot Commodity  

“I do not chase girls, but they run a mile for me” – Big Rings

Sometimes you’re just too freaking cute for your own good.  While some of your friends may coin you as “the player” – you’re honestly just giving yourself plenty of opportunities to test the waters before you settle down.

no. 10 – Sometimes You’re Just Too Awesome To Be Tied Down.  

“I’m doin’ me, I’m doin’ me. I’m living life right now man”  — Over

Drake taught us the joy in being single.  Take your time alone to “do you.”  Have the time of your life without being accountable to someone.  Don’t ever rush in a relationship just for the sake of having a relationship!
