I Bet Amanda Bynes Reads “Cosmo”

Amanda Bynes seems to be one of those girls who obsesses about finding “the one,” and is only happy when she’s in love. Also, one of those girls that doesn’t handle breakups so well. I checked out her Twitter feed the other day, and…

I decided to Google her and see if she’d given any awesome interviews about love or being in love, and discovered that this is not the first time that she’s tweeted obsessively about love/the person she’s dating. The tweets have since been deleted, but E! Online had reported at the time that:

Amanda Bynes is kinda going crazy on her Twitter. She started tweeting Grammy night about this mystery dude she’s unofficially dating (rumors say it’s Kid Cudi). Since then it’s been all ♥s, :) s, love quotes, miss yous, make it official requests, marriage and things like “so turns out i prefer chocolate over vanilla. interesting :) ” . Her Twitter is the perfect example of what not to do at the beginning of a relationship unless you want to seriously freak someone out.

So, yeah, I just get the feeling that Cosmo is written for girls like this. Just sayin’.

ETA: OH MAN. I just found a full breakdown of this, and uh… it does make Amanda look a little obsessive, no? No wonder the tweets were deleted…

    Well, I mean…

    While you don’t go on and on about how much you love your dates, you do tweet obsessively about new ones. And old ones. And ones you’ve just broken up with or stopped seeing.

    I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that. I tweet obsessively about M. And my birds. (I sort of neglect the gerbils, huh? I should get on that.) And my crushes. And people who annoy me.

    Why should Amanda Bynes be any different? Because she’s a celebrity? Bullshit.

    And dude, seriously? Just because some women don’t really care one way or another whether they’re attached to someone or single doesn’t mean all women have to feel that way. Some people can’t handle being alone. Some people just like being in relationships. Who cares, really? It’s their life.

      Not only am I not a celebrity, my dates also don’t follow my Twitter. I’m not like that with the people I’m dating! I would never act all obsessive somewhere where they could see it all. It’s pretty creepy, especially at the beginning of a relationship. I’d be put off if someone I had just started seeing was obsessively talking about this shit where I could see it.

        I would never act all obsessive somewhere where they could see it all.

        And maybe that’s the problem. I mean in general, not with your love life. We’re all more than willing to babble incessantly to our friends and family about the people in our lives, but heaven forbid they hear/see it!

        She’s a grown up child celebrity. I can’t imagine the issues she’s got. But regardless, it’s not fair to expect celebrities to act any differently than we do. And we all have done or still do the things she’s being made fun of for doing in the article you linked here.

          Though, to be fair, I would unfollow anyone that tweeted that obsessively about love/being in love/their partner, just like I hide those people from my Facebook feed. There’s only so much gushing I really want to hear. So I don’t know that I’m criticizing her for something I would enjoy in others.

            And ya know, that’s sad. Again, not just about you, but about people in general. Myself included.

            What is it about us that we can’t stand to see someone talk about how happy they are? Regardless of whether or not we think they’re genuinely that happy.

            Anyway… just giving you food for thought. :)

              Obsession is not happiness. I’ve been there. Unlike happiness, it’s not fun to either experience or watch.

              Well, I for one can’t stand to listen to someone go on and on about how happy they are. If you’re happy, you’re just happy. You don’t go on and on about it constantly if you really are.

    This isn’t really the point of the post, but I *hate* the whole “you attract what you need” bullshit. Yes, I really needed to be abused, so I attracted an abuser! Thanks, that clears things up!

      I hate that too. It’s just more bs about how we presumably control everything that happens to us, even if it’s unconsciously. It’s the same kind of mindset that blames the unemployed for not being able to find jobs in a horrific economy; blames rape victims for being raped; blames sick people for being sick; and blames people with bad life circumstances for being unhappy.

    Oh man, so much contact embarrassment from this.

    If you’re gonna be obsessive, why be coy about it? “A certain guy”? That just makes it even more annoying.

    I’m going to agree with some of what Rayne has said. You do tweet obsessively about guys. Yeah, they don’t see it but other people do and it looks just as weird and creepy to some of them as looking in on Bynes does to you. At least with Bynes, the guy can see that she’s obsessive and seems needy for love and knows what he’s getting in to if he continues seeing her.

    Just because she’s a celebrity doesn’t mean she’s no allowed to be obsessive/compulsive, needy, insecure or anything else. If she’s okay putting herself out there like that for people/guys she’s dating to see a side of her most would hide; who really cares? She’s not hurting anyone.

    A friend turned me on to your blog months ago but this is my first time to leave a comment. Mainly because this is the first time I’ve had something other than “I agree” to say.

    Just to be kind of (really a lot) pedantic, she also apparently skipped the part of pre-1916 world history that would’ve taught her that there was no Nicholas III…

    I had to unfollow Amanda Bynes not long after I began following her because of all. the. fucking. ridiculous. quotes.

    Which is sad, because I’ve always loved Amanda.
