Anyone who came of age listening to a cassette tape of "Oops, I Did It Again" on their boom box (remember boom boxes?) wants the best for Britney Spears, who's been through a lot in her 31 years... most of it in the spotlight. Now, after mental health concerns, financial troubles, and romantic blowups, it looks like she's finally found someone to just stand still with for a hot second: David Lucado, a normal guy who exists outside of showbiz (which is totally good for her, IMHO).
The two were spotted for the first time on Valentine's Day, and Life & Style reports that Britney has already said "I love you" to David. An unnamed friend of Brit-Brit's confirms: "Everyone knows Britney falls in love very fast."
Remember how quickly high school couples said "I love you?". Now that we're grown-ups, there's a significant amount of adult meaning attached to those three words that came so easily to that kid in your AP Gov class who you made out at the movies with for a week. There are some basic ground rules. You're not supposed to say it on the first few dates. You're not supposed to say it while drunk. You're not supposed to say it during sex (although, personally, I disagree), and you're not supposed to say it if it's not true. (Unfortunately, 43 percent of women don't follow this one.) But that's about it. Everything else is fair game.
Britney and David have only been dating a month, but maybe it does happen just that quickly. Multiple studies have confirmed that the sensation of love (which, in this instance, is compared to being high on cocaine) can be achieved in under a fifth of a second, and three times as many men than women are likely to drop the L bomb first.
However, both of these conclusions can be debunked or dispelled with just a little bit of context. For instance, the stomach-butterfly contact high described in the first study sounds more like infatuation than actual romantic love. As for the reason that men are more likely to say "I love you" first? I'm willing to bet that women are simply more afraid to be the first to say it, so they wait.
lol who has done it, ONTD?
