Dakota Fanning Doesn’t Need A Boyfriend To Be Happy

18 year old actress Dakota Fanning chatted to Instyle UK for their latest issue about Twilight among other things. But it was something else that caught our attention at GTHQ.

She talks about her view on being single saying she has only ever had one boyfriend and doesn’t want to be one of those girls who is always with a guy. From a young girl to a mature young lady I am really impressed by her speaking about this. It’s so natural as a young girl with a huge platform as hers to be chased after by many guys, but she is confident and happy just being Dakota.

Fanning reveals she ultimately only wants to be in a relationship with the guy she is going to spend the rest of her life with. Which means she acknowledges her age, and knows that she may have to wait a while. It’s clear that her happiness and self-worth does not come from validation by a male. There is lots to learn from this, chicks!

Of course the subject of fellow Twilight-er Kristin Stewart’s affair with ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ director Rupert Sanders. Fanning was coy about commenting on it, simply stating she wishes the public to give them their space and leave them alone, and we as the public have no right to judge others. Fair enough and well said.

If you are an 18 year old girl I highly suggest taking Dakota’s approach to relationships and boyfriends. Let’s not judge anyone else who makes mistakes because we all do. Let’s not always be looking to men or guys for our worth as women. Let’s be confident and happy with who we are and what we are doing in our individual lives.
