Best Quotes:

I weirdly do consider myself an optimist about love.

Do It Under the Influence Yourself! That's what we're shooting for! Get drunk and make your dreams come true.

The whole idea of love is scary - so is being with someone for the rest of your life and being happy with them for the rest of your life. There's lots of research to suggest that, actually, love's not really that simple.
