"I hate being on a date where both people are working too hard to come up with stuff to say. You know it's working when you can just chill--listen to music, watch a movie or whatever--without feeling like you have to force the conversation. It should just be natural."

It's all the little things you've got to pick up on." (<a href="http://www.seventeen.com/love/cody-simpson-dating-advice" target="_hplink">Seventeen</a>)
On dating losers: "[Afterwards I'm] like, "What was I thinking?" But that's what you do when you're just dating and you're figuring it all out.

"I'm shy, so I like when she comes up and says "Hey, how are you doing?" That lets me know she wants to talk. The scariest thing is when you look at a woman and think of a million reasons why she wouldn't want to."
