Pete Davidson Explained Why So Many People Want To Date Him, And Honestly, I Get It Now

Maybe it's not (just) BDE.

Pete Davidson loves to date. This much has been clear throughout 2018 and 2019, during which the SNL comedian and actor was in relationships with Cazzie David, Ariana Grande, Kate Beckinsale, Margaret Qualley, and, if the rumors are to be believed, currently Kaia Gerber.

If you've searched Pete Davidson's name on Twitter over the past year, you'll find a lot of people sincerely wondering, "Just what is it about this guy?"

It seems dating Pete Davidson is the new jury duty, eventually we're all going to have to do it.

And, is he ever single?

If you go back even more on Twitter, there is one popular theory about why Pete is such a magnet for his fellow celebrity peers: BDE aka Big Dick Energy.

Pete, however, has his own explanation, which he recently offered Paper Magazine.

When asked what it's like to be in a relationship with him, Pete said, "My love language, when I'm in a relationship, is I treat the person I'm with like a princess."

Kindness is his ultimate strategy.

I try and go as above and beyond as possible, because that's what you're supposed to do? If you're in a relationship with someone, you're just supposed to make that person feel as special as possible.

But, according to Pete, this has backfired too.

But sometimes when you put so much on someone, it overwhelms them, and then they don't know if they could come close to that. Or if they can keep up with it. So it's very off-putting to some. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't, and then it sometimes makes me feel bad about myself because I'm like, "I did all this stuff and..." But you can't do that. I have learned that anything you do, it just has to be 'cause you wanna do it.

Consider the mystery of Pete Davidson to be solved (?).
