    I Love Camila Cabello's Instagram About What It's Like Dating Shawn Mendes

    "It’s not as simple as it looks in pictures sometimes."

    As you probably know from the pap pics, steamy performances, and social media, singers Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are dating.

    On Saturday, Camila took to Instagram to write a tribute to Shawn and the experience of being in love. I gotta say, it's a pretty beautiful post.

    "I’ve learned a lot about love with this guy," Camila began the post. "It’s not just the happy blissful moments you see in pictures and videos."

    "When you’re in a relationship with someone, it feels like they are this mirror reflecting yourself back to you. I constantly have to confront my fears, my anxieties, my insecurities, my patterns of thinking, my beliefs about life and about myself."

    "It’s not as simple as it looks in pictures sometimes. Sometimes, it’s messy and uncomfortable and ugly lol."

    "But, there’s nothing like the pull, the force that is love — to be the light in the darkness, to be the gravitational pull that gives you the relentless strength to be braver, wiser, and better than you were yesterday."

    "It’s so instinctive for us to love, even if our minds try to protect us from it sometimes. But, our nature as humans is to love. And to be in love means to choose that person over and over again, to go through the messy stuff with. And that’s way more beautiful and raw and real than perfection."

    "I’m all for being vulnerable on social media because I think only the neatness and perfection of life is shown on here, and that can make us all feel extra lonely and weird!"

    "So, raise your glass to the messiness and weirdness of being human and the miracle. And the easiness. And the instinct. And the relentless force that is love."

    Aw, that was so cute, Camila. Thank you for sharing. Rooting for you two!
