Glee’s Darren Criss: My Ex-Girlfriend Taught Me THIS Dating Lesson!
Just so you know, if Glee star Darren Criss (Blaine) were to ever start calling us on a regular basis — we mean, assuming he actually talked to us in the first place — we would never tell him to stop. And we mean never. But apparently, some people out there are stronger than we are.
Darren was interviewed by Cosmopolitan recently, and he was asked for the best lesson he’d ever learned from an ex-girlfriend. “When I was a junior in college, I'd broken up with a girl, but there were those residual months when I was still calling her all the time and wanting to spend time with her,” Darren reveals.
“Basically, she sat me down and said, ‘Listen, you broke my heart. Accept responsibility for your actions, be a man, and leave me alone, because it's only going to make things worse,’" he continues. “I'll always remember that as a pivotal moment in my life. I hope she's reading this because I love her for it.”
That sounds like some pretty solid break-up advice — even though we can’t imagine ever wanting to push Darren away. But Darren hasn’t had to worry about breaking up with someone in quite a while. The actor recently confirmed that he and musician Mia Swier are dating— and that they’ve been an item since way back before he got his break on Glee.
So we’re hoping for nothing but happiness for Darren and Mia — but Mia can rest assured that Darren will be very mature about giving her plenty of space if they ever part ways.
