Celebs are experts when it comes to dating. From one-night stands and whirlwind romances to healthy marriages and life-long commitments, even the best of us sometimes look at their lives to get some tips to make it work.

And to the celebs' credit, they aren't short of advices and some of them are actually gems. Maybe it's a lifetime living in the spotlight and being in touch with millions but they sure can help a lot of us avoid the common traps of pitfalls when it comes to dating.

Here are 17 dating tips from Hollywood's best to get us through:

1. Emma Watson on the importance of gender equality

“I actually took a man out for dinner. And I chose the restaurant and I offered to pay and it was really awkward and uncomfortable…but the cool thing about it was we were both willing to have the conversation about why it was awkward or why it was uncomfortable. We were able to have this dialogue," The Harry Potter actress told during a Facebook Q&A session of HeForShe.

2. Beyonce on being friends first

“We have been together since I was 20 years old. We took our time and developed an unbreakable friendship before we got married," Queen Bey told Glamour.

3. Neil Patrick Harris advices to work on a relationship

“Honeymoon phases end. They just do. We’re animals, and animals aren’t inclined to copulate with just each other for the rest of their lives. So here’s a challenge: How do you keep redefining your relationship? I think you have to find new elements that turn you on, and not only sexually. Having kids was one of those great moments for me. Watching David [Burtka] become another level of person, mastering this other domain, made me look at him with a whole other set of appreciative eyes. That sort of made me re-fall in love with him," the Oscar host told Glamour.

4. Mindy Kaling on loving each moment

“If I could relive the first three months of courtship over and over for the rest of my life, I would. Especially in winter, who doesn’t like a nice heavy seven-course meal with lots of alcohol, then making out when you’re a little tipsy and taking a cab home to fall asleep in the clothes you wore on the date? Wait. Actually that was, like, my whole 20s. And it was very fun," she said to Good Housekeeping.

5. Ellen Degeneres asks people to be true to oneself

“Find out who you are and be that person. That’s what your soul was put on this earth to be. Find that truth, live that truth, and everything else will come," she told Glamour.

6. George Clooney on the importance of having a good sense of humour

“Everybody says this, but I’d bet sense of humor is no. 1 for me. It’s certainly what’s most attractive and the first thing you notice about someone. It’s not the first thing you notice at 21, but it’s the first thing you notice now," the Ocean's Eleven star told People mag.

7. Aaron Paul stresses on open communication

“People get in fights because they don’t communicate, because you don’t want to hurt the other person. If you do want to hurt the other person, then shame on you – you’re an asshole. My wife and I do not argue. We communicate. We talk. But we’ve never fought in our entire relationship," the Breaking Bad actor told Elle.

8. Laverne Cox asks to keep a cool head

“I’m seeing someone but we haven’t defined what we’re doing. We’re just enjoying each other’s company and having a very good time and laughing together and supporting each other," she told E!

9. Chris Pratt says it to keep it genuine

“The truth is that any amount of trickery or wearing cool shirts with rad designs or using pick-up lines, or any of this bullshit like trying to neg girls, isn’t going to matter. It won’t pay off when she realizes that you’re full of shit," he told GQ.

10. Jennifer Lawrence on how to counter those busy schedules

“When we’re busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other. Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesn’t text back or call. Life’s super-busy. Obviously you know what they’re doing, and you trust them," she told Marie Claire.

11. Channing Tatum says honesty is sacrosanct

“Jenna [Dewan] and I have a trick we use to check in with each other. We say, ‘On a scale of one to 10, how much do you love me right now?’ It’s not as romantic as you think. Sometimes it’s like, ‘I love you at a six right now. I have an issue, and you asked. So now I’m going to tell you…,'" the Magic Mike star told Elle.

12. Nicki Minaj on staying independent

“Don’t chase any man. Put your school first," she told Marie Claire.

13. Lena Dunham asks to be totally supportive

“I think women are conditioned to stand by their man and watch them make it to the top, but most men never believe the person they get into a relationship with is going to rise any higher than she was when they met. It takes a very special, evolved person to be able to deal with change within a relationship," she told Glamour.

14. Meryl Streep on discussing all issues

“You have to talk about all the issues that arise, even the smallest things. You have to listen to your partner’s problems, suggestions and advice, and accept that you’re not always right. Conversation is the key to a successful marriage," she said to New Zealand Woman's Weekly.

15. Kim Kardashian on maintaining standards

“I have this best friend who understands me and helps me through all my tough experiences, and vice versa, you know? It just feels like this is it for me. I used to think, ‘Well, can you really have it all?’ The truth, the excitement, and the passion? Now I know you can," she told Cosmospolitan.

16. Jon Hamm on always keeping your head high

“The world’s your oyster… If the guy doesn’t want to get with you, don’t sweat it. There’s a lot of guys out there," he told Ask A Grown Man.

17. Taylor Swift on the perks of being single

“I think it’s healthy for everyone to go a few years without dating, just because you need to get to know who you are. And I’ve done more thinking and examining and figuring out how to cope with things on my own than I would have if I had been focusing on someone else’s emotions and someone else’s schedule. It’s been really good," she told Esquire.
