If you鈥檝e been exposed to the brutal world that is the modern dating scene, you know it鈥檚 tough out there. With only 6% of singles meeting at bars聽or clubs (yikes), first interactions are moving aggressively into cyberspace. But if you鈥檙e a major A-list celeb, chances are you probably don鈥檛 have a Tinder account because, you know鈥 stalkers. So what鈥檚 a famous, single twentysomething like Jennifer Lawrence to do? Find a dude through work, obviously. Except according to a confession she made last night, it seems she tends to forget one VERY crucial step in the courting process.

While making an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers, J.Law used the opportunity to come clean about something: She used to have a HUGE crush on Seth. She tells him, 鈥淚 had this whole plan like all week. I was like 鈥楬e鈥檚 going to ask me out. He鈥檚 totally going to ask me out鈥 and then later in the week I was like 鈥業鈥檓 going to ask him out.'鈥 She goes on to say, 鈥淚 created the romance in my head because I鈥檓 delusional.鈥 Sadly for Jen, just as she was pumping herself up to make the big move, a woman in SNL鈥榮 wardrobe department told her, 鈥淗oney, he鈥檚 engaged.鈥

Jennifer goes on to say, 鈥淚 would never go out for somebody鈥檚 man but I always forget about step one: Find out if he already has a woman. I get so carried away and into the delusion of like 鈥極h my god, we鈥檙e in love!'鈥 There are many things we鈥檝e learned from Lawrence, but this one is definitely going to stick with us for the long haul.
