One of the most annoying things about being single is the perpetual “So, are you dating anyone?” question. Like, can we put a moratorium on that phrase? It does nobody any good. However, if we’re gonna answer that question, let’s take a page from Bella Hadid’s playbook. Hadid’s response to questions about her dating life is to-the-point, unbothered, and empowered; aka how this question is meant to be answered.

The dating rumors started when Hadid was ~spotted~ with this guy.

His name is Daniel Chetrit, he is a DJ, and SHOCKER, he’s friends with Hadid. They’ve been spotted on platonic walks around New York, so naturally, the internet digitally gasped and tried to insinuate that they are dating.

Hadid was having none of it. false

Next time someone wonders if you’re dating your friend that you grabbed lunch with, hit ’em with the above.

Also, any relationship therapist will tell you that if you want a strong relationship, you need to be a whole and happy individual first.

Hadid had a similar response to questions about her dating life after she broke up with The Weeknd.

“It’s like I’m finally getting to the point where I can just think about what I want to do and the places I want to go,” Hadid told Grazia in May. “I want to be as independent as possible and worry about myself rather than anyone else.”

Literally the definition of “Just out here doing me!” Keep doing YOU, Bella Hadid.
