Justin Bieber Reveals His Five Key ‘Boyfriend’ Tips

Believe singer shares his advice with MTV News: 'Girls can be tough sometimes, so you just got to be patient.'

Justin Bieber proclaims all the things he wants to do to get the apple of his eye to be his girlfriend on his single “Boyfriend.”

According to the lyrics , he’ll buy her lots of nice things, take her on trips, heat up some fondue, sing in falsetto and be generally swaggie, whatever that means. While those suggestions are sweet gestures to put into song, when MTV News sat down with Bieber on the set of his music video for the Believe track, he broke down the ways, in real life, a guy can be the best boyfriend he can possibly be.

“I don’t know if I’m even the best boyfriend,” Bieber admitted, “but I can give a few suggestions.”

Well, after taking a second to get his tips together, Selena Gomez’s beau had timeless advice for any clueless fellas out there: “I think being honest and patient, because girls can be tough sometimes, so you just got to be patient. That’s two,” he explained. “Forgive, and have fun, because it’s about having fun.”

So, what was Bieber’s final piece of advice? “Last one?” he said. “Be faithful.”

In addition to those five simple steps, Bieber recently dished to Seventeen magazine about another one of his dating philosophies. “I’m just trying to make [Selena] happy, that’s all,” he shared. “I think it’s important to make all women feel like they’re princesses, because every girl is a princess. I’m serious.”

“Boyfriend,” with production and writing credits from Mike Posner and Mason Levy, is the swoon-worthy lead single off his highly anticipated next release. Believe is set to drop later this year, and will include appearances from Bieber’s rapping alter ego Shawty Mane , Drake and possibly even his skateboarding buddy, Lil Wayne.
