“It’s the closest thing to being held hostage without actually being in a hostage situation.”

Have you ever tried to make plans with friends over a group text? Trying to figure out a day when everyone can meet will inevitably turn into a struggle that lasts for days or WEEKS. Someone picks a date and someone else can’t make it. Someone suggests another date and a different person is unavailable. If you’re the one friend who can’t make it on a day that everyone else can, you pretty much become a pariah. To help illustrate what a pain in the ass it is, Jimmy Kimmel enlisted Fifth Harmony to “sing a group text.”

Lauren Jauregui Says That the Imaginary Relationship That Fans Invented Between Her and Camila Cabello Was ‘Traumatizing’

Former Fifth Harmony member Lauren Jauregui is opening up about a traumatic time in her life that affects the way she approaches romantic relationships to this day.

On Becky G‘s En La Sala podcast, Jauregui revealed that the imaginary relationships that fans “shipped” between her and Camila Cabello made her “disgustingly uncomfortable”.

As a background, “shipping” is an internet phenomenon in which fans want two people (either real or imagined) to get together in a romantic relationship. On the internet, “shipping” usually consists of fans producing art or other creative works to support their imagined storyline.

Jauregui and Cabello were the centerpiece of such a fandom. Fans even had an imagined portmanteau for the duo: “Camren”. Fans would interpret everything–a stray glance, a lingering hug, them dancing on stage together–as evidence that they were secretly dating. But the two women were never in a romantic relationship.

Jauregui–who now identifies as bisexual–explained that the rumors upset her so much for a myriad of reasons. First, she didn’t have romantic feelings towards Cabello. “Camila and I were just very good friends at that time,” she explained to Becky G. “And we respected each other. When each other would talk, we would look at each other. We had love for each other. Like, genuine friendship.”

Number two, Jauregui was aware that Cabello was not queer, and that fact further complicated things.

“It made me feel like a predator,” she said. “Because of the type of clips people would put together and the type of stories people would write and the type of stuff–I was always the aggressor and I was always the one turning her. I was always the one who was the ‘masculine’ energy in the scenario and it made me very uncomfortable because that is not how I identify.”

Jauregui also explains that the rumors were hard for her because, at the time, she wasn’t ready to come out publicly. “I wasn’t even comfortable with telling my parents about it,” she said. “I wasn’t even comfortable telling myself that I was queer.”

All of the speculation around her relationship with Cabello had lasting effects on her confidence with women.

“To this day I have an issue flirting with girls because I don’t want to make them think that I’m trying to invade or anything like that,” she revealed.

Jauregui went on to say that she doesn’t usually talk about that time of her life in public because it was “so traumatizing” for her. “I just chose to ignore it at a certain point, because getting angry to [those fans] would mean that it was real and validated it more for them. So I was like, okay, then I can’t get angry or defend myself, apparently, because that just makes it more real [for them]. It just really f—– with my head.”

Lauren Jauregui’s revelation is just another example of how fans can sometimes forget that celebrities are people too. Unfortunately, Jauregui experienced trauma at the hands of people who probably thought the entire thing was just fun and games.

There’s no denying that a well-worded text message sent to your love can go along way in terms of keeping things lively in a relationship. Of course, while those “three little words” are always a wonderful message to give and receive in a relationship, sometimes something silly or sexy can be even better

To help find some unique messages to share with your boo we scoured Reddit for the most romantic texts users had sent or received.

Check them out below!

For couples in long term relationships.

“I’m gonna snuggle the fuck out of you when I get home. Then make dinner.” –cupcakeinvestigator

“Overly long context: I don’t usually PMS, but there was one week a couple months ago where I just felt like an emotional wreck, and it was freaking me out because I don’t usually get like that. I had been dating my boyfriend a few months, and he invited me to a game night with his friends, whom I had not met before. I was very frustrated about the evening because I like knowing details and planning in advance, but I was looped into everything very late and was getting super frustrated with my boyfriend that I hadn’t been provided more information sooner. When I saw that people were planning on bringing food, I complained to my boyfriend that I had nothing to bring since I found out about everything too late to cook or go to the store. I was going to meet his friends for the first time and show up empty-handed.

Me: well now I feel a little useless that everyone is bringing something and I’m just there to be fed and provided with drinks

Him: You bring joy to me 🙂

That message completely popped my PMS bubble of angst. It was so unexpectedly sweet and reminded me to start focusing on the good things in my life at that moment rather than everything that was stressing me out.” – queen_in_my_pictures

For couples who love to laugh.

“Ok, so my husband has these meaty, nubby fingers and sometimes isn’t the most accurate with his texting. I was feeling really blue and sad, and he tried to text me “I love you more than you know”, but it ended up coming out “I live you more than YOLO” and then I proceeded to laugh until I cried.” – dioxazine_violet

For couples who like to keep things short.

“You make me feel like I’m worth something” – PanicSong

“Love doesn’t even begin to describe it. You are my everything.” –
monotonouslullaby

“I get so fucking excited every time your name pops up on my screen.”- Sister_Winter

“Good morning my Aphrodite.” – Stephalopod

For couples with a lot to say.

“I rly do mean that you’re the greatest part of my life. I honestly can’t imagine living a life without you now. You make life so much better. You’re the one I trust above all others. The one who always makes me smile. The one who I feel is always there beside me. You rly are the world to me. And I couldn’t be happier. Nobody will ever come close to the place you hold in my heart. I know you are the girl I want to spend my life with.” –Luminaria19

“So I’m about to get up and get ready for work. I can’t tell you how much I hate leaving your side, and how much I just want to hold you while your sleep. You’re the most wonderful thing in my life, ladypage and I wish every day was our day off together. I’ll see you later in the afternoon. I love you very, very much, ladypage.”- ladypage16

“I still can’t believe that someone so perfect for me was so close to home. <3 I’m so happy to have met you and fall in love with you.” – Luminaria19

“But honestly, there’s a purity about you that just emanates. And I don’t know what it is, but I have this overwhelming feeling of peace when I talk to you. It’s kind of like if I died tomorrow I would be ok because I know someone like you exists.- Scarletlipstick

For the couple that’s completely happy.

“I’m so glad you happened to me. You make me a better person.” – rankly_birdie

“I like you the way you are and I think you’re perfect for me. You’re experiences and decisions shaped you into who you are right now and I love who you are so really it all worked out for the better.” – nottattooed
