Does True Love Even Exist If Liza Koshy And David Dobrik Can't Make It?

"Say you're going to spread mayonnaise when you only have mustard." -Liza Koshy

SPOILER ALERT!! If you have not watched Liza Koshy and David Dobrik's #1 trending YouTube video on David's channel, you can check it out by clicking HERE.

If you don't know who this iconic Youtube power couple is or was let me get you to speed. Liza Koshy A.K.A. Little Brown Girl has been on the YouTube scene for around two years. You may remember her from that one retired app, Vines. On YouTube, she has her fans laughing throughout her whole video full of puns.

One of the very first videos I remember watching them as a couple was when Liza ran into the store to buy David some flowers for their date. While in the store, she ran into none other than David himself who was also buying flowers for their date! All of their fans' hearts (including my own) melted as the story began.

They were together two years!

I know things are different behind closed doors, and people act a lot while on camera to avoid getting too personal. But with those two, you could just look at their pictures and tell that they were deeply in love.

So imagine the shock felt not only me but also by all of their other fans when David posted his video titled "We Broke Up."

I laughed it off when I first saw it. Yes, there have been rumors, but they also have a lot of clickbait titles.

As soon as I clicked on the video, I was in tears. It started off with them making jokes about being single and breaking up. But at minute 1:12 of the video, they pause, and David adds text to say that they had to take a break and then another that says "2 hours later."

With Liza back on the screen, you can clearly see she has been crying. That is when I cried--these two created this illusion that true love does exist. They made it seem like no matter how rich or famous you become, if you are meant to be with that person, it will be like that.

After watching their video, I realized that is just not how it works.

At the beginning of the video, David says, "It wasn't healthy for us to continue to be together...for now."

Questions, lots of questions. Why not? What wasn't healthy? Was he hurting her? Who ended it? Is it over forever?

To answer the question as to why they broke up, David says, "Liza broke up with me because she felt like we've been too busy," which I at first thought was kind of crappy of her. But Liza came back with that it was like they were living "two separate lives," and being in a long-term relationship while living separate lives is tough, so it made a lot more sense.

Even in tears and being young, she said some very wise words: "We're so young. We're so young."

The same thing our parents tell us when we dive headfirst into a relationship. But it made sense; they are young, and they still have so much room to grow and develop. By trying to force a relationship that just wasn't there, they would only add to the stress.

Liza had always hinted that things were rough sometimes, but with all her jokes and laughs, it was hard to see what really lay beneath the surface.

In the video, Liza said, "I really want to spread love, but I have to have it first. You know?" I feel like a lot of people can relate to this statement. If you don't love yourself, it is so hard to love someone else or take in that they love you back. She compared this to saying "you're going to spread mayonnaise when you only have mustard."

In the back of my mind, I am waiting for David to blame her or even say something mean. But the whole video, all he has to say are jokes and supporting comments. One of my favorites is when he says, "I always say this to people: I know online-Liza seems like she's a really nice girl. But if you get to know her, it's the exact same thing. Like there's not a bad bone in her body."

They waited three months to tell friends and family that they had broken up and six months to reveal the truth to their fans. Their relationship was so different from any other YouTuber relationship I have ever seen before.

You could tell throughout the video that was the hardest thing that they had done together. Their tears were very real, and no matter how many times I waited for them to say, "JUST KIDDING," but they never did.

They did end on a positive note and are clearly working toward their careers and not trying to force anything. They are taking baby steps, basically, and if they do find their way back together in the future, that would be great. But what would be best is making sure that they are happy.

I have already seen a lot of negative stuff saying they didn't HAVE to post that video, that they were just doing it for attention. That's not true; their fans love them and watching them together, and if they just suddenly stopped, it would have been a lot of questions.

Besides, they have always been open since day one, so why would they not address their break up and what their fans can expect in the future?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
