Candice Accola On Season 2 Of 'Dating Rules From My Future Self'

Candice Accola
The actress dishes on the web series, her teen years and her thoughts on technology and dating.

What’s your most & least favorite thing about having so much technology available in a relationship now?
I gave up Facebook just because I lost touch with it. But, a few years ago I was into Facebook stalking. That can be really detrimental, I think. In this business, it’s really hard with relationships. You work long hours, travel. But, it helps in long-term relationships that you have the ability to connect with people when you want to. It's funny the way it's so easy to sit around in a circle and analyze one text. In the time it takes to send and receive it, it's already been dissected. And then the tone in which you read a text makes all the difference: "Listen to how I can read a text this way versus that way, how different will it sound," … Just agonizing over it. Technology can be great but, yes, it can certainly be a double-edged sword. My Ex Is Famous And So Am I: Breaking Up In The Limelight

So, tell us: Do you believe in true love?
I wholeheartedly believe in it, and in so many different forms: the love for your family, the love for your friends, the love you can have for a person in your life… It's all possible.

If your teen self had this app, what one piece of advice would you share?
The one piece of advice I would give to my younger self (it took me a minute to figure this out) is it's going to work out. When you think it's the end of the world, it's not. The sun will rise. Eventually, it will all work out.

How is your love life treating you?
Everything's beautiful. I’m grateful for how things are going in my life right now.

What love advice would you give our readers?
Don't be too hard on yourself when you think it's hard or you've made a mistake. When you try to dissect why a relationship didn't work out… Just let it go and move on. Also, it should be fun and should make you feel good. Find someone that can make you laugh. Sometimes, it's just that simple.
