Daniel Radcliffe terrible at dating

2012-01-08 22:38

Los Angeles - Daniel Radcliffe is terrible at dating.

The 22-year-old actor - who has been in a relationship with Rosie Coker, a production assistant he met on the set of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for two years - admitted he had no idea what to do on their first few dates.

He told Parade magazine: "I hated dating, because I'm crap at it! With Rosie, I didn't know what was appropriate, like on which date you're supposed to try and kiss her.

"I went to kiss Rosie and at the last minute lost my nerve and ended up kissing her neck, which is a very intimate place to kiss somebody on the second date. Fortunately, she just found it really funny."

Although Daniel claims he is "not an easy person to love", he says he has never been happier than he is now with Rosie.

He said: "There are lots of times when I'm a very good boyfriend, but there are times when I'm useless.

"I mean, I'm a mess around the house. I talk nonstop. I become obsessed with things [fantasy football, most recently]. And she listens to it, and she loves me for my oddness, my awkwardness - all of those things that I hate about myself.

"When Rosie's here, every day seems better.

"Ultimately, I think, it comes down to that - having somebody in your life who makes you happier than you thought you could be."
