Davidson has previously dated Ariana Grande, Kate Beckinsale and Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor and said he always tries to be authentic in his relationships.
During an interview with The Breakfast Club in May 2021 while dating Dynevor, the comedian shared his three keys to a successful relationship.
In the interview with The Breakfast Club, Davidson didn't mention Dynevor, but he was open about never tiptoeing into new relationships.
"If I'm into you, I'm really into you," Davidson told the Breakfast Club hosts.
Insiders asked Rachel Sussman, a New York City-based relationship expert, to go through Davidson's three top tips. Overall, Sussman said, this advice is great, but proposed fans should be careful about how they apply it to their own dynamics.

1. How to be honest about your mistakes early in the relationship
"From the top, I'm like, 'Hey, I'm crazy. Here are all my problems. Here's what I do. Here are the therapists. And that can either be a lot for someone ... or they could be like, 'Cool, that was really refreshingly honest,'" Davidson said.
The "best version" of yourself is going to fade anyway, Davidson said.
Sussman said she could only agree: Too many people hide parts of themselves early in a relationship.
"For the first few months that you're dating someone, you're dating their ambassador, which means a lot of the time people aren't authentic," Sussman told Insider.
Sussman said being honest early in the relationship is a quick way to tell if a person is okay with everything about you, but cautioned that it's a delicate dance. While she thinks being open about seeing a therapist can lead to a good conversation, for example, she said not to share too much.
Sussman also cautioned against putting down an ex-partner if that's a topic you want to share.
2. Communication is key
Davidson doesn't think you should wait to text anyone.
"It should just be like, 'Hey, something's wrong today.' 'Hey, I'm really happy today,'" Davidson said.
Sussman loved that point. Communication is vital to a relationship.
"It's how we get to know the other person, this is how we share things, this is how we create intimacy," Sussman said.
3. When your partner is busy, it's okay to give them space
"If you trust the person and you love them, they do their thing, whatever, I think as long as you can keep in touch or understand each other, you'll be fine. That would be my advice," Davidson said.
Sussman agreed with Davidson's advice, saying that the best relationships strike a balance between not being overly independent and not being overly dependent.
When you spend time away from your partner, you build yourself up and define yourself, Sussman said.
"And then when you meet up with your boyfriend or girlfriend, you have even more things to talk about."
