“It takes a lot of courage to tell the woman that you love that you love her,” Mendes told the outlet. “I had five years of fear of getting rejected by her that just stopped me from doing it every time, or just confidence. It just took a lot. It took a long time of preparing.”

Now, he’s not afraid to share his feelings about Cabello and says that nothing is off-limits when it comes to writing songs about her.

“We really don’t put any rules or boundaries on what we are writing about or in our art,” he explained to Entertainment Tonight. “I think the truth about being celebrities and being in a relationship is that it’s super tricky because there are a lot of people who want to know more than what is maybe normal just to give out, they want more personal stuff.”

Mendes even admitted that both he and Cabello are hopeless romantics and are super emotional — especially when to comes to their songwriting.

“I think we are both equally very mushy, and I think we are both extremely mushy people,” Mendes shared when asked whom of the two is mushier when it comes to writing songs. “I think we are both super sensitive which creates a lot of sensitivity in our relationship, but we are songwriters so we are constantly searching for the best topics in life and I don’t know, I am pretty mushy. I don’t know what she would answer or how she would answer that. I feel like she would probably say I am much more mushy.”
