Demi Lovato is enjoying every bit of being single, and is in no hurry to get back into a relationship.
After cooling things off with MMA fighter Guilherme “Bomba” Vasconcelos, and sparking rumors that she had rekindled her romance with Wilmer Valderrama after some very cozy pictures of the two surfaced on social media, the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer is setting the record straight on her love life.
Although it’s been difficult for her to adjust to no longer being in a relationship, Demi admits that it’s been an overall great learning experience. She explained in a new interview with SiriusXM's Morning Mash Up by dishing, “I’ve always gone from relationship to relationship, or fling to fling. Like I’ve always had somebody in my life, and this time for the first time in my life I’m not dating anybody.
“I’m learning how to be comfortable with being alone, and I think that’s the most important thing you can do for yourself, especially as a woman is to find your independence,” she continued to say.
It’s a great message to send out to all of her fans, that being in a relationship doesn’t necessarily define you as a person. Of course learning how to be comfortable on her own hasn’t been the easiest thing, but luckily the singer has had a few good people by her side when it has gotten tough.
“I like to have somebody around, especially at nighttime but I hangout with my friends around and they fill that void for me,” she dished.
Though Demi is never really actually alone, thanks to her two adorable pups, and 24-hour security team, which she also made note of in the interview.
One other important thing the “Stone Cold” singer made note of before ending the talk about her love life was self-love. “You have to learn to love yourself before you love other people,” she said.
We’re right there with you, Demi. Great advice as always!
