PopSugar.com reported "Jennifer Lopez, 45, covers the January issue of Self Magazine. In the interview, she opens up about love, life, and why it's "no big deal" for women to date younger men, as she's one of several famous women who have hit it off with younger guys.
On her high-profile relationships: 'When you have that much pain, you have to anesthetize yourself in some ways. People do different things. Some go out and party and sleep around, but that's just not my way. I found the comfort in someone else. That's called being a love addict. When I face myself, I go, You have a fear of really being on your own. So you know what? That's what we're gonna do right now. But it took me years to get there. So first it was learning to love myself. And then it was about facing my fears.'"
I definitely agree that Jennifer comes across at times as a love addict. Sure, there are plenty of men who she dates and it's just that -- a date.
It's when she does fall that we all watch her fall so hard and very fast for the men in her life. One minute she's single, the next she's spending every minute with her new guy. I can't necessarily say that she's being dramatic on this one.
But it isn't the dates that she goes on that make her the love addict. Truly, it's the hot and heavy relationships that move at lightning speed.
In my blog, I frequently tell the newly single woman to start dating as soon as possible after a break-up. No sense in being miserable if there are eligible men who want to date.
Some could argue that this advice fosters love addicts. In my mind, though, it keeps women from pining over men who don't want them or failed relationships in general.
Remember, the love addict is someone who jumps from one relationship to the next -- heart, body, mind, all of it! Going out on dates that you end first and don't result in spilling your life story and sleeping with a man does not make you a love addict.
Great for JLo that she's coming to terms with who she is, but don't mistake this for you if you're a happily dating single woman!
Until next time...
