Jennifer Lopez loves being in a relationship. Soon after announcing her separation from Marc Anthony last year, she moved on to her dancer Casper Smart – who has become so comfortable in the household, he even goes on vacations with J and the children. InStyle‘s latest issue features the former American Idol judge talking about love, relationships and the kind of guys she goes for.
“I live by the mantra that God doesn’t give you anything you can’t handle,” Lopez explained to InStyle. “It’s not until something bad or difficult happens that you really get to grow. And then you realize that those difficult moments, the times when you feel pain, are when you do a lot of your growing. You realize, ‘There’s no reason to be terrified of things. Either way I’m going to be okay’.”
Finding the perfect man whom she can spend the rest of her life with may not always be easy for the singer, who spends most of her time working: “The most important quality the man in my life should have is that he is sweet. I like the good guys. The hard part is that you never stop believing in love. You never stop. But that’s also the best part. You never stop believing, and you never, ever give up.”
Despite leaving American Idol last month, Jennifer isn’t looking back. She’s already negotiating deals for several movies, plus an upcoming studio album later this year.
