Jennifer Lopez (J Lo) has said that she is still looking for her perfect man.
The singer and actress, who divorced third husband Marc Anthony earlier this year, was asked by Elle if she had given up looking for the perfect man
“No! I still believe in love. The nirvana man, he’s out there somewhere,” Lopez said.
“But you just have to work at it. You have to work at everything.”
Of being a single mother, Lopez added: “It’s not easy. I’m from a traditional background. It takes two people to make a kid for a reason.
“It’s tough because I know they feel the void of that male presence. When Marc and I first broke up, I did think, ‘I wish I could have held this together’.
“But when you realise it’s not the right thing for anybody, you think, ‘OK, well how do we make this work, how do we make this better, how do we make this great for the children anyway?’.”
Lopez added of love: “Everybody has seen that I make mistakes. Every single album I have ever made is about love. But I am not going to give up.
“I have to look at what I do wrong. I rush in, I get swept up, I ignore the signs. But so many of us are guilty of these things. Each time it goes wrong it’s hard.”
She continued: “I get really hurt but I have to let myself go, ‘What did I do? What can I learn?’
“And as hard and as hurtful as things get, I want to believe I will be able to go one step higher. I’ve got to hope that if I keep going I will eventually get it right.”
