The Boy Next Door star revealed:
"I had to make a commitment to myself to be alone: no flirting. No possibility of anything. No boys in any way, shape or form. I said, 'I'm shutting it down'. I'd never been alone."
Wow, shutting it down sounds intense!
The actress added:
"I always found my comfort in another person. Instead of giving myself time to heal and be on my own, I was so afraid to be that I was always like, 'Okay somebody else just come in here and help me forget I'm in so much pain.'"
While we're sad Jenny was in so much pain, we're happy she has now found peace with the single life!
As for what the 45-year-old has learned since swearing off dating, she explained:
"I was terrified of being alone. Listen, at the end of the day, love is the best thing. But what I've discovered is that I can't get that from somebody else. It's the love inside me, for myself, that will help me through."
Woah, Lopez sounds so wise and mature!
Considering all of Jennifer's self-improvement, we have no doubt she'll one day find true love!
