She tells Billboard, "Not having someone to share all this with made me miserable at times, to be honest. I wanted nothing more than to be in love and be loved back. That was until I remembered I was sharing it with millions and millions and millions of people. I haven't been ready to be in love again since summer 2009... until now. And I hadn't met anyone along the way who's changed that."
