A while back, Jennifer Lopez kicked her baby boyfriend, Casper Smart, to the curb, and she hasn’t hooked up with anyone else since. Sure, she’s been linked to Dancing with the Stars hunk (lol) Maksim Chmerkovskiy, but apparently that was all just gossip, because she’s loving being single.

From The Meredith Viera Show (via US Weekly):

“I’m just being on my own. I feel like I need that right now,” the mom of two said when asked about her relationship status. “I’ve been in relationships kind of back-to-back my whole life and I just needed time.”

“I need time to just chill and just know me and enjoy my kids and actually make time for other friends instead of just the relationship thing,” the “I Luh Ya Papi” singer, who split from Casper Smart after two and half years together this past June, told the talk show host.

Lopez, who recently released her eighth album A.K.A, added, “All of a sudden, all the relationships in your life and everything starts working when you take care of yourself.”

Okay, first of all, when did Meredith Viera get a show and why? Second of all, live your life, girl. It’s good to be single for a while – there’s seriously nothing worse than a woman (or man, obviously) who doesn’t know how to be alone and completely has a meltdown when she’s not in a relationship. Companionship is wonderful and fantastic, but you should not fall apart when you don’t have it. Get it together.
