    Here's what she said on past love: "You're in a phase of life where you experience love for the first time and I think that that can just be a little toxic."

    On future love: "I want to know what that love will look like next for me. I want it to be real and I don’t want it to be co-dependent or messy, or lack of communication."

    On being "super, super single for two years": "I’ve been having way too much fun being on my own."

    On how she would “do so many things differently”: “I would be very transparent. I don’t have room to buffer things that I need or that I want."

    On love overall: “I never want to lose the sense of love that I imagine it to be. I don’t want to be jaded or bitter from anything. I believe that it exists."

    Selena admitted that she "loves love," is still a "hopeless romantic," and that she's "happier than she's ever been."

    So happy that our girl is out here loving life! It's what she deserves ❤️❤️❤️!!
