Demi Lovato has slowly begun to talk about her much talked about friendship with Niall Horan from One Direction. She dished that she is still single, but she considers him a close friend who is very supportive of her and her recovery. She hinted that she has never really been single and testing the single waters out, so she can learn to love herself. She seemed wise in her knowledge and knows that she needs to put herself first, which is setting another great example on how teens and women should be. Here is her full statement when she dished to MuchMusic about their friendship and being single.
We’ve actually become really close friends and you know I’m really thankful I have someone who supports me in all aspects. You know, if I need somebody to talk to he’s there for me…No, we’re not dating. I’m single. It wouldn’t be fair to anybody if I was dating them because I wouldn’t be able to give them my attention. And I’ve never really stayed single for longer than a couple of months. So, I’m experimenting with this and I’m really trying to get to know myself and do what’s best for me as a person and as a woman.
It sounds like Demi Lovato has a good head on her shoulders. I hope that she can learn to like herself and know that she does not need anyone else to make her special. It is something that everybody should learn and if Niall Horan can support her on that journey, then great! However, I do think we all know that they are attracted to each other and I am not sure just how long they can stay as just friends. It seems like that could be a pretty big struggle for them at this rate and once they do meet, it will be that much more tough.
How do you feel about Demi’s comments? Should she stay single or should she try her hand at dating Niall?I think that if Niall cares at all, he will wait by her side until she is ready. If he doesn’t, then we all know that they were never meant to be. I do think her staying single is a good call for now. It will allow her to find herself and to focus on what she loves, which is key I think for her to stay single at this point.
