Rihanna Finds It Hard to Date After Chris Brown

Rihanna’s public breakup with R&B singer Chris Brown over 2 years ago is still affecting her love life. The “Only Girl” hitmaker, who is currently single, says she is “open to love” but sometimes guys find her intimidating.

“It can definitely be intimidating to guys to date someone in this industry,” she tells UK’s Cosmopolitan magazine in their August issue. “It’s really hard to find a guy who doesn’t care about that stuff. Right now, it’s easier just having my career to focus on.”

How can a guy change her status? “I’m open to love,” she says, “But guys should have to earn it. Because the minute they get it, they want something else.”

For now, the 23-year-old has no plans of settling down with a man. “Men are like hunters: they like the chase,” she adds. “So you have to keep ’em guessing. Actually, I’m like that too. I get bored quickly. So if someone can make me laugh, that’s the best.”

Outside of her past relationship with Brown and company, RiRi says her personality also makes dating complicated. “I’ve always been good at masking my emotions. For me, it’s tougher to be vulnerable than to be tough.”

Well, at least she is not bashing her former boyfriends, which shows a lot of maturity!
