Eminem Discusses His Dating Life & 'Trust Issues'

Eminem may be a hip hop superstar, but his love life is apparently a little empty.

In the November 25 issue of Rolling Stone, the rapper was asked if he dates and he replied that in fact, he does not really.

“Not really,” Eminem told the mag. “As far as going out, like dinner and a movie — I just can’t.”

Eminem said that hitting the town to take a woman on a date causes too much trouble for him to worry about right now.

“Going out in public is just too crazy. I mean, I’d like to be in a relationship again someday. Who doesn’t?” he said. " It’s just hard to meet new people, in my position.”

Beyond his dating woes, Eminem said he finds it hard to trust women – and people in general.

“I have trust issues. With women, friends, whatever,” he said. “You always wonder what their real motives are.”

Like many big stars, Eminem admitted that people close to him are few in number.

“I’ve got a small circle of friends, and it’s a lot of the same friends I’ve known forever. Right now, that works for me,” he said. “I came out of some difficult things these past couple of years. I kind of feel like I’m just now finding my footing. So I want to make sure that’s secure before I go out and do anything else. I need to keep working on myself for a while.”

The Eminem issue of Rolling Stone hits newsstands on Friday.
