Jennifer Lopez's loves and losses have played out in the public eye for decades, but the sometimes painful publicity hasn't made the singer gun-shy when it comes to romance.
"Everybody has seen that I make mistakes. Every single album I have ever made is about love. But I am not going to give up," the 45-year-old star told ELLE UK in a new interview. "I have to look at what I do wrong. I rush in, I get swept up, I ignore the signs."
Adding, "But so many of us are guilty of these things."
J.Lo -- who broke up with Casper Smart in June -- said splits have not become any easier to deal with.
"Each time it goes wrong it’s hard," she said. "I get really hurt but I have to let myself go, 'What did I do? What can I learn?' And as hard and as hurtful as things get, I want to believe I will be able to go one step higher.
"I’ve got to hope that if I keep going I will eventually get it right," she added.
Despite her failed relationships, the "Booty" singer said she hasn't given up on finding "the one."
"I still believe in love. The nirvana man, he’s out there somewhere," she told the mag. "But you just have to work at it. You have to work at everything."
