Demi Lovato is a confident woman, and she sure isn't afraid to make the first move. 

 

The 25-year-old singer covered the April issue of InStyle and got candid about her dating life following her split from longtime ex Wilmer Valderrama. 

 

"I'm not suffering because I'm alone," she revealed to the magazine. "There were many years I was in a relationship, and I wasn't learning about myself. Now I'm learning about what I like, what I need, and what I want."

There were many years I was in a relationship, and I wasn't learning about myself. Now I'm learning about what I like, what I need, and what I want.

Lovato also explained that she isn't biased when it comes to dating.

 

"I'm very fluid, and I think love is love," she admitted. "You can find it in any gender. I like the freedom of being able to flirt with whoever I want."

 

That includes someone who is going to make her laugh and "treat me like a queen," Lovato told the outlet. Though don't expect her to be anything short of confident.

 

"I'm normally the first one to make the move," she admitted. "I'm always the one who says, 'Let me get your number.' Or I slide into their DMs on Instagram."

At 25, Demi Lovato has turned her struggles into strengths, and is stronger because of it. “You have to speak out about stuff. You have to use your voice for good, she says. “I didnt have anybody who was doing that when I was younger. I grew up in the era of really, really skinny celebrities. That was the look. And it was cool to be seen partying. Drugs were glamorized, and when I was 12 or 13, nobody [I looked up to] was talking about mental illness. Nobody was talking about eating disorders. Nobody was talking about cutting. I wanted somebody for my little sister to look up to. I took on that role because I knew it was important.
