"You've got to love yourself first," Lopez says in Glamour's December issue, on newsstands November 8. "And until you value yourself enough and love yourself enough to know that, you can't really have a healthy relationship."
On Tuesday, the actress and singer told "The Insider's" Kevin Frazier that she is not closed off to the possibility of remarriage, but that it's "too early for that."
"I'm just a girl like anybody else, looking for what she's looking for, hoping for the best and knowing that if somebody great comes along, great," she said. "If not, I'm still fine, everything's fine."
But if she does decide to settle down again, she told Glamour she'd do things differently: "I think to give something a chance, to really get to know somebody, you want to do it out of the public eye. You know the media -- they want to rush everything."
