In Amy Schumer's new book, The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo, she gets candid about her personal life, especially her dating history.

Schumer said that the chapters of her memoir that were the "most difficult" to write were about when she was in a physically abusive relationship, and the way that she lost her virginity.

But when it comes to the man she started dating earlier this year, furniture designer Ben Hanisch, it's clear the comedy queen has truly found happiness.

According to Schumer, Hanisch is "totally different" from most of the guys she's dated in the past.

"I usually would go for narcissists who, you know, could never be happy," the 35-year-old comic shared. "[Ben's] just very supportive and loving and I think we're very proud of each other."

"He is so far removed from this business that it's really nice," she added.

Schumer and Hanisch went public with their relationship in January, and the two have been super cute and loving in Instagram pics and public appearances in the following months, with Hanisch passionately declaring his love for her numerous times.

But he's not the only one showing Schumer some love. Recently, three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep was asked who she'd like to see play her in a future biopic, and she picked Schumer.

"I shrieked," Schumer admitted, recounting her reaction to watching a clip of Streep's comment over the weekend. "There's just no higher praise from a higher person."
