Jennifer Lopez is just like the rest of us (just with a slightly more flawless booty). She is looking for real love. Recently single, the 45-year-old singer is not giving up hope on finding the one. In an interview with Elle UK, she opens up about her mistakes and failed relationships.

"Everybody has seen that I make mistakes," she tells the magazine. "But I am not going to give up. I have to look at what I do wrong. I rush in, I get swept up, I ignore the signs. But so many of us are guilty of these things. Each time it goes wrong it's hard. 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."

J.Lo broke up with Casper Smart, 27, this past June after two and a half years together. Although the two did recently reconnect on the red carpet at the MTV VMAs.

Casper and J.Lo started dating four months after he split with her third ex-husband, Marc Anthony with whom she has two 6-year-old twins, Max and Emme. Before Marc, she also married Chris Judd and Ojani Noa and who could ever forget her engagement to Ben Affleck?!

Yet, in spite of these failed relationships, she says, "I still believe in love. The nirvana man, he's out there somewhere. But you just have to work at it. You have to work at everything."

We're rooting for you J.Lo!
