In the August issue of Cosmopolitan (UK), Rihanna shares what she looks for in a guy, her stand on love and how she dealt with Chris Brown.
"I'm open to love. But guys should have to earn it. Because the minute they get it, they want something else," the singer tells the publication.
"Men are like hunters: they like the chase. So you have to keep 'em guessing. Actually, I'm like that too. I get bored quickly," she admits.
"So if someone can make me laugh, that's the best."
The "S&M" crooner notes that constantly being in the spotlight can dampen the chances of finding a guy who can hang tough with her lifestyle.
"It can definitely be intimidating to guys to date someone in this industry," RiRi, whose last long-term relationship was with Matt Kemp, says.
"It's really hard to find a guy who really doesn't care about that stuff. Right now, it's easier just having my career to focus on."
As for the Chris Brown incident ..."It was an aggressive and defensive time, and allowed me to start not giving a s--t," she says of the attack, which took over her emotions.
"I've always been good at masking my emotions," Rihanna admits, adding that. "For me, it's tougher to be vulnerable than to be tough."
"I walked around with a very f--k-you attitude."
