By many accounts, Demi Lovato is dating Wilmer Valderrama. But in the January issue of Glamour, the singer doesn’t mention that older actor by name.

She does, however, respond to a question about her love life in general, going into detail about what she’s seeking in a boyfriend.

“Someone who’s not only supportive in my career but also in my [emotional] recovery. It’s a big responsibility dating me. Because I come with a little bit of baggage, you know? I’m completely open. I’m honest about the journey I’ve been on, so I definitely don’t take dating lightly anymore. And they have to make me laugh!”

That journey, sadly, has included years of cutting. Lovato says she reminds herself of those low points via tattoos on each wrist.

“I think scars are like battle wounds – beautiful, in a way. They show what you’ve been through and how strong you are for coming out of it. My tattoos say “Stay strong.” “Stay on one [wrist] and “strong” on the other. Now I’m able to look at them and be thankful for being alive. I think that I’ve been blessed over the past year to be able to start over.”
