In case anyone was wondering, Jessica Simpson is a true romantic. The singer talked about the trials and tribulations of her love life in the September issue of Elle magazine. "I was going through a lot of pain," admits the divorcee. "I didn't try anything to change my life other than dating different types of guys and conforming to their worlds. I thought I had to be artsier, more intellectual." On the subject of ex-boyfriend John Mayer, Jessica is philosophical, saying, "John believed in the Jessica Simpson that's within. He cherished our love. He helped make me the woman I am today. John is going to be an amazing man for someone, but I know that I was supposed to be with someone else." That someone else is current squeeze Tony Romo, who Jess seems completely smitten by. "Most of the guys I dated were captivated by my heart but they had different ways of trying to get to me," says Jessica. "Tony understands me. He appreciates my talent. He's the first person I've spiritually connected with. I'm a girl that loves to be in love. I love love!"
