During a special Valentine’s Day episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, host Kelly Clarkson opened up about dating. 

Over the past few months, Clarkson has been going through a very public divorce from Brandon Blackstock. Still, the singer has a positive outlook on dating, particularly when it comes to “dating herself.”

“This is going to get real boring but I’m a mom of real tiny tots, so I love like, literally having a glass of wine,” Clarkson told viewers. “I put the fireplace in on in my bedroom. That’s right, I work hard, I have a fireplace in my bedroom, that’s fine. I read a book or I watch some Netflix or I literally just hang out with my girls. I love that. I love just having like one or two glasses, a respectable amount, and having fun and talking.”

The former Idol winner also opened up about one of her past relationship experiences. When taking questions from the audience, one person asked: 

“What’s something that you pretended to be cool with that you weren’t cool with while in a relationship?”

After giving her guest stars a chance to answer the question, Clarkson candidly shared a story, which revealed one of her biggest relationship pet peeves. The star recalled:

“I dated this guy, and I think because I’m a singer/songwriter, if you date them, they feel like, ‘Oh, I’m going to write her a song.’ And…don’t.”
