Kate Hudson has finally broken the silence about her new boyfriend, Muse singer Matt Bellamy.  Hudson calls Bellamy, “lovely” in the new issue of >Elle UK.  She says, “Matt and I are just learning about each other and it’s wonderful.”  Hudson has a long history of heartache, including ex-husband Chris Robinson and former flames Alex Rodriguez, Owen Wilson and Lance Armstrong.  But Hudson hasn’t let her romantic past cloud her future.  Us Magazinereports that although she’s not looking to marry again, she is still open to a new relationship.  “I think a lot of times people are terrified of love and stop themselves from experiencing it.  I don’t ever want to get that jaded.  I do believe in love.”How do you avoid being jaded by past relationships?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s easy to feel like giving up and turning into a reclusive cat lady when you look back on your history of failed affairs.  Cupid has some ideas about how to stay open to new relationships:

1. Gain perspective: Don’t assume that just because your relationship’s ended, you failed.  Remember that every partner teaches you something about yourself and what you want, so that next time, maybe you can make it work.

2. Don’t let your past dictate your future: Just because your past boyfriends were jerks, doesn’t mean the next one will be.  It’s up to you to make sure history doesn’t repeat itself.

3. Be optimistic: Kate had every reason to give up on finding the right man.  But by staying open-minded and never losing her faith in love, she eventually found someone “lovely.”
