Tennis star Serena Williams says she's done dating for 'next decade'

The 30-year-old tennis star who has dated rappers Common and Drake tells Celebuzz that her failed relationships in the past have hurt her so badly, she doesn’t want to be in a relationship for the next decade.

Serena tells Celebuzz
I have given up on dating. It just hasn't worked out well for me. I'm a really emotional person. I give my all and everything. I do make mistakes, like every human does, but the last relationship was just too much of a heart break for me. I just can't go through that anymore. It was hard. I just have to remove myself from that atmosphere for about the next decade or so.
Dear women, don't let a broken relationship leave you bitter. Life is too short, love is too beautiful!

Good for you dear! but if I may ask, how is that our biz? U can resume dating post-menopause mtchew.

She obviously fell into the wrong hands. Pity, but she needs help. This is how some ladies become lesbians. My fellow men, don't go about breaking people's hearts. Ladies, don't give your heart to men cos they will break it. Give your heart to God and He will give you a man that has also given his heart to God. I rest my case!

I don't blame her though. Sometimes you get into a relationship that takes everything away from you emotionally, because you've given your all. Its not just women, men go through that shit too. A decade is too long, but she definitely needs time to find her self and be confident enough to share her life with another.

NA agro go affect this babe... why do celebrities think they can find true love by dating other celebrities?? that is Camera love not true love. she needs to go look for someone not in the spot light of things and it would be better for her

aww, love hurts so bad sometimes. i wish her good luck. Love, Relationships and Marriage is not for everyone. Happiness IS though, so i hope she finds happiness.

You took the words right out of my mouth. I know what she feels i av been there thats why i have decided no more relationships love sounds like a marriage to me now. Any dude catching feelings is on his own am not interested #teamgetmoney.com

Anonymous said...

some pple hv not been there so they r free to run their mouth as they lyk.

Love wen u giv all ur heart hurts badly cos the person u give ur heart to feels u r weak and afraid of loosing them nd they dont feel challenged by anything cos u give them evrythin they want emotionally and all

Let me say dis if u are a lady dont give ur heart until you r married! B4 u even get married be sure ur guy luvs more than u luv him, it wrks more, i dnt say dnt luv him but be sure he wants you more than u want him.

More lyk be wise like a serpent, gentle like a dove or u will keep having d same experience in all ur relationships trust me

Plus Linda its courteous if/wen u post a comment that is not vulgarism. thank u!

@ Mordi, Lebanese ke o_O ? Abi na lesbian u wan talk? O ga o. Lebanese ko Egyptian ni!

zoomzoomzoom said...

I think you mean 'lesbian' and not 'lebanese'? cos I don't see the correlation of Lebanese& this article.anyways..

Anonymous said...

She should stop giving her 'everything' to a relationshp cos when a wman does that and d man leaves...well,he takes away the everything!Simple

Blackknight! said...

That's because you've been dating the wrong people.As someone who is very emotional and as such a marriage material, How could you date 'Common' and 'Drake' and expect to be happy in the relationship?These are young dudes who work in an industry that is not marriage friendly and pushes them to cheat.
So sorry abt your pains, but babe, you did yourself by looking for love in the wrong place.Hmmm..does love really suck?

Bellaz said...

Na wah oh...she needs to date a non-celebrity.common and drake? no wonder she is damaged emotionally. Those men are players now.

sniff, sniff, sniff. Serry baby, I just cain't help it, am all so emotional too. Crying my eyes out for you. Can I suggest we hook up sometime so that the emotional me and the emotional you can just waste a lota handkies sniffing and cleaning. I'll tell you my tale and you will tell me yours and we'll end up hugging and holding each other and then happily live ever after.

But seriously, Serena get a grip on your life. If you'll believe in love and be loving and not restrict yourself to celebrities and hook up with any middle class American, you may have a bette chance at love. Wishing you well.

RealTruthHurts said...

Ha. So Serena is just 30yrs old! God wetin come happen to my life o

Deep Soul said...

She obviously didn't mean "a decade", literally. A decade can also mean "a very long time".

Example: I haven't seen you in eons. Is any right-thinking person gonna literally interpret that? Methinks not :)

Now, who do I send my Literature lesson bill to?

We've all said that someday out of despair... she'll get over the past

If it's not ur bizness then why are u reading or commenting on it? She wasn't talking to u, was she? She was asked a question and she gave an answer. U will just be harboring unnecessary negative energy towards ppl for nothing. MUMU
