Ellie Goulding has used her break from touring to “nurture” her relationship.
The ‘Love Me Like You Do’ hitmaker admits it is tough to maintain a relationship when she is away all the time but she has spent the last year “learning to be with someone”.
She said: “I thought for a long time that I could never really take the time to nurture a relationship because I’m never around. I haven’t been touring for the past year, so I think this is the first time I’ve realised what it’s like to be in a relationship and learn to be with someone. It also helps when you find someone who is very special and understands your job.”
And the 31-year-old singer admits it is “unsettling” travelling all the time.
She added to The Observer magazine: “Travelling is the most unsettling aspect of my job.
“The time that I spend somewhere is always so fleeting and I’m never in one place for long. That can stir up emotions, you’re constantly re-evaluating and changing your life plans.”
