Demi Lovato has turned her own troubled past into a reputation for being super honest in her efforts to help other girls avoid her mistakes. In her recent interview with Cosmo on Campus, Demi gave her super honest advice about approaching relationships, especially in your teens. Demi says she made the mistake of cutting out friends and fam for guys in the past – and she always regretted it.

“It is very unhealthy when girls devote all of their time to a guy and forget their friends and family,” she said. “I did that. I was always looking for distractions because I was so afraid of being alone.”

What do you think of Demi’s advice? Have you or a friend ever lost touch with people you care about because of getting too wrapped up in a relationship? Tell us in the comments and on Twitter!
