Ella Eyre thinks she's been too tolerant in relationships


Ella Eyre thinks she's been too tolerant with men in her past relationships.

The 25-year-old singer believes she's been too forgiving towards her ex-boyfriends - but Ella has insisted she's learned her lessons and won't be so forgiving moving forwards.

She shared: "The threshold of bull***t has always been way more than I would put up with now.

"One of my exes was texting people constantly in a way that wasn't fair or appropriate and I kept forgiving that because of what they would say to change my mind.

"Not even excuses, like, they'd be upfront and be like, 'Yeah you're right - I shouldn't be doing this' and 'I'm sorry' and because I was so willing to forgive and wanted everything to go back to normal - which I think a lot of people can be guilty of - it's taken a few relationships of that level of crap to realise that."

Ella attributes her forgiving attitude to her lack of maturity at the time.

The singer - who has been dating a mystery man for the last three years - also claimed that some of the anger and emotion in her music stems from her previous relationships.

She told The Independent's 'Millennial Love' podcast: "I was so young, I've wasted months, possibly years, allowing that to be normal and allowed within a relationship.

"Really, I should have just binned it off. And I think that's why a lot of my songs are quite angry and savage, because they come from a place of, like, I finally binned it off. I finally said I'm not doing this anymore."

Ella also feels her attitude towards love was initially influenced by the separation of her parents.

She said: "I think because I didn't necessarily come from parents that were together, I became obsessed with wanting to find something that I didn't come from.

"Like the ideal ... finding the guy you're going to have kids with and then spending the rest of your life with."
