The 45-year-old singer - who has six-year-old twins Max and Emme with her ex-husband Marc Anthony - is enjoying being single and believes it will be beneficial for her to be on her own for a while.
Speaking on the Meredith Vieira Show last night (08.09.14), she said: "I'm just being on my own. I feel like I need that right now. I've been in relationships kind of back-to-back my whole life and I just needed time.
"I need time to just chill and just know me and enjoy my kids and actually make time for other friends instead of just the relationship thing."
The I Luh Ya Papi hitmaker - who split from choreographer Casper Smart in June following two-and-a-half years together - hasn't ruled out finding love again but believes everything will fall into place once she starts to take "care" of herself a bit better.
She explained: "All of a sudden, all the relationships in your life and everything starts working when you take care of yourself."
However, Jennifer - who has divorced three times - insists she's only interested in a committed relationship, rather than embark on causal sex with no strings attached.
She said previously: "I like being in a relationship. I'm not one to like wh**e around and stuff like that - that's not my thing."
