Dove Cameron Explains Why She Keeps Her Love Life Private Now

“I look back at my previous relationships and how public I was with them, and I think it was because my relationship with the public was different,” Dove told Entertainment Tonight.

Dove previously was engaged to Liv & Maddie co-star Ryan McCartan and then she was in a four-year relationship with Descendants co-star Thomas Doherty.

She added, “It’s not that I felt differently about those people or anything like that, it’s just a difference in maturity when you’re dating somebody and you’re 20. You want everyone to know about your love story and now I look back and I’m like, ‘Why would I have done that?’ but it just feels natural when you’re that age. Now I definitely value my privacy more in every regard.”

“It’s not out of fear, I never do anything out of fear… It’s not even [that] I don’t want anyone to be able to comment. I truly don’t. I don’t notice those things. I don’t look for them. I’m not traumatized by people’s opinions,” Dove said. “It just doesn’t feel natural to share. It feels sweeter to keep to myself. There might be days when that’s not true, and then on those days I’ll share. I find it to be sort of like I’m nurturing myself when I follow my instincts, and this is where they are right now.”

Dove recently wrapped a sold out concert tour!
