Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez

Jennifer Lopez has learned a valuable lesson from her past relationships with emotionally unavailable men.

J-Lo, who is a Love addict, is apparently resisting the urge to continue the same behavior that cost her many relationships in the past.

Jennifer says she won't "pressure" her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez for an engagement ring after only one year of dating.

Clearly Alex told Jennifer that real women wait for real men to ask them for their hand in marriage -- not the other way around.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night, Jennifer, who has been married three times and dated countless men, shared that she wasn't expecting an engagement ring from Alex.

"El Anillo means the ring," she said of her newly released song, before gesturing to her ring finger. Host Jimmy then said, "Alex are you watching?" To which Jennifer quickly replied: "No pressure!"

She then explained that "El Anillo" was an anthem for women in relationships who are anxiously waiting for their men to put a ring on it.

"The song is definitely about that. I felt like it was something that women get. (We get to a point where we say), 'We're good, everything's great, what's going on? Am I staying or am I going?'" the 48-year-old told Jimmy.

"I feel like you know very quickly. The rest is like (men) just being scared and whatever. But don't go by me, I've made tons of mistakes!"

During the interview, Jennifer also revealed one of Alex's annoying quirks – his ability to drop baseball lingo into just about every conversation.

"It's baseball day and night, night and day," she laughed. "I'm like, 'Baby, what time do you think you're going to be home?' He says, 'Right now, I'm in the seventh inning of the meeting.' So, is that like 20 minutes? I don't know. He's like, 'Keep your head in the game.' All the time."

    Jennifer, who has been married three times
    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    And engaged 4 times. Whatever. If she likes it I love it. Okay thats a lie. Any other woman (*cough cough* black) do this shit she is broken. A hoe. Something wrong with her. Liz Taylor and JHo up top get to be unlucky in love and deemed a hopeless romantic. Halle gets called names.

    Fukk her. She prolly needs to do some kegels. Slore.

  • Honest

    J-Lo(Whom I worked with) once said she "has been a fan of Janet Jackson since she was a little girl"! Ok J-Lo you're not much younger than Janet. Like Janet is so much older than U. Smh

  • MissHarlem

    I always got room

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    she tried it though....

  • Nicolep

    Well, considering that she has been married 59 times she can be patient.. It aint like she's a 25 year old never married before gal longing to be wifed up! I have always liked her and I like them together... Maybe she should go the Oprah route.. If their relationship is good why risk it with marriage when marriage has failed for you again, again, and again! She's even had a failed engagement! #DontDoIt #Reconsider

  • ShelbyMoore

    She was basic as hell in Money Train....and that's why her daughter looks the way she does and not like this new plastic surgery enhanced JLo.

  • MissHarlem

    She's always been basic to me ?

  • Quitedeliteful

    Aren't they living together already? A ring would be nice just for the sake of having a pretty piece of bling but if she doesn't tie the knot she'll be good. She has children. She's been married a few times already. I say just enjoy the ride...

  • Coffee1st

    I never want to be malicious to anyone. I just don't get all the hoopla about this chic though. She's a somewhat glorified Kardashian type.

  • ViolettaBliss

    I just cant with this fake needy hag anymore....

  • The Chosen One

    she can't act or sing.

  • Junkanoo

    She's so over rated and tired why does she get so much work in the industry cause it has nothing to do with talent

  • Yoni7

    LOL I will. LOL

  • Yoni7

    Trust me, it's somewhere on the internet. FIND IT! LOL

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I've grown to like Jennifer very much. Smart businesswoman, hard worker, all around talent; singer, dancer, actress. She seems happy. She has it all right now. It takes a tough cookie to make it where she is.

  • Applebootay

    He’s like, ‘Keep your head in the game.’ All the time."

    That's cute to me.....Now.....

    Listen.....you shouldn't have to pressure any man to marry you at any point....1 day or 10 years...., HOWEVER, if that nig aint talking about putting a ring on it after about a year....or two....3 tops...especially at her age....its time to reevaluate the situation...its up to YOU......IJS

  • Applebootay

    You should probably not be at work or in any professional setting when you do....wait for your lunch break....IJS

  • Applebootay

    DaMMMMNNNNN! was she stabbing him with a fork?

  • Applebootay

    I mean, its all in his face, so he wasn't defending himself....

  • Trace da Ace

    yall think she dont want no ring....homegirl WANTS ring....and bad...dont believe the hype!!!

  • Applebootay

    I like her too, but so many people on here don't, so I didn't say nothing cause I'llI be dragged......LOL

  • Applebootay

    I'm going...I just got to work 12:55pm and now I'm about to go to lunch....Yup....no fuggs to give...anyTbody....

  • LurkerGuest

    Lol, same ? something about her ambition. Clearly she knows a thing or 2...to have "basic" talent; she's still a media queen. And i luv the Bronx Boriqua ?

  • Kita Williams

    Janet was also famous as a little girl while J-Lo was a little girl. it's possible for her to have those feelings lol

  • Ridingfinest

    Why should she pressure him for an engagement ring hasn't been married 3 times already?

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I remember a LONG time ago (when Elizabeth Taylor was still alive) that she was probably going to be like her. Be married & divorced countless times. She's getting there!

  • Applebootay

    @yoni7:disqus Yoni, Yoni, Yoni, Yoni, Yoni......Why in the Good Lord's Name do you have me watching this....On everything, I just Screamed to THEE top of my lungs...right at my desk (luckily most are on break)....I didn't even leave for lunch yet....OMG OMG OMG OMG....

  • Junkanoo

    Fair enough l use to sort of kind of like her but now she's all over the place l can't tolerate saturation shes not all that. Furthermore these stars get all the credit but their team run their business, come up with ideas , figure stuff out stars just provide their name many aren't that clever the team does the heavy lifting. Retire this trollop send her to the scrap yard she can be used for spare parts .

  • Junkanoo

    Speak your mind l dont want to live in a world where everyone shares the same opinion .

  • Junkanoo

    Well l think we've located all of Jlo's fans all lined up in a row . To each their own we cant help who we like l will try not to hold it against the three of you jk

  • Jussjess25

  • Mints

    Marriage is overrated. In the end, its just a business contract. Good for tax reasons but not much else

  • Yoni7

    SHE WAS ON 1000!!!! When I say I WAS WEAK ASF!! I hated to laugh because I don't like seeing US in that light. Then I didn't know if she had some mental issues going on. But the way she roasted that WHOLE PLANE......and SOON AS the cops came she talked mad shit...but she kept it movin'. I WAS ROLLLLINNNN!!!!

  • Strip Club Veteran

    She's not tired of getting married yet? She can't seem to keep a man. What's the point? Just be a Hollywood thot.

  • Strip Club Veteran

    As if 0-3 any better lol.

  • Honest

    She used her Keys on his evil racist ass.
