Selena Gomez was making some big life plans before meeting her boyfriend. “I was alone for five years, and I got really used to it,” she said in a new interview.  “A lot of people are afraid of being alone, and I probably tortured myself in my head for like two years being alone, and then I kind of accepted it. Then I came up with my plan, which was, I was going to adopt at 35 if I had not met anyone.” But then she met Benny Blanco and an organic romance began.
