Ciara Talks About Future During Happier Times

Ciara was most recently Brides magazine’s July cover girl and she gushed all about her man.

“Our label put us together,” Ciara said. “I went into the studio strictly to work, but he was very calm and sweet, a gentleman… I knew right away that he was different. Now he’s my best friend in the world, my partner.”

When we sat down with Ciara in August of 2013, she told us what made her relationship with Future so special:

“I’m a strong woman,” she told us. “I love, love. There’s nothing better than meeting a strong man to support you and who is about love too. I don’t want to put too much hype on it you know, but he’s an amazing person, he’s my best friend. I maybe thought I knew a little bit about love but I’m learning so much more by the day. But what I like about him, women are built, are in tune with their emotions, men they can be a little bit different with it. But I learn things from him and I like that.”
