“I have to say I’ve never tried finding love online,” Simpson – who in July split with longtime boyfriend, Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo – told PEOPLE Tuesday at the QVC Presents FFANY Shoes on Sale event in New York City, to benefit breast cancer research and education.
Whether it’s building a relationship by emailing, chatting online or utilizing dating networks, the singer, 29, says she has no problems with finding romance and long-term friendships with the click of a computer mouse.
“I mean, anybody who can find love online, so be it,” says Simpson. As for getting her own feet wet in the online dating pool, she says, “Maybe. Who knows?”
Until such time, Simpson says she has learned the true meaning of beauty and love inspired by the women of Morocco, whom she recently met while filming her upcoming docu-series, The Price of Beauty, in the African country.
“Morocco is extremely empowering, and the women there are incredible,” Simpson says. “There was nothing repressed about the women … they carry themselves completely confidant, sexy, all-knowing, while completely covered. It’s all about what’s inside of them, and they really studied themselves. To me that is what beauty is.”
She adds, “It’s not anything about what anybody else says about you that can define what is beautiful. It’s what you define as beautiful. And that to me is pure love and beauty.”
