It ain’t easy being Ciara right now because the struggle to remain abstinent is really real.

Ciara dished to Cosmopolitan that abstaining from sex with beau Russell Wilson is a challenge.

“It’s going pretty good,” the singer said. We’re hanging in there. I’m not gonna lie. I’m human, so it is not easy, especially when I look at him and I think he is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen — that I’ve ever laid my eyes on, to be honest.”

The pair started dating last April, and their public claims of abstinence have been a hot topic ever since. Ciara and Russell both see their decision to wait as an opportunity for them to grow stronger.

“We get to have really healthy conversations and focus on each other as people. That is very important to me and him. It’s very valuable.”

For the “I Bet” singer, abstinence is all about staying strong and focusing on other aspects of the relationship. And it seems to be working. Ciara and Russell couldn’t look happier whenever they’re photographed together.

One of the keys to any successful relationship is figuring out what works for both people. Ciara and Russell have clearly done just that.
