Eminem covers Rolling Stone magazine, but isn’t 100% visible because of the shadow of his hoodie. That’s a shame, because I like looking into his angry eyes. In the issue he talks about trust issues with women:
I have trust issues. With women, friends, whatever. You always wonder what their real motives are. I’ve got a small circle of friends, and it’s a lot of the same friends I’ve known forever. Right now, that works for me. I came out of some difficult things these past couple of years. I kind of feel like I’m just now finding my footing. So I want to make sure that’s secure before I go out and do anything else. I need to keep working on myself for a while.
On whether or not he dates:
Not really. As far as going out, like dinner and a movie—I just can’t. Going out in public is just too crazy. I mean, I’d like to be in a relationship again someday. Who doesn’t? It’s just hard to meet new people, in my position.
Eminem strikes me as the type of guy that once he finds someone he can trust, he’ll make a good partner. But this is also contingent on him staying away from drugs and alcohol. He just needs to be loved unconditionally.
