Sparks continued later, saying, "What the relationship did teach me is what I like, what I don't like, what I'm willing to do and what I'm not willing to do."

And she added later, unclear over the reasoning for their split, "I'll never know what was true, what was not."

Sparks also sat down for an interview with The Breakfast Club's Angela Yee the night before for the BET original, #JordinGetsIntimate, that will air soon on BET.com.
She talked about Derulo there too, Madame Noire reports, saying the relationship and split taught her something:
"The infatuation stage can be so exciting. Everything goes out of your head that you say you're going to do. And instead you kind of just dive in…which is great because when it comes to love, sometimes you have to do that; but my biggest lesson for myself is: I need to slow that process down. Let's get to know each other first and then we'll decide if we want to dive in to make a commitment to one another or be boyfriend and girlfriend. And I have to take my biggest lessons and apply them to the now. I plan to go slower and I'm going to have to talk myself through things like, 'Jordin, remember what you did last time…just take it slow.' Also, I've learned to really evaluate why I'm attracted to that person. Is it really because they are going to complement me, not compliment like 'you look pretty,' but complement in the sense that is this person going to be like 'something came in and I think it's a great opportunity for you' or 'I saw a book you would like to read' or 'I see you really enjoy charity work, how can I get involved too?' To be more grounded on different things than just being cute."
