Emma Watson has learned to "quality control" people around her
The `Harry Potter` actress - who is currently dating student Will Adamowicz - approaches her relationships differently as she grows older, and wishes she had done the same in her formative years.
She told Britain`s Glamour magazine: "I wish someone had told me at 15, `You accept the love that you think you deserve.` I would have approached my relationships completely differently if they had. I like this idea of quality control - that we don`t have to accept just anyone into our lives.
"People talk about love as though it just happens to you - as though you`re a victim in it all, when actually you can make good choices and bad. But women have a natural tendency to want to nurture and take care of men. I tend to date people who are quite introspective. I like deep thinkers."
Emma has had trouble with friends in recent years, struggling to find a sold group when she first went to the US to study at Brown University in 2009.
She said recently: "My first two years at Brown weren`t easy, not because I was bullied or because anyone gave me a particularly hard time, but just because, you know, without the collegiate system . . . and at Brown everyone does completely different things and very much chooses their own path, which is great, but it`s also much more difficult, too. You`re not with a group of people all the time at one time."
