Looking for some summer love advice? You may just want to hear what Lea Michele has to say!

As many fans know, the Glee alumna couldn't be happier with boyfriend Matthew Paetz.

But for those still on the prowl for a special someone in these hot summer months, Michele may have a few tips.

"I think that the only way that anyone can really have a successful relationship is if they are totally okay on their own," she revealed to E! News. "For me, throughout my whole life, I've just really tried to grow and strengthen myself individually and become the most happy, healthy person on my own that I can become."

She continued, "And then whatever the universe brings into my life, it will."

Michele, who is a proud supporter of the #ActuallySheCan campaign that helps young women learn and share information with one another about healthcare, has plenty to be grateful for this summer.

In addition to spending time with her boyfriend, Michele is hard at work filming Scream Queens in New Orleans. While the TV show keeps her schedule busy, the 28-year-old makes it a priority to workout and focus on her health.

Luckily, her co-star and good friend Emma Roberts has been an excellent partner-in-crime.

"I'm in a total workout kick now," she explained to E! News. "Emma Roberts took me to a Pilates studio and I love it so much."

And while she wishes she could eat a lot more pizza, Michele knows she has to be careful.

"The reality is that food fuels you and you eat for energy. You want to eat carbs and pizza. That's like my favorite thing in the entire world but it does make you tired," she shared. "My food is my fuel. It helps me with my long hours at work so I try my best to eat as healthy as I can."
