When Kendall Jenner loves someone, she goes all in.

The supermodel and Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 23, has notoriously kept private about her romantic life, but in a new interview for sister Kourtney Kardashian‘s new lifestyle website, Poosh, she revealed more than ever before.

In a conversation with Kardashian, Jenner compares falling in love with someone to how she felt when she discovered her two other passions: modeling and horseback riding. “With modeling it is the same feeling I had with riding where it is an undeniable feeling. I knew that I loved it so much. I can connect it with my love life,” the star explained.

When she meets someone, Jenner immediately knows if she will click with them. “I am very much someone who, I am love at first sight type of person,” she said. “I know I am gonna fall in love with you the second that I meet you.”

She added, “I have this overwhelming feeling. And that doesn’t happen a lot for me. I am not the kind of person who can gradually fall in love with someone. I don’t understand that. I’m a really straightforward person.”

Jenner confirmed she has been dating Philadelphia 76ers basketball star Ben Simmons, 22, during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in February.

“So obviously you’re dating this guy who’s on the 76ers,” Ellen DeGeneres said. “How long have you been dating him?”

With a huge smile on her face, Jenner replied, “For a bit now.”

However, despite remaining mum about the details of their relationship, the couple does flirt up a storm on social media. When Jenner shared a BTS look at a sexy swimsuit photo shoot for her collection Kendall + Kylie in January, Simmons left a steamy message for her in the comments.

“Come here…” he wrote to which Jenner replied with a racing car emoji — seemingly implying she’s on the way.

Simmons also left two drooling face emojis on a glamorous black-and-white photo the supermodel posted of herself on Dec. 26.

Before she started dating Simmons, Jenner was previously linked to Gigi and Bella Hadid‘s younger brother, Anwar Hadid.
