"I'm like, 'A business meeting about what?' We wouldn't be having a meeting about business. And then it was just the first time we'd hung out only on our own, and not with other friends and stuff like that. So that was a very natural way. I think that's how people would normally meet each other, like, in real life."

Asked if Rich is getting a "different Adele" than others have gotten, the singer replied: "Yeah, but I mean, by arriving and turning up. You know, maybe I'm getting a different version of him and who knows?

"It's just, it's just timing. It's just timing, but it'll be interesting to see what my reaction is like in general to anything that hurts me now that I feel so secure in myself."

Adele has been dating sports agent Rich Paul since summer

Both Adele and Rich met on a dance floor at a mutual friend's birthday party years ago. Although Adele doesn't remember which song they danced to, she recently confessed that it might have been something by her close friend Drake.

"I was like, 'You should play something else. I love Drake. But you should play something else,'" she recalled to Rolling Stone last week.

When news of their relationship broke, the star admitted not many of her close ones knew about it. "I didn't really tell many of my friends at the beginning because I wanted to keep it to myself," she added. "None of them believed it!"
