Amy Schumer: Love is scary

Amy Schumer thinks being in love is the "scariest thing in the world".

The 'Inside Amy Schumer' star has been dating furniture designer Ben Hanisch for several months and though they are very happy together, she is constantly worried he is going to end their relationship.

She said: "Being in love is the scariest thing in the world. You want to f***ing cry and scream. I can't handle it. Every time we say goodbye, I think, 'This will have been a nice last week together.' Or I tell myself nothing is real and he's going to leave me and tell me he never loved me.

"I feel so bad for him. How exhausting it must be dating me."

Though the 35-year-old star has been in other relationships before, Ben is the first guy she has considered to be her boyfriend.

She told the new issue of America's Marie Claire magazine: "I feel like Ben is the first guy who's really been my boyfriend. There are guys who, if they heard me say that, would want to punch me in the face, but yeah, it's the truth."

The 'Trainwreck' star admitted losing her virginity was not a "good" experience.

She said: "My first sexual experience was not a good one. I didn't think about it until I started reading my journal again. When it happened, I wrote about it almost like a throwaway. It was like, And then I looked down and realised he was inside of me. He was saying, 'I'm so sorry' and 'I can't believe I did this.' "

Amy has always wanted to feel different to her peers.

She said: "I was always self-effacing, self-reflective. I hated feeling I was just like every other girl on Long Island. Looking at my clothes and my hair. I was very aware of not wanting to be the same as everyone."
