Selena Gomez Reveals Her Dating Requirements: "Please Make Me Laugh"

Selena Gomez is embracing the single life. During an appearance on "SiriusXM Hits 1 LA With Tony Fly and Symon" on Aug. 31, the 31-year-old singer opened up about her current relationship status and what she's looking for in a partner. "I think everybody goes through the phase of, 'Oh, it'd be nice to like have someone,' and I get that," Gomez said, per a video shared by Access Hollywood. "But you know, I'm just enjoying where I'm at and I just want to be happy with who I am so that whenever that person comes into my life, I can just have them add on to me instead of being this insecure, you know, person that I normally used to be."

When asked if she's high maintenance like she says in her new song, "Single Soon," Gomez responded, "I think I have standards. And I think I live in a world right now where boys confuse standards with high maintenance." She added, "The line was really fun because I'm not ashamed to say that I actually require X, Y, and Z for you to be with me. In a way, it was just meant to be for the attitude of the song and that's genuinely how I feel."

Of her dating requirements, Gomez said, "You gotta be cool, man. Not cool in the sense that people think you're cool. You just gotta be nice and like, please make me laugh and also just be good to my family and people around you."

Gomez rang in her 31st birthday on July 22, and according to her, she's "so enjoying" her 30s right now. "I feel lovely," she told hosts Symon and Fly. "I'm so grateful that people have listened to my journey and hopefully related to it and understood that I was just trying to show everybody that I wasn't in a good place but I just wanted freedom from all that negativity. And once I released it, it just feels so much better. I mean, I have new problems, but now I can figure them out on my own."
