Selena Gomez’s dating life

Gomez has been in the public eye since she was a kid which means that all of her dating has also been done in public. She and Justin Bieber met in 2009 but didn’t officially start dating until 2011. The couple then shared an intense romance that involved a lot of breaking up and making up.

Things ended officially when Bieber proposed to and married Hailey Baldwin.

What is Selena Gomez looking for in a new relationship?

Since completely closing her Bieber chapter, Gomez has gotten back on the market.

“Selena is open to finding love again but it’s not a huge focus for her, she’s not on the hunt. But she does have a wish list, she knows what she’s looking for,” a source recently told HollywoodLife.

Gomez has been taking her time finding someone.

“Obviously, she has to have that spark, but that’s only the first step. For her to get serious the guy is going to have to offer a lot more than that. She wants a real and mature love, a partner that she can connect with on every level, someone that’s not afraid to get really deep with her because when she loves, she goes all in. She wants a guy that’s very secure in himself and confident but NOT cocky, that’s a big turn off for her.”

Ultimately, she wants someone who can blend into her life with her friends and family.

“Her girlfriends are her family so she definitely wants a guy that’s going to understand how important they are to her and be cool with her having them be a big part of her life,” the source said. “She trusts their opinions more than anything so he’ll have to get their stamp of approval too.”

Is Selena Gomez dating Niall Horan?

Lately, Gomez has been spotted with former One Direction member Niall Horan.

He even went on The Social and spoke about his first time ever seeing Gomez.

“First time I seen was, she was on Barney,” he said. “She looked cute and she’s an absolute sweetheart, too. And she’s a really good friend right now.”

He also posted a picture of him standing in front of one of her ads to his Instagram stories with the caption, “Hello there Sel.”

So, obviously people have been wondering whether Gomez and Horan have become more than friends.

However, the singer recently went on Australian radio station 90.9 and revealed that he’s not dating anyone.

“Do I have a girlfriend?” he asked. “No, I don’t.”

“It doesn’t make a difference, if I am seeing someone or they’re just a friend of mine, I’m going out with them in the media’s eyes,” he continued. “That’s the most annoying part, isn’t it really? You can’t even be friends with a female.”
