While she isn’t in a rush to start dating again, Gomez hopes to find a partner who she can establish a “real” bond with.

Gomez is over being in ‘toxic’ relationships

After years of experiencing toxic romances and having her heart broken more than once, Gomez is now open to finding love again.

Following her eight year on-and-off-again relationship with Justin Bieber and experiencing a short-lived romance with The Weeknd, the singer has been taking a much-needed break from dating.

Instead of jumping right back into the dating scene, Gomez spent the last few years learning to love herself again.

Although she is continuing to focus on herself, the “Back To You” singer is now ready to try her hand at romance once again.

“I’ve been super, super single for two years and I want to know what that love will look like next for me,” the singer recently said during her recent interview on the Zach Sang Show. 

Gomez then goes on to admit that she’s looking to find someone she’s compatible with on all levels and not be in another lackluster relationship.

“I want it to be real and I don’t want it to be codependent or messy or lack of communication. When you get older you find people who are actually right for you, that are actually on the same wavelength.”

While Gomez confessed to her past relationships being “toxic,” she credits those romances for teaching valuable lessons about love.

“You’re in a phase of life where you experience love for the first time and I think that can just be a little toxic,” she said. “When you’re young you have this codependency that you think is love, and then you have this addiction to the passion and the frustration with each other and you think, ‘Oh that’s love.’ I believed that for a long time.”

Though she’s ready for love, Gomez is content with being single

After realizing that she wasn’t happy in her relationships, the singer decided to strictly focus on herself for the time being.

While her past breakups were hard to cope with at first, Gomez soon became conscious of the fact that being single wasn’t all that bad.

After calling it quits from Bieber for the third and final time in 2018, the singer learned to embrace the single life and just enjoy being by herself.

“I’m chillin right now, you guys,” she said. “Honestly that [dating] is so stressful so I’ve been having way too much fun being on my own. It sucked for the first year, I was like, ‘I just wanna cuddle, I just wanna watch something and be adored.’ Now it feels good. Now it feels awesome.”

Being single has taught her many life lessons and Gomez recently reflected upon them in her two new songs, “Lose You to Love Me” and “Look At Her Now”.

“Here’s the whole point of it, being able to say something on your own and being able to turn it into something that actually is beautiful,” she said. “For me, my intentions are never evil. I always want to come from a place that’s genuine. When I feel like some things haven’t been said then I get to turn that into art.”

While Gomez is looking forward to finding love again in the near future, she is happy just loving and being focused on herself for the time being!
