Selena Gomez seems to be enjoying dating and single life, though she hasn’t ruled out a future reunion with her first love, Justin Bieber. During an interview in ELLE’s October issue, the “Good for You” singer had a chuckle when asked about getting back together.
“I don’t know,” she said.
There has often been speculation about the former couple, who dated on and off for three years before splitting at the end of 2014. In May they were shown having dinner together with friends in a Snapchat video, but Selena says that they are “genuinely” friends now.
“I’ll forever support him and love him in a way that… We grew up together. I think people want it to be different,” she said, insisting they were too young for more drama.
“Nobody was married,” Selena continued. “There was no… I respect him. And I think he respects me, in a healthy manner.”
For now Selena is happy to be single, telling the publication that although she has started dating again, she is not in a rush to meet anyone.
“Finding somebody is not my main focus,” she said. “I’ve dated people. I’ve been on a few dates, which is exciting.
“But I’ve never wanted to get into anything serious, because I kind of did that. I have my guard up. I like to meet people in organic settings. Hanging out with a group of people and meeting through mutual people”
Meanwhile Justin recently told an Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O that he “hasn’t been in a relationship for a while now”.
He added: “I’m a relationship type of guy. I love to be in love and I love cuddling, and I love all of that kind of stuff. But I got my heart broken and so I’m just trying to let that heal up.”
