“I’m Not Chas­ing A Re­la­tion­ship!”

Have you ever felt like all of your friends are dat­ing, while you’re com­pletely sin­gle? If it seems like you’re the only per­son on the planet with­out a boyfriend or girl­friend, trust us, you’re not alone. Though they may not be flaunt­ing their sin­gle sta­tus, tons of peo­ple feel the ex­act same way you do — in­clud­ing Shawn Men­des. “I’m not cur­rently dat­ing any­one, so, of course, some­times when I see all those other artists and peo­ple in re­la­tion­ships, I think, ‘Maybe it would be nice; who would be great for me?’” he opens up.

I’M NOT SUP­POSED TO BE WITH ANY­ONE RIGHT NOW.

While Shawn ad­mits that those re­la­tion­ship thoughts pop into his mind from time to time, he’s try­ing not to let the fact that he’s sin­gle get him down as much as it once did. In­stead of try­ing to force a re­la­tion­ship, he says that be­liev­ing that when the tim­ing is right, fate will in­ter­vene, has re­ally helped change his out­look on dat­ing. “I just started to think: ‘This is wrong. Let it be. I’m not sup­posed to be with any­one right now,’” he re­calls. “Since then, those kinds of thoughts haven’t stum­bled

across

me and I haven’t been chas­ing a re­la­tion­ship.”

I’LL JUST WRITE A MIL­LION LOVE SONGS.

Un­til he finds his per­fect match, Shawn says he’s fine with day­dream­ing about it and imag­in­ing what that per­son will be like. It turns out, it just might be you! “I could date a fan,” he sug­gests. “Why wouldn’t I date some­one who ad­mires me? Isn’t that what cou­ples al­ways say? ‘She’s my big­gest fan.’ I mean, I’m just a reg­u­lar dude.” And what is it that Shawn hopes to find in his fu­ture soul­mate? “I re­ally like funny girls — girls with a witty sense of hu­mor,” he re­veals. “If some­one is able to catch onto what I’m say­ing very quickly, I find that very at­trac­tive.”

In the mean­time, Shawn says he’ll fo­cus on some­thing else he can give his whole heart to: his mu­sic. “I think love is the most pow­er­ful feel­ing a hu­man can ex­pe­ri­ence, so I feel like I can write a mil­lion songs about it,” he ex­plains. And there’s no bet­ter feel­ing than shar­ing what he’s writ­ten with the world. “I want to push my­self to my limit of what I can han­dle and play as many shows and write as many songs as I can right now and fly around the world 10,000 times,” he ad­mits. “I just want to take life as it comes in­stead of wor­ry­ing about things.” That’s a great men­tal­ity to have!
