The teenager isn't ready to get serious at 16

Justin Bieber just wants to have fun and hang out with his mates. For now.

Despite not being ready for a serious relationship, the teenage Canadian pop sensation does like to flirt.

‘Girls chased me before all of this and now more girls chase me…’ he says.

‘I am still in that process of learning not just about love but about everything in life – no rush, you know. 

‘I am trying to stay single. I’m not ready for the word ‘commitment’ or a relationship. I just want to explore for now.’

The 16-year-old, who’s been romantically linked to Spy Kids’ Selena Gomez and singer Jasmine Villegas, wouldn’t mind hooking up with a Cougar.

‘Age doesn’t matter. I’ll go out with anyone really if I fall for that special person,’ says Justin.

‘An ideal girl for me is someone who is funny. Someone who has nice eyes and a nice smile does it for me.’
