Fans have been let in on Selena Gomez’s love life in the past. And now, her friends are making sure that her admirers know that they are planning to set her up with a new guy. The Wolves singer has been single for the most of this year after her final breakup with Justin Bieber in March. The pair that has dated in the past as well got back together at the end of last year when Gomez broke up with The Weeknd.
After March, the diva has been entirely single, seen hanging out with pals. She’s also been super busy with her work engagements while ex Justin Bieber has coupled up with model Hailey Baldwin. The other ex Abel Tesfaye, who is also Canadian, has been cozying up with his once ex Bella Hadid. Confusing, yes? Well, Selena Gomez is out of this.
However, we wouldn’t be surprised if we get to hear about her dating rumors soon as her friends are in full mood to play matchmakers. A source told Entertainment Tonight, “Selena is such a catch, and her friends want her to be with someone who’s worthy of her. They really didn’t like Justin and her together. He didn’t appreciate what he had in her.”
That makes it more than one person who was not happy about the former Disney actress dating the Friends singer. Previously, Selena Gomez’s mother, Mandy Teefey, has been vocal about her disapproval of her daughter’s love affair with Justin Bieber. However, her friends do not want to pair her up with someone who is a celebrity perhaps because of the ugly past experiences that the songstress has had.
The source further added, “Her friends want to see her with someone who is not in the industry. She needs someone who’s talented and successful, but not a celebrity.” So, what does Gomez feel about being set up with a new man? Reports say that she is okay with being single for now and is embracing her singlehood. She doesn’t want to jump into matters.
“She’s not interested in dating anyone, she still doesn’t feel ready,” the insider went on to confirm. “She’s been in a relationship for so much of her life, she really is happy embracing the single life and focusing 100% on herself.” But that doesn’t mean that the dating doors are going to be closed for Gomez for long.
“She’s just incredibly focused on her career and well-being right now, but when the time is right, and for the right guy, she’s totally open to trusting her friends with setting her up,” said the source. After Gomez’s breakup with Bieber, her name was used with that of Jennifer Aniston’s ex’s. Some were of the view that Selena Gomez was getting close to Justin Theroux.
According to reports, she and Theroux didn’t develop their relationship into anything serious as Aniston was not happy about where they were going with it. Gomez backed off in her respect. Whether there was any truth to this news or if these were just rumors cannot be confirmed. Only the people involved know.
Here’s to hoping Selena Gomez finds the man she is looking for. Someone who is not only talented and successful but deserves her love as well. But it’s safe to assume that this time, her new boyfriend will not be someone who belongs to the entertainment industry. Also, from what the source said, we suppose Gomez will not be rushing into an engagement as is the celebrity love trend these days.
