Los Angeles: Singer-actress Selena Gomez says although she is a romantic at heart, she is not looking for a boyfriend right now.
Gomez, 20, ended her two-year-long relationship with singer Justin Bieber in January this year.
"I`m a big romantic and I want to be very open and trusting but you need to protect yourself. I`d love to have a great boyfriend but I`m not really looking for one," thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
Being a celebrity, one has to be very careful with relations, says Gomez, who will soon be seen in a daring role in movie ‘Spring Breakers’.
"It makes you more wary sometimes about meeting people because you don`t know whether they want to get close to you because of what you do or because they really like your company and just want to hang out with you," she said.
