London: `High School Musical` star Vanessa Hudgens is embracing life as a single woman after her break-up from long time boyfriend Zac Efron.
The 22-year-old actress was most recently linked to her `Beast` co-star Josh Hutcherson but Hudgens says she does not need a guy to be happy, Contactmusic reported.
"I`m really happy embracing this moment. Right now I feel so happy and I have so much going on, I don`t necessarily need a guy. Whether I`m single or not, this is an amazing time in my life. I`m a young woman and I`m exploring who I am," the star said.
Hudgens is keen to fall in love again but does not want to go on looking for `Mr Right`. She, however, has a list of what she wants in her dream man.
"Someone who doesn`t take himself too seriously, because I don`t! A guy who makes the best out of every situation, is positive and a good dancer, because I need someone who will dance with me," said Hudgens.
