Why Selena Gomez says she’ll never try Tinder

Selena Gomez is having a fabulous time living the single life. She’s been hard at work on her upcoming album, Revival. She’s been on the ‘Bad Blood’ award show circuit with her BFF Taylor Swift. Basically, she’s been taking plenty of time to do her own thing.

Of course, Selena is famous for her on again, off again relationship with Justin Bieber, but their status is officially off again. To someone who was already in a relationship when Tinder took off, it can be jarring to suddenly find yourself single, because the app has totally transformed the dating landscape. Selena is back in the game, but she’s opting for a more traditional route to romance, so don’t expect to see the singer swiping left or right any time soon.

“I would never go on Tinder!” she told Flare magazine. “I think it would scare me. I go on dates. It’s not that difficult—I’m a nice young lady—but that’s not my focus.”

We feel you, Selena. Tinder just isn’t for everybody. Sometimes, it can feel like Tinder is your only dating option, because everybody’s doing it. But it isn’t! We think it’s totally rad that she doesn’t feel the need to give in to the pressure. Not that there’s ANYTHING wrong with having a total blast on Tinder or any other dating site.

Though Selena isn’t on Tinder, celebrities are known to use it—including Hilary Duff. Back in July, the dating app rolled out a new feature called Verified Profiles. If you see a profile with a blue checkmark, you’ll know they’re for real, just like on Twitter and Instagram.

“I’m really stoked about being with myself right now,” Selena reasons.

And we’re pretty stoked for you, girl!
