AceShowbiz - Selena Gomez has adopted a "natural, organic" approach to dating, so she can weed out any potential suitors solely interested in her fame.
The 27-year-old singer was being interviewed on Britain's Capital FM when she was surprised by a pre-recorded message from Jason Derulo, asking for tips on the world of dating.
"So what is your best advice to a man coming up to meet a woman for the first time?" he asked in his message. "How do you like to be approached? What's the best approach a man can give?"
Admitting she'd "never really been asked this question before," Selena thought hard before answering, and revealed she is a fan of being introduced to potential boyfriends by her closest pals.
"I like group situations. So, I find that that's what makes me comfortable. If they're someone maybe I know of someone I know," she said.
Insisting one of the most important things is that a man is "genuine," Selena added, "I feel like in the first five seconds, I can tell if I'm meeting someone that just wants one thing. And then I can tell when it's a good group of guys and they're cool. I love funny. I don't like arrogant. I don't like show off-y. I love playful and adventurous, but really down to earth and cool."
As for how she manages with people who are just interested in dating a celebrity, Selena explained, "I tend to like to be approached in a natural, organic way. And I hope that whoever is doing that is actually interested in me and not really my name. So, it's pretty hard, but that's usually the best way."
