The 23-year-old singer-actress graces the cover of InStyle UK's January issue
, and in the tell-all interview with the magazine, she gets candid about her dating life, including her on-again, off-again relationship with Justin Bieber
"It's really hard because I'm a nice person. I'm just tired of talking about it," she says of her highly-publicized romance with the 21-year-old "Sorry" singer
Despite the fact that Bieber was spotted serenading his former love
in Beverly Hills, California, earlier this month, the two have yet to confirm whether or not they're officially a couple again.
Another pop singer she's been linked to is former One Direction member Zayn Malik
"If he had asked me out on a date, I would be seen with him," she tells the magazine, setting the record straight on their rumored romance. "Just kidding, but not kidding."
Gomez also says that getting back into the dating game isn't something she finds particularly enjoyable.
"I hate it. It's hard," she admits. "I'm weirded out by the idea that a guy has Googled me before we meet, and that has happened."
"I feel like I look 16 sometimes, which is a bummer, because I would love to date older guys," she adds.
While dating may not be her cup of tea, there's one person she can always turn to when she needs advice on anything, including guys: her close friend and fellow pop star, Taylor Swift
"People have this fantasy that we're in our underwear, having pillow fights," she explains. "We just play good music -- sometimes live -- and eat, and hang out."
"I'll be like, 'I think I totally screwed up,'" she adds, "but Taylor says, 'actually, you didn't' and shows me how to make my mistakes into something great."
While Gomez may be looking to date older men, she can't seem to get away from guys her own age. ET caught up with pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer
on the red carpet at the American Music Awards earlier this month, where lead signer Luke Hemmings gushed over his crush on the former Disney star.
