Loving herself first! Selena Gomez has been open about her past relationship experiences since stepping foot into the public eye.

In October 2021, fans started to speculate that the Disney Channel alum might be dating her longtime celebrity crush, Chris Evans. The rumored pair has not publicly spoken about their respective dating lives, but eagle-eyed fans on social media have broken down tons of clues alleging something romantic between the actors. For example, both Selena and Chris appeared to be photographed leaving the same restaurant, but the photos were later debunked. Others noticed the Marvel alum had started following Selena on Instagram.

After being involved in a few public relationships over the years, the songstress has kept things mum about her dating life. In March 2021, the actress clarified that she’s “not involved with anyone right now” after romance rumors started swirling between her and Only Murders In the Building costar Aaron Dominguez.

“We had just started working together,” she told the Los Angeles Times at the time. “I honestly thought, ‘No wonder guys don’t want to date me!’ I think people only care because I’m young, and the older I get the less they’ll care. For now it’s a part of the job that I don’t really like.”

When looking back at her experience in the dating world, Selena explained during an interview with Vogue Australia in June 2021 that, over the years, she’s felt like “most of my experiences in relationships have been cursed.”

“I’ve been way too young to be exposed to certain things when I was in relationships,” the actress added. “I guess I needed to find what was [rare] for me, because I felt so less than in past relationships, and never really felt equal.”

Fans first started to wonder if had a new man in her life after she appeared to be flirting with someone during an August 2020 episode of her HBO Max cooking show, Selena + Chef. During one segment of the series, the actress received a mysterious FaceTime call from an unknown person.

“Hey, I’m going to have to call you back, I’m cooking. Alright bye,” she could be heard saying to the secret person on the other end of the phone. After she hung up, the former Disney star turned to the camera and said, “Sorry! Cute boy,” while laughing and smiling.

The “Bad Liar” songstress hasn’t been romantically linked to anyone since May 2018, when she and Justin Bieber called it quits. She even deleted the last trace of the “Love Yourself” crooner from her Instagram account in June 2019. She’s also been linked to Taylor Lautner, Niall Horan, Charlie Puth and Nick Jonas, among others. Scroll through our gallery for a breakdown of Selena’s love life.
