LUCY Hale said that she feels “more single than ever” amid her romance rumors with The Bachelor alum Colton Underwood.
The Pretty Little Liars alum recently shut down the relationship rumors in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
Stating that she has remained single throughout the coronavirus pandemic, Lucy said: “If anything during this time it’s taught [me] — because I’ve done the whole thing basically alone and I used to hate being alone — I feel the only way I’m gonna date someone next is if they make my life better because I’m so happy right now having my own routine.”
The actress added that she’s “on a dating site now and I still never met up with any of them because I’m too nervous.”
Admitting that she doesn’t have a physical type, Lucy said: “I have a specific sense of humor.
“I physically do not have a type. I’ve dated everything cross the board.”
She continued: “There’s so many insecure men out there and I can’t do that. I’ve dated that. Don’t want that.
“Work ethic, drive, passion. I don’t care what you do, just love it. Do everything a hundred and ten percent. A good moral compass. Just a good person. It’s very simple what I’m looking for, but that’s hard. Simple qualities are harder to find.”
The 31-year-old actress concluded: “I’m not settling for anything less than what I’m looking for. Because why? Why would I?”
