They're trying to set her up these days. "Selena is such a catch, and her friends want her to be with someone who's worthy of her," a source told the outlet. "They really didn't like Justin and her together. He didn't appreciate what he had in her."
That someone they're trying to find for her is "not in the industry. She needs someone who's talented and successful, but not a celebrity," the source said.
Gomez's priority isn't dating right now, though. "She still doesn't feel ready," the source said, partly because she's focused on her career and partly because she wants to work on herself. "She's been in a relationship for so much of her life, she really is happy embracing the single life and focusing 100 per cent on herself."
Gomez is generally "much more cautious" with relationships these days and isn't about to rush into anything (so no summer rapid-fire engagement for Gomez). "She would love to be in a relationship in the future," the source stressed. "In fact, she knows that for a future relationship to be successful, she has to make sure she's the best version of herself first. She looks at relationships differently now — she isn't looking for someone to 'complete' her. But when the time is right, and for the right guy, she's totally open to trusting her friends with setting her up."
