Selena Gomez says she's always been interested in dating older men, but has been held back from doing so because of her own appearance.

She explains the situation in the January issue of InStyle UK.

“I feel like I look 16 sometimes, which is a bummer because I would love to date older guys,” Selena Gomez confesses. “It’s hard and I’m weirded out by the idea that a guy has Googled me before we meet, and that has happened.”

It seems Selena is once again dating a younger guy--Justin Bieber--but it's a bit uncertain as to whether they're romantically linked again or just dating to test the waters.

Justin serenaded Selena Gomez at a Beverly Hills lounge a couple of weekends ago, and they were spotted together again since then.

Whether Justin is back in her life or not, Selena Gomez also dished in her interview about former One Direction band mate Zayn Malik.

“If [Zayn Malik] had asked me out on a date, I would be seen with him. Just kidding, but not kidding,” she said.

Selena joked about her youthful appearance during a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last month.

“Now I know I look 16, but I’m 23,” she said when Cohen asked her if there was a romantic connection between her and David and Victoria Beckham’s 16-year-old son Brooklyn Beckham.

A day will come--a long while down the road--when Selena Gomez will be grateful for her youthful appearance. Younger looks will mean a longer existence for her in many Hollywood circles.

Justin Bieber seems quite taken with Selena no matter how old she looks. He has loved her for years, and is still obviously working hard to woo her back.

Will Selena Gomez venture out and meet an older man, or will she eventually realize her love for Justin Bieber just might be the real thing?
