Ariana Grande Single? Singer Says She 'Can't Get A Date'

Ariana Grande is admitting that she's having a hard time finding a man who's going to stick by her side. The 22-year-old singer says that her music and acting career have made it hard for her to date around.

The "Dangerous Woman" songstress was last linked to backup dancer Ricky Alvarez. Now in a new interview with Closer, via Digital Spy, Grande revealed that she has a hard time getting men to approach her.

"I think men approach me less now I'm famous, but then I hardly ever go out anymore! I'm not pretending I have great break-up advice. It's hard. It's nice to have someone that makes you happy, but it's nice to be happy on your own as well."
Ariana Grande was spotted with Ricky Alvarez back in March. The couple were rumored to be getting serious with each other, according to the Hollywood Life. Although they had no plans to rush down the aisle, Ariana and Ricky wouldn't mind being engaged, claims an insider.
"The relationship between the two is great. They really like spending all their available time with each other and they really get each other both emotionally and in the fun department. They just work. There hasn't been much of any talk of marriage. But nobody should take that as a bad thing, they just aren't ready to take that step. They really just love what it is right now, it is very easy to handle for them both."
It's understanding with Grande's busy work schedule that they have to be low-key at the moment. Still, the pair hasn't been photographed on social media for some time. The last time Grande posted about her boyfriend was on March 16, according to another Hollywood Life report. She shared a Snapchat photo of her and Alvarez along with the caption, "He has my heart."

They were caught making out after her successful Saturday Night Live hosting gig on March 12. Ariana was photographed kissing her boyfriend in front of everyone at an after-party at Biblioteca, according to TMZ. The outlet claims that Ariana never left her boyfriend's side. In one of the photos obtained by TMZ, Ariana is pictured with her arms around Ricky's neck as she kisses him on the lips. She also had a drink in one hand as he wrapped his arms around her waist.

The pair last looked in love after Ariana's performance at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards last month. Grande and Alvarez couldn't keep their eyes off each other when they got off a flight in Tokyo, Japan.

When it comes to making friends, Ariana says that she would much rather surround herself with her family or childhood friends than to build up her own A-list squad.

"I'm so lucky to be surrounded by amazing friends and family. I love having them around me. They keep it real and help me stay grounded. Family is everything to me, especially my nonna."
The pop star has been gearing up for new album, Dangerous Woman, which is set to drop on May 20. Grande has been releasing so many new songs that it's kind of hard to keep up. She just released a new track called "Sometimes" that's apparently a love song.In the acoustic song, Ariana is heard singing about someone who has her feeling a certain way.
"I used to be cautious/A little too reckless/Now all my emotions are all 'cause of you/I ain't even think of leaving sometimes/I ain't even think of letting go/I ain't ever thought of going nowhere."
According to the Hollywood Life, the song could be about her relationship with Ricky. Prior to dating the sexy dancer, Ariana was in an eighth-month long relationship with rapper Big Sean before calling it quits in April of 2015.
