Camilla Cabello doesn't mind being a single senoritã.

Since her breakup with Shawn Mendes last fall, the "Bam Bam" singer says she isn't too concerned with finding a new boyfriend.

"I don't put a lot of focus on it," she told Cosmopolitan U.K. in a profile published July 7. "I just really want to hang out with people, I want to make friends, and I've made a lot of great friends over the past year. If something happens, then that's really fun, but I don't put any pressure on it."

It's a new mindset for the 25-year-old, who admitted she used to prioritize being in a romantic relationship.

"Before I used to be like, ‘Yes, love, oh my God, love,' and now I'm just trying to have a good time," she continued. "I just want to live my life and have great friendships."

She added, "If something comes out of [them] that's something more, then that's great."

Camila Cabello's Best Looks

While Camila may not be explicitly looking for "the one," she certainly isn't hurting for company. Last month, the former Fifth Harmony member was spotted sharing a laugh with Lox Club CEO Austin Kevitch during a night out in Los Angeles. In a photo obtained by E! News, Camila⁠ was all-smiles as she joined the tech entrepreneur for an evening walk.

In November 2021, Camilla and Shawn ended their two-year relationship, vowing to "continue to be best friends" in a joint Instagram statement. Five months later, she shared some insight into their amicable breakup and noted that shifting priorities was a reason why they decided to part ways. 

"I guess my focus is really on, 'How can I be a well-rounded person?'" Camila explained to Apple Music 1's Zane Lowe. "And I feel like that was that way for both of us. Because we both started so young too, it's like we're really learning how to be healthy adults. And that sometimes means not having your number one focus be your career."
