The Wanted boys keep up a bad boy rep (in boy-band land, that is), but Ariana Grande saw firsthand what a sweet gentleman Nathan Sykes can be!

In the February 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan, the 20-year-old singer dishes about her first date with Nathan and just how chivalrous and respectful the 20-year-old Brit was to her.

"We were going back to his hotel to watch a movie, and he had Ladurée macaroons and sunflowers waiting," she recalls, adding, "I love Parisian baked goods, and sunflowers are my favorite flower."

"He had taken the DVD player out of the bedroom and into the living room, because he said he didn't want to take me into the bedroom on the first date," she added. (Adorable, BTW.)

But hold the cuteness: Earlier this month, Ariana seemingly implied that she and Nathan had broken up, telling a Florida DJ he was "a little behind" when he asked her about her boyfriend. 

She added quickly that the pair are "really good friends," and otherwise declined to comment (as did her rep) on a possible split.

If the Sam & Cat star is in fact single, though, don't expect her to be going too crazy out on the prowl. "A lot of my friends are partiers, but I've never really clicked with that," she tells Cosmopolitan. "I like Barbra Streisand, and when was the last time you saw Babs getting, like, turnt up? That's kind of the road that I, as a lady, would like to go down."
