John Mayer Taking a Break from Dating

John Mayer has decided to take a little time off—not from music, but from the dating scene. The singer appeared on the Ellen Degeneres show yesterday and explained his unluckiness in love.

"I'm not dating. I don't know if you know this, but I have sort of a funny track record. Which is actually not that strange given my age. I'm a little freaked out right now about it, to be honest."

Adds Mayer, "I'm just going to let time pass and just do my thing."

We relieved John realizes he’s turned into a serial dater! In recent years, he’s been linked to Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Minka Kelly. All beautiful women, but all just a little too famous for him.

"For some reason, whoever I date has been famous for a while," he says. "I can't sit here and be like, 'Oh please, let me live my life in private with this famous person who's been around for 15 years.' I have to figure out what are the things that I ask for and sign up for, in terms of cause and effect. The last thing you want is to see me bashing my head going, 'I'm shocked that I'm being followed right now!'"

But John told Ellen that the ladies shouldn’t completely give up on him. "I have a good heart,” he said. “I think I may have gotten lost a couple of times, but so does everybody. I'm just going to hunker down. 2010 is a peaceful year for me, no matter what I do."

Who do you think John should settle down with?
