During a conversation with E! News, Cheryl confessed that she has undergone changes and evolution, which has also affected her partner preferences. She said, “As I’ve changed, the characteristics of somebody I’d be interested in has changed. It’s about somebody who wants to grow and evolve because without it, life can be very stagnant and I’m not about to live that again.”
Cheryl has clarified that although she knows what she desires in a potential partner, she will not be actively looking for matches. “If the right guy comes along, so be it, but I am not searching. I’m not on a dating app, let’s put it that way.” she stated. She further added that she is not on any dating app at the moment.
She revealed to PEOPLE last month that she is not yet ready to dive into the dating pool actively. She stated that she is not keen on using dating apps and has sought the help of Patti ‘Millionaire Matchmaker’ Stanger to find a suitable partner. However, Cheryl made it clear that she is in no rush to find someone.
She further continued, and said, “I think I definitely have a lot of growing and evolving to do, and now. I have the time to really do that without the anxiety of a timeline. It couldn’t have happened at a better time, because I’m ready for it now.”
