John Mayer says he is taking a break from dating.
"I'm not dating," the singer, 32, says on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday. "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."
This past year, Mayer made headlines for his on-and-off romance with Jennifer Aniston. He has also romanced Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Minka Kelly, among others.
But he isn't complaining.
"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!'"
At the end of the day, Mayer insists, "I have a good heart. 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."
