The 22-year-old actress - who split from her `High School Musical` co-star Zac Efron in December after dating him for five years and has most recently been linked to Josh Hutcherson - doesn`t "need a guy" to be happy and is enjoying discovering more about herself.
When asked if she is looking for a relationship, she said: "No, I`m really happy embracing this moment. Right now I feel so happy and I have so much going on, I don`t necessarily need a guy.
"Whether I`m single or not, this is an amazing time in my life. I`m a young woman and I`m exploring who I am."
However, the `Beastly` star would like to fall in love again - but thinks it is more likely to happen if she doesn`t try to find her `Mr. Right`.
In an interview with LOOK magazine, she said: "Love comes when you`re not looking, so I`ve decided I`m not going to look!"
When the pretty brunette does find another man, she hopes he`ll have a good sense of humour and will be happy to join her on the dancefloor.
Describing her dream boyfriend, she said: "Someone who doesn`t take himself too seriously, because I don`t! A guy who makes the best out of every situation, is positive and a good dancer, because I need someone who will dance with me."
