Justin Bieber stopped Selena Gomez from "playing games"
The 19-year-old star - who has been dating the `Baby` hitmaker since December 2010 - admitted while she used to toy with people`s emotions in the past, she has come to realise that such behaviour is "silly".
She said: "I`ve played games in the past, but now I`ve finally met someone who makes me not play games. If you`re playing games, you need to ask yourself if that person is really for you. Games are silly."
The `Wizards of Waverley Place` actress now thinks the best relationships are based on "compassion and honesty", and believes being yourself is the key to success.
Selena explained to TOTP magazine: "I`ve conformed to a lot of guys that I liked before; it`s very easy to want to be what they want you to be. But in the end, it just wasn`t enjoyable - I was miserable half the time. The best person you can be with is someone you can be yourself with."
Despite their fame, Selena recently insisted she and Justin have a very normal relationship.
She said: "I`m just like every 19-year-old girl. If you`re in love, you`re in love to the fullest, and you just want to go to the movies, hang out, and be as normal as possible.
"I`m fortunate that I`ve found someone who has that philosophy."
