Katy Perry is ready to walk down the aisle. With someone.

“I’d like to get married if I find that ‘one’ everyone talks about,” she tells the June issue of UK Cosmopolitan. “I’m not in a rush, but last night I was thinking, ‘Is it wrong for me to want to marry soon and have that feeling?'”

“And I wonder when that person is going to present himself to me. To me, marriage isn’t about bank accounts and houses; it’s about finding the one you can hitch your hip to and build on each other’s strengths,” she goes on.

The singer, who split from Gym Class Heroes’ Travis McCoy last January, but supposedly got back together with him recently, tells Cosmo she’s currently single.

She adds that she doesn’t like it that way.

“I don’t like being single, no. I live a fantastic life, but at the end of the day all I want to do is pick up my phone and share it with someone,” she says.

“The other day I’d sold a million records in the U.S. and I didn’t have anyone to tell. It was actually a really lonely moment.”

Being famous has made it harder to find romance as well.

“If I go out to dinner with a guy, people automatically think we’re dating,” Katy Perry added. “And then when you do start dating, it becomes a race to the altar. I’m like, ‘Come on, can’t we just be boyfriend and girlfriend?'”

Her ideal guy?

“Firstly, he has to be stronger than I am mentally. He can’t be jealous because I’m a very touchy-feely person. And he’d need to be able to tell me both yes and no. I’ll probably end up with someone who’s a bit older, a few steps ahead of me.”
