The Canadian singer told the Kyle & Jackie O radio show in Australia that although he loves having a girlfriend, he's happy to be single for now, after a difficult end to a past relationship.
He didn't name the girl who broke his heart.
Biebs said: "I haven't been in a relationship for a while now. I'm chilling and just hanging out and just being by myself. I'm a relationship type of guy. I love to be in love and I love cuddling and I love all of that kind of stuff.
"But I got my heart broken and so I'm just going to let that heal up."
The 22-year-old then joked that perhaps he was talking to much because he'd had a "few beers" ahead of the interview. Oops.
Justin's most high profile relationship to date was with Selena Gomez, but he's been linked to a score of other celebrities over the past few months, including Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin.
He recently made his music comeback at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, performing his new song 'What Do You Mean?' It's the first single taken from his upcoming fourth studio album.
