John Mayer 'Freaked Out About Dating'

John Mayer is single, but he's not looking for love.

"I'm not dating," Mayer, 32, confessed on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." "I don't know if you know this, I have sort of a funny track record. Which is actually not that strange given my age... I'm a little freaked out about dating. So, I'm just going to let time pass and just do my thing."

The singer admits that dating other famous people automatically puts a spotlight on his relationship -- and that has taken a toll on his ability to maintain a romance.

"For some reason, whoever I date has been famous for awhile. 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," Mayer explains. "I have to figure out what are the things that I ask for and sign up for in terms of cause and effect."

John says that while his search for the perfect woman hasn't worked out as of yet, he wants to focus on staying "peaceful" through the next year.

"I have a good heart; I think I may have gotten lost a couple of times but so does everybody," Mayer says. "I'm just going to hunker down, 2010 is a peaceful year for me no matter what I do."
