Harry Styles admits he 'hasn't dated in a long time' - but hints he still has options

The One Direction hunk claims his busy schedule has kept his bed rather cold at night – and even admitted his previous approach to dating was ‘wrong’ and ‘weird’.

It seems making his debut album and filming blockbuster movie Dunkirk with Oscar-nominated director, Christopher Nolan left Harry with little time to play up to his lothario status.

‘I haven’t dated in a long time really because I went away to do the movie then did the album so I haven’t in a while,’ the 23-year-old tells Nick Grimshaw on The Radio 1 Breakfast Show tomorrow morning.

Speaking of his previous dating techniques, he explained: ‘I used to (research dates), then I said I’m not going to do that anymore, it’s impossible to go in without a perception of someone and you’ve never met them and I started feeling like that was wrong and weird.’

But try not to feel too sorry for Harry, as he also hinted he still has some options available to him should he get too lonely.

‘I have a couple of candles left still though,’ he teased.

So just who are these ‘candles’ Harry is referring to? Could it mean he still has a very friendly relationship with one of his exes? Take a look at some of his previous relationships below.

Caroline Flack – December 2011

Perhaps his most controversial relationship due to their age gap – she was 32, he was 17 – Harry’s first public romance started at an X Factor wrap party in December 2011.

The leggy presenter fended off a lot of abuse surrounding their drastic age gap, saying at the time: ‘He’s really nice and we have a lot of fun together so what’s wrong with that?’

Taylor Swift – December 2012

Harry and newly-single Taylor went public with their full-blown romance in December 2012. They were virtually inseparable in the run up to Christmas but things quickly cooled off after their new year smooch in Times Square.

It’s said Taylor wrote her hit track I Knew You Were Trouble prior to their relationship, after briefly hooking up with him earlier in the year.

Kendall Jenner – 2013-2016

Harry and Kendall have kept everyone guessing about their romance for years – are they? aren’t they? – but we finally got a glimpse of hope when they were spotted kissing on a luxury yacht in St. Barts last year. It’s been quiet since though, with Kendall recently being linked to rapper ASAP Rocky, but as the pair are yet to make it official, is Kendall still holding out hope for Harry?
