Niall Horan once said that being one-fifth of a super famous boy band has kept him out of the dating game. But has the One Direction cutie changed his mind? Apparently he’s looking for a girl now- preferably an American one!

“I like someone that’s cute. Someone I can have a laugh with,” Niall said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “And I also like people that are American.”

Niall definitely wasn’t just joking with Ellen’s all-American audience. He’s flirted with singers Katy Perry and Demi Lovato, so he’s been interested in American girls before.

Do you think Niall will start dating an American girl sometime soon? Let us know in the comments and on Twitter!
