Gomez opened up about her "great" relationship with the singer in the September issue of InStyle.
"I really am [happy]. It's great," she said before qualifying, "I don't depend on one area of my life to make me happy. It's really important for me to love and nourish my friends and family and to make sure that I never get influenced by a guy."
"You want someone to add to your life, not to complete you, if that makes sense," the star explained. "I'm lucky because he's more of a best friend than anything else."
