Zac Efron may not be dating Paris Jackson (despite trying to make amends for once breaking her heart) and didn鈥檛 quite manage to completely woo聽Simone Biles (despite the Olympian鈥檚 admitted crush), but hopefully the actor will have better luck in the love department now that he鈥檚 made a big decision about the kind of relationship he鈥檚 looking for. That鈥檚 because, now that the 29-year-old is nearing his 30s, he鈥檚 apparently ready to settle down. All he needs now is to find the right gal.

Zac Efron

Apparently unlucky in love, Efron has previously claimed that no one swiped right when he joined Tinder, and when it comes to dating, he has no hope at all. 鈥淒ating is something I鈥檒l never be able to do,鈥 he told The Times. 鈥淎s in the dictionary definition of dating, because one way or another I鈥檝e impacted that person鈥檚 life and they鈥檒l soon [realize] it.鈥 Um, okay.

But he seems to be feeling more optimistic these days, telling Cosmopolitan, 鈥淚 didn鈥檛 think much about settling down until recently. Now that I鈥檓 getting closer to my 30s, I鈥檓 around some great relationships and I鈥檝e seen expert couples at work. I鈥檓 realizing that you have to find your own happiness before you can make somebody else happy.鈥 Truth.

The only question now is: Is Zac Efron happy enough to make someone else happy?

When did you realize that you were ready to 鈥渟ettle down?鈥 Let us know @BritandCo!
