Unlike his former bandmate Justin Timberlake, the 27-year-old singer is delighted he doesn't have a girlfriend to answer to and insists that his relationship-free time has helped him to mature.
Chasez admits, "I like being single because I don't have to answer to anybody. This is actually the longest I've ever been single. I've dated and stuff, but I haven't been in a full-blown relationship for two-and-a-half years.
"I've grown a lot on my own. I never really knew how to be single. It's better to be single now, at 27, than it was when I was 18. Now I feel like I've got my head on right."
