Former 'N Sync hunk Jc Chasez has disappointed his female fans by boasting he has been single for nearly three years and has no plans to change that.

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."

The GIRLFRIEND singer once dated AMERICAN PIE star Tara Reid.
