The young actress has been linked to Bieber since last year and they went public with their relationship in February when they posed for pictures together at a post-Academy Awards bash.
Gomez admits dating Bieber has its perks, but remaining coy in public can be frustrating for a teenager just looking for love. She tells Seventeen magazine, "I don't like hiding. I do like to keep certain things to myself, but, at the end of the day, I'm 18 and I'm going to fall in love. I'm going to hang out with people and I'm going to explore myself, and I'm OK with that."
