Harry Styles is setting the record straight about rumors surrounding his love life and his best trait (hint: it's a body part).

During a two-hour-long interview with BBC Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw–recorded ahead of Friday's release of his first solo single "Sign of the Times"—the generally private star got real about life post-One Direction.

The 23-year-old heartthrob, whose superstar exes include Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner, revealed that he hasn't dated anyone "in a long time" due to the busy schedule surrounding his shooting schedule with his film Dunkirk and recording his album. The Brit went on to share that he gets "starstruck easily" and has no problems dating in the public eye and even let it slip that he has looked up info about dates ahead of meeting them. "I used to [research dates]," he told Grimshaw. "Then I said I'm not going to do that anymore. It's impossible to go in without a perception of someone and you've never met them and I started feeling like that was wrong and weird."

As for what it's like to date the former boybander, the Brit admitted that his reputation as a bit of a bad boy who lives in the moment is without merit. "I think I snore and also I quite like routine, so I don't know if I'm incredibly spontaneous," he said.

And while most of us may lust over Harry's long locks, the "Story of My Life" singer has a different idea of his best physical feature. "Best trait, I don’t know, it’s weird to pick your best—shall we go with the nipples thing?” he said, referring to his four nipples.

Along with dishing on the advice he got from Adele and Ed Sheeran ("I played [Ed] a few songs after the album was finished," he dished. "He didn't say that he didn't like any but he did like one song that isn't on the album."), Styles discussed other stars and answered questions submitted by Rita Ora, Chris Martin, and even his own mother during the conversation.
