The 'She Makes Me Wanna' singer says being single allows him to enjoy touring more.
JLS' Aston Merrygold has claimed that he and Olly Murs have both chosen to be single.
The pair's private lives are frequently subject to speculation, with Aston currently the only single member of JLS.
But the She Makes Me Wanna star said he wanted to remain by himself for now because it allows him to enjoy touring more.
He said: "I'm single out of choice, unless there is anyone interested? And I think Olly Murs is single out of choice too, he's just done an arena tour and that's full on!
"This is going to sound so bad and don't mean any disrespect to people in relationships but right now I want to experience everything.
"When I'm on tour I want to get the whole tour vibe, I want to get the whole backstage vibe I don't want to be on the phone to a girlfriend."
He added: "I want to be with the boys, with my dancers with the security team, with management all of it.
"This could all go tomorrow and I don't want to be sitting there on the phone talking about how was your day for two hours."
JLS are currently gearing up for their forthcoming UK arena tour, '4th Dimension', which kicks off later this month.
