Rihanna is "open to love".
The 'California King Bed' hitmaker explained while she is ready for romance, she wants a man to "earn" her affections because she is well aware they enjoy the chase in a new relationship.
She said: "I'm open to love. But guys should have to earn it. Because the minute they get it, they want something else.
"Men are like hunters; they like the chase. So you have to keep 'em guessing. Actually, I'm like that too. I get bored quickly. So if someone can make me laugh, that's the best."
Despite her willingness to find love, the 23-year-old singer - who was assaulted by her then-boyfriend Chris Brown in 2009 - admitted she finds it difficult to express her softer side.
In an interview with Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine, she explained: "For me, it's tougher to be vulnerable than to be tough."
However, Rihanna conceded she can be an "intimidating" prospect for men.
She added: "It can definitely be intimidating to guys to date someone in this industry. And it's really hard to find a guy who doesn't care about that stuff.
"Right now, it's easier just having my career to focus on."
