Nick Carter would happily date a fan.
The Backstreet Boys star - who previously had a high-profile relationship with Paris Hilton - insists he is willing to date girls from different backgrounds, as long as they challenge him mentally.
He said: "I've dated fans, friends, celebrities, business associates, everyone - I don't discriminate. People do what they do and it doesn't matter to me. I don't rule out the possibility of dating someone because of what they do or who they are.
"I want a nice person who has a spark that intrigued me intellectually."
However, Nick has ruled himself out of getting involved in another celebrity romance, and believes he has matured since splitting from Paris.
He added: "I don't know if I'd have another high-profile relationship, I've grown up a lot since Paris. It would have to be with a person who was really grounded and mature and was over that whole playing-around stage."
Nick also admits he isn't sure if he will ever feel ready to settle down and start a family.
He told Britain's OK! magazine: "I haven't thought about fatherhood. I'm thinking about myself and I'm not the marrying kind. I'm not saying I wouldn't change my mind, but if I did I'd run away and do it in secret so no one would ever know.
"I'm energetic and youthful and it's exciting. I'm not ready to settle just yet."
