The former N*SYNC singer, who came out as gay in 2006, told The Daily Beast that while he has been a "serial dater" in the past, he looks forward to meeting the right man and settling down.
"I definitely want that. I'm a Southerner. We dream of having the family and the kids, and the parents want grandkids, that's all they care about, give me some grandbabies," Bass explained.
"I'm a serial dater. When I see someone I like, we go on multiple dates. In my older age, I've learned to take things slower, because I used to be that total-fall-in-love-after-a-day guy."
However, Bass said that he is more reserved about expressing his feelings these days, adding: "I've learned, you can have those feelings, but you don't have to show that. Then you don't have to worry about them saying, 'He was my boyfriend'."
He has previously claimed that he is a "hopeless romantic" and likes making small gestures in relationships.
