The One Direction singer told Female First that he hopes he meets somebody who possesses a good sense of humour.
"I like someone who is fun, someone funny, someone you can have a conversation with," he is quoted as saying.
Styles has this week been romantically linked to 24-year-old Irish photographer Sarah-Louise Colivet.
The 18-year-old recently denied that he had been dating 19-year-old singer Lily Halpern.
The 'What Makes You Beautiful' singer had a brief relationship with 32-year-old Xtra Factor presenter Caroline Flack at the end of last year.
