The 21-year-old split from boyfriend TJ in February and plans for him to join the TOWIE cast were scrapped.
Faiers told the Daily Star that the new series of the ITV2 reality show will focus less on the cast's love life.
"I'm still single. The last couple of series of TOWIE have been based around relationships, break-ups and stuff like that. But in the new series they are not playing on that so much. We are not under pressure to be in a relationship," she said.
"I'm not looking for a relationship. Obviously I'll date on the show and have fun but I don't want a boyfriend. I've only been single for a while. I don't fancy Diags (James Bennewith) and Ricky (Rayment) had five girls jump on him as soon as he arrived and I'm not into that.
"Ricky came on the show and he had baggage within two days, so I'm not getting involved. Everyone warned me not to go back to Mark (Wright) but I'm never going to do that. That door has closed."
The Only Way Is Essex returns to ITV2 for a fifth series at 10pm on Sunday night (April 15).
