John Mayer reportedly wants to date Katy Perry again. It was recently revealed that the Roar hitmaker split from Orlando Bloom.

Mayer has been single since he broke up with Perry in 2015. A source told Hollywood Life: "John still has a huge thing for Katy. He's very happy that she and Orlando are done. This is what he's been waiting for. It's delicate because he doesn't want to pick the wrong moment and come on too strong, but he will swoop in. He's already plotting."

"John still talks about Katy and what an amazing woman she is. He can go on and on about their sex life and how much he misses it. He would love to get her back in bed, but there's more to it than that," the insider added.

In 2016, during an appearance on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live, the 39-year-old singer insisted he is ready for a new relationship. He said: "I'm ready to roll, I'm older and more mature than I've ever been and the stage is set."

Mayer added: "There's nobody on the stage, but I'm excited for a meet cute...because I feel ready...I'm very protective of that zone because I know how much I worked and how hard I worked to get that zone there. So I'm single and I'm excited about the future."

Meanwhile, after the break-up news broke out, Perry took to her Twitter account to reveal that she and Bloom are in good terms. She wrote: "HOW BOUT A NEW WAY OF THINKING FOR 2017⁉️U can still b friends & love ur former partners! No one's a victim or a villain, get a life y'all!"
