Listen up fellas, "Call Me Maybe" singer Carly Rae Jepsen says she only gives out her phone number to men who are assertive.

"I really like guys who have confidence, but not the cocky over-the-top confidence," Jepsen, 26, told PEOPLE at the U.S. Open's annual Arthur Ashe Kids Day on Saturday in Queens, N.Y. "Guys with the right type of confidence are really sexy."

One man with the right amount of self-assurance and charm seems to be singer-songwriter Matthew Koma, 25, whom Jepsen recently started dating. When asked about her new beau, she coyly said, "He's a really great guy and really talented."





When Jepsen – whose U.S. album debut, Kiss, drops Sept. 18 – is not singing about crushes and love at first sight, she enjoys going on romantic dates that are "fun and easy going."

"I love to go on spontaneous dates and do things that we've never tried before or stay at home and make a homemade dinner," says the Canadian star. "I really like to cook. One of my favorite things to make is homemade sushi. I know how to make the rolls and it's really fun to do."
