Mollie King of The Saturdays Won't Have a One Night Stand

"I've never had a one night stand or sex on the first date, and I don't think I ever would," the music artist tells British Cosmopolitan in its March issue.
"It's important for a guy to know and understand me before he can even think about taking things to the next step," King, 25, continues.
Already a star in the U.K., the singer and her bandmates are making a splash stateside thanks to their new E! reality show, Chasing the Saturdays.
And King has no qualms about being real – or candid – about her life off-camera, as well.
"I'm enjoying being single," she tells Cosmo, "and I'm definitely not gagging to be in another relationship. When I go out, I'm not going out to find a man; I'm going out to dance the night away with my best friends."
But if she were looking for a guy, he'd need to possess a sense of humor.
"The most attractive thing in a man is the ability to make me laugh," King says. "He has to be spontaneous, fun and able to banter – it's not a job interview, it's a date! I like day dates, and I like throwing the ball in his court."
