THIS Is Why John Mayer Took A Step Back From Dating


John Mayer, the Grammy-winning musician known for hit songs like “Gravity” and “Your Body Is a Wonderland,” has had a well-documented dating history with several famous women including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift, and Katy Perry. His last serious relationship was with Katy Perry, which ended in 2015.

In recent years, Mayer’s dating life has become more low-key, and he hasn’t been in the headlines with a famous new partner. This shift is attributed to a major change in his personal life — his decision to become sober in 2016. Mayer shared that a particularly intense hangover after attending Drake’s 30th birthday party prompted him to reevaluate his lifestyle. He realized he wanted to reach his full potential, which he felt wasn’t possible while drinking, leading him to quit alcohol.

Since becoming sober, Mayer has changed his approach to dating. He mentioned in an interview on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast that dating is no longer a formalized activity for him. Sobriety has shifted his perspective, and he no longer approaches relationships with the intention of them being short-term. Mayer has always sought the potential for a long-term commitment in his relationships.


Furthermore, Mayer has expressed a desire for marriage and family. He stated that finding “The One” and settling down is a top priority for him. During an interview in 2021, Mayer shared that having a wife and children would be the final piece to complete his life’s journey. Despite his current dating pause, Mayer’s aspiration for marriage remains strong.
