Prince Harry knows that everyone is watching him, waiting for the lady who will steal his heart. Except, he's "massively" paranoid for said woman, and you're all making him a little crazy—so stop it, will ya?

Talking to the Sunday Times (via Us Weekly), the 31-year-old royal opened up about his love life, or lack thereof. "If or when I do find a girlfriend, I will do my ensure that me and her can get to the point where we're actually comfortable with each other before the massive invasion that is inevitably going to happen into her privacy," he says. "The other concern is that even if I talk to a girl, that person is then suddenly my wife, and people go knocking on her door." Cue the: 😁.

He previously dated (now) corporate lawyer Chelsy Davy on and off for seven years from 2004 to 2011, with rumors of a rekindled romance after she flew from South Africa to celebrate his most recent birthday. He also dated Cressida Bonas for two years before ending the romance in 2014. 

But while the public awaits (we totally get that paranoia thing, Harry), he says he's not in a rush.

"I'm not putting work before the idea of a family, marriage and all that kind of stuff," he explains. "To be fair, I haven't had that many opportunities to get out there and meet people. At the moment, my focus is very much on work. But if someone slips into my life then that's absolutely fantastic."
