What does Rob Kardashian want for Christmas? A girlfriend? Not so fast, he says, just time with family will do.
“I mean, I want a girlfriend. I’ve been single for a while, but I’m 24 years old and I feel like I have a lot of work to do on myself first and that’s really what I’ve been focusing on. I’m focusing on my health and getting into shape and my career,” he tells PEOPLE at the Daughtry concert for the Duracell Holiday Insurance Program in New York on Wednesday. “I like being single right now.”
With the holidays approaching, getting into shape may prove difficult if he plans to feast on his mom’s and sisters’ dishes. “They make great eggs and my mom makes awesome French toast – a whole big buffet,” Rob says.
