KJ Apa has never had a girlfriend

He says he's just waiting for the right girl.

Kiwi Riverdale star KJ Apa has never had a girlfriend.

Apa, 20, opened up during an interview with Cosmopolitan discussing why he hasn’t had a girlfriend yet.

“I think I’m just waiting for the right time, right girl,” he said.

The former Shortland Street actor also has a pretty tight schedule.

“I’m pretty busy at the moment. I don’t know how much I have to offer to someone right now,” he said.


During another interview with Seventeen Apa admits he has dated.

“I was with my best friend and he was like, ‘Bro, look at that girl,’ and I looked over and she stopped me in my tracks,” he said.

“I said hi, introduced myself, I was talking to her for about 15 minutes and I asked if we could grab a coffee or something.”

KJ got her number and the two went on a couple of dates.

“It was really cool, really sick, had a great time,” he says.

“But didn’t really feel it.”

KJ Apa plays Archie on Riverdale.

Apa also said what he’d be doing if he wasn’t acting.

“I reckon if I wasn’t acting I’d either be playing rugby or just gigging at bars in New Zealand,” he says.

“Which I’d be happy to do.”
