Justin Timberlake once has the nickname "Trousersnake" and judging by his past dating history - he certainly earned that kind of reputation. He has been linked to many A-listers in showbiz including Hollywood actresses, world-famous pop stars, super sultry models and of course, the odd back dancer or two. Fans can only dream of being able to date Justin, yet, for these women, that dream became an actual reality.
The notorious romancer told Glamour magazine, "There was a time when I had lots of affairs with women. I had to find out what I wanted. But basically, I prefer being in a relationship. But it's not very easy to have one - because I am under constant observation. The only solution to this is to keep mum about it."
He also joked, "I should not give anybody love advice."
It turns out that he hasn't been able to keep his past conquests as 'mum' as he would have liked and thanks to the internet, plus some very revealing interviews, it's easy to piece together his exact dating history. It's also safe to say that this is one man who deserves a high-five as he's had a pretty enviable run in his dating life.

We like a lot of the same things. Also, in the business, we’re all very career-oriented, and you have to be a little selfish. I understand that about my peers — about being focused and driven — and if you can find that and someone who shares the same values as you, it’s like Score!"
