"You want somebody that’s worth what you’re worth," he continues. "If they can embrace you for all that you are, then that’s the one."

Cannon, who began a whirlwind romance with Carey after meeting the singer on the set of her "Bye Bye" music video, also insists that no one should rush into a relationship. "I'm a true believer that everything has to start out as a friendship first," he explains. "Everybody that I was serious with, it always started with, ‘Yo, let’s just be cool’ and it ended up being something else."

Preach Nick, preach!!!
