Hannah Brown knows Bachelor Nation wants her to date "Bachelorette" runner-up Tyler Cameron, but she's not letting the pressure get to her.

In an interview with "Good Morning America," Brown said that right now, she's focused on figuring out what she wants.

If a man factors into that, great, but if not, she's not sweating it.

"I don't need a guy. I don't need Tyler, but I also don't need another man," she said. "I have feelings for Tyler and I had been interested in hanging out, but that doesn't mean I want to hang out with a bunch of other guys because I don't need a guy to make me happy. I'm happy with me."

Last week, audiences watched as Brown, 25, accepted a proposal from Nashville singer/songwriter Jed Wyatt, only to discover later that he'd hidden another relationship from her. She broke off the engagement, and after the episode aired, asked Cameron if he'd like to get a drink sometime.

Although she understands that fans are hoping something works out ("There's only like 14 billion Tannah fan pages!" she noted) but said she's hoping to keep "all my options open." Does that mean she might try online dating? "I can do whatever I want," she said.

"I am single," she continued. "I'm much more concerned about myself and filling my cup up and I don't know if bringing in a bunch of guys for me right now is gonna help me figure out what I want."

One thing she knows for sure: she's excited for "Bachelor in Paradise" to kick off Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT so that she can officially leave the spotlight.

"I'm glad people are supportive and interested in me but I'm excited for it to maybe settle down for a little while," she said. "And then maybe interested in me again, because hopefully I'll have more opportunities come up!"
