Drew Barrymore says she’s still looking for love in dating apps. The actress and talk show host spoke about her quest for romance on her daytime talk show Thursday on an episode of Drew’s News Hour.
Accompanied by CBS morning Hosts Gayle King, Tony Dokoupil and Nate Burleson, and Ross Mathews of Drews News Contributor Barrymore admitted that she found creating online matching a challenge.
“It’s so hard with dating apps,” she said. “I feel like I’m always swiping left because they’re too young or I don’t know who they are.”
When asked by King if she was still using dating apps after renouncing them, Barrymore admitted, “I’m getting into a dating app.”
“I dive in and out,” she said. “Every now and then, and then I go crazy and jump off.”
“If I could and people didn’t know it was me, I would,” King admitted. “I wish I were brave enough to do it. I prefer to meet someone through a friend of a friend of a friend.”
“You have to go out alone and sit in a bar alone,” advised Mathews. “When you are with friends, nobody will speak to you.”
“Ross, I was alone in a restaurant once and I was sitting there with my book and the waiter came up to me and said ‘Sorry, ma’am, your book is upside down’ because I wanted to pretend I would read, ”King said with a laugh.
While she was recently talking about her experience with dating apps over the past few years on her show, Barrymore told ET in July 2018 that she had decided to stop using them all together.
“I got out [dating apps]. It was fun to try, however, “Barrymore told ET’s Lauren Zima.
According to the actress, who split from her third husband, Will Kopelman in August 2016, she always wanted to go on a blind date, but that was never really an option for her.
“I’ve worked out in public since I was a teenager, so the blind date myth escaped me and I always wanted to do it so it was like a dating app to me,” said Barrymore. “But then it’s not blind on my side, so it just doesn’t work.”
