Don’t cry for Kim Kardashian. Sure, the 41-year-old mother of four is going through a complicated divorce from her baby daddy, Kanye West. She also had a hot and heavy rebound relationship with Saturday night live alum Pete Davidson, which ended abruptly for lame reasons like lack of time and scheduling conflicts. But the reality TV star-turned-businesswoman seems to have accepted, and maybe even embraced, her single status.
When she showed up The Late Late Show with James Corden Two weeks ago, she seemed in no hurry to start dating again.
“I can’t even begin to imagine Kim Kardashian looking for a partner. It’s not like you bump into anyone at Ralph’s,” Corden said. “How does Kim K get a date?”
“I haven’t really thought about it because I’m not looking, I just want to chill for a minute,” Kardashian replied. “I think I need some me time and focus, finish school, all of that.”
However, she later added that if she got back into the dating game, she wouldn’t be dating a celebrity. She said her closest boyfriend would likely be “a scientist, neuroscientist, biochemist, doctor, lawyer … That’s maybe what I envision for the future.”
Well, be careful what you wish for, because in Kardashian’s case, male professionals in these fields flocked when they learned they might have a snowball chance in hell of being her type.
When Kardashian came by Live with Kelly and Ryan Earlier this week, she admitted that “a bunch of lawyers, scientists and doctors have come forward.”
Unfortunately, their professional pedigree doesn’t help them land the infamous Kim K. That’s because “I’m just not ready,” Kardashian told the show’s hosts Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa.
“I’m not looking for anything,” she continued. “I think I really need to be on my own and focus on finishing law school and my kids.”
Yes, this girl has goals and they don’t include a man. At least not in the foreseeable future.
When asked who she might be dating next, Kardashian replied, “Absolutely nobody.” (That’s pretty definitive, folks. Sorry.) She went on to say that dating apps are “not even an option.” (We wish we could say the same thing.)
But Kim Kardashian isn’t throwing in the towel entirely either. She can still imagine dating, just in a very reticent way.
“I think it would have to be something like a friend’s, something really chilled out, nowhere in public,” she said. “I just want to chill.”
So the most desirable woman in the world just wants to chill. We think we speak for all men when we say we can absolutely handle it. Maybe Kim isn’t that far from our league after all…
