Trying new things! Emily Ratajkowski revealed why she’s on a dating app amid her romance with Pete Davidson – and whether she has met anyone.
“I downloaded an app, you guys. And put up a profile,” Ratajkowski, 31, confessed during the Thursday, Dec. 22, episode of her “High Low” podcast.
The model – who has been linked to Davidson, 29, for more than a month – noted that drinking helped her create her new side.
“I had a glass of wine and I was like, ‘Fuck it,'” she explained. “I actually felt defiant because so many people told me not to have it.”
The My body The author pointed out that she is a “free, independent single woman,” which is why she decided to dive into social media dating.
“I have gone mad [messages], Ratajkowski told listeners. “I’ve had some direct requests from women, which is exciting.”
The I feel pretty actress admitted: “I feel like this app is a little white. It’s very white and feels like a very special kind of man and frankly a very special kind of woman. So I don’t know if I’m going to meet my lady crush here.”
Ratajkowski added that even though she’s only been on the app for “a couple of days,” she’s matched with a few people — most of whom have been people she already knew.
“We’ve talked about this so many times about how I need normal guys,” the English native told her friend on the podcast. “We want like a surgeon. We want a lawyer. An academic. I’m on this app just to meet these people.”
The We are your friends Star also shared why she’s “afraid” to go on first dates after splitting from her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard in July. The exes, who tied the knot in 2018, share 21-month-old son Sylvester.
“I get super nervous. Then later I regret it [my actions]”, Ratajkowski said Thursday. Sometimes I think, ‘Why do I work so hard?’ I’m afraid I’ll walk up to someone and immediately know I made a mistake.”
The Lying and stealing The actress’ foray into the dating app world came as Davidson sparked romance speculation with Chase Sui Wonders after being spotted at a New York Rangers game together on December 15.
