Drew Barrymore says looking for love online ‘makes me feel like a loser’: ‘I don’t think my happiness is on this dating app’
Drew Barrymore feels ‘vulnerable’ on dating apps.
The 46-year-old actress admitted that finding love online isn’t easy during an episode of The Drew Barrymore Show.
“I’ll tell you and don’t feel sorry for me because that’s just what happens to all of us women out there… No one has connected with me,” she said.

Barrymore went on to say that she finds using dating apps particularly exhausting.
“It makes me feel like a loser. And you’re like you know what? It’s just tough out there, it’s tough out there for everyone. It’s hard in person, it’s hard on dating apps, it’s vulnerable,” she said.
However, the actress – who has Olive, nine, and Frankie, seven, with ex-husband Will Kopelman and was briefly married to Jeremy Thomas and Tom Green – insists it’s perfectly possible to to be happy without having a partner.
She said: ‘You keep trying and you fill your life so much that it becomes secondary…I think a cherry on top of my life at a practical, cool, inspiring and unexpected time could be in there – but that’s all.

The interpreter notably added that “I don’t think my happiness is on this dating app” and insisted she was not “desperate” in her search for love.
She joked, “I’m hopeless in many areas of my life and dating isn’t one of them.”
It comes after Drew offered Cardi B advice on adopting a vegan diet.
The WAP hitmaker first asked his Twitter followers: “I want to go vegan but I like meat. Do vegan meat substitutes taste similar to meat or not really?”

She also shared a video where she told Cardi B that she was a “flexitarian” while talking about her eating habits.
The performer described herself as “one of your biggest fans of all time” during the clip.
