Drew Barrymore unveils the soul of his love life and then takes on the role of therapist

Drew Barrymore turned what could have been an end-of-show filler on Monday into a moving confession about her love life – and she gave some helpful love advice for good measure. (Watch the video below.)

In a quick play of “Drewth or Dare” on “The Drew Barrymore Show,” an audience member asked the host if she was checking romantic outlook.

Barrymore shared that although she uses a dating app, all of the men out there are “fun and shy” and don’t share anything about who they are. The actor said she Google searches for them, but resents them as she finds out who they are because of all the hard work.

Then she opened up even more.

“I’m going to tell you this, and don’t feel sorry for me because that’s exactly what happens to all of us women out there: no one has been connected with me,” Barrymore said. “It makes you feel like a loser. … It’s just hard there. It’s hard for everyone. It’s hard in person. It’s tough on dating apps.

But the actor also offered a perspective.

“You keep trying and you fill your life with so many things that it becomes secondary,” she continued. “I don’t think my happiness is on this dating app. I think the icing on the cake of my life at a practical, cool, inspiring and unexpected time could be here. But that’s all it is.

Back in October, Barrymore reunited with her second husband, Tom Green, in person for the first time in decades on his show. She separated from her third husband, Will Kopelman, in 2016. They have two children.
