Kate Hudson says she doesn’t have a checklist for a partner

Divorced mom of one Kate Hudson, 29, says she doesn’t have a lot of experience dating and that she doesn’t have a list of things she’s looking for in a partner. She calls it egotistical to look for specific traits or characteristics in a partner and says she’s open to what comes her way:

Good news for the millions of men out there that wouldn’t mind dating Kate Hudson — the stunning blonde has just one pre-requisite and that is leave your ego at the door.

“I’m not a judgmental person, if I had a checklist it would be dangerous and I would probably date nobody,” Hudson recently told Tarts. “I think that’s an egotistical approach and egos ruin relationships. You have to be open to everyone.”

Well, almost everyone — there is one guy out there somewhere who didn’t get much of a chance to prove himself to the A-list actress…

“There was one date where I left before we even got food, the guy was just so deeply boring,” she said. “I think he was in banking.”

Speaking of dates (or lack-there-of), Hudson also said she isn’t so skilled in that area and claims to have only dated three people (Owen Wilson, Dax Sheppard and Lance Armstrong) since divorcing rocker Chris Robinson in 2006.

“I got married so young, when I was only 21 and was married for seven years so I don’t know that much about the dating game. I’ve only dated three people in two-and-a-half years, the big transition for me after being married was actually living alone,” the “My Best Friend’s Girl” star said. “Now I love it but the transition of getting there was different and it was hard to settle into it.”

On the surface that sounds reasonable and like you want to keep your options open, but a lot of relationship books for women will tell you it’s a foolish way to conduct your love life. If you don’t know what you’re looking for how can you judge if a partner is right for you? You should have standards and some kind of guidelines for yourself. You wouldn’t just let anyone babysit your child – why would you let just anyone into your life in any kind of capacity? I understand being open to possibilities and the negative connotations of being demanding or having rigid requirements for a partner, but just going along with the flow and winging it makes it sound like you don’t think you deserve certain things.

A boyfriend can make you “feel” great and still be completely wrong for you. I have seen so many friends in this situation making excuses about how they love the jerk. Maybe Hudson is just trying to seem like she’s down to earth and is overstating how approachable she is.

Hudson also recently said “I don’t know if I’ll ever get married again… It depends on who you end up with.” If she was my friend I’d tell her to get her butt in gear and decide exactly what kind of man she wants instead of being vague about it and leaving it up to chance. She’s a gorgeous, successful woman who has the world at her feet and she’s still meekly saying she doesn’t have things she looks for in a partner.

    Uh, she doesn’t have a lot of dating experience? Ok, if she doesn’t, I must not have ANY!

  2. Kaiser says:

    I think she’s just one of those women who has radar for attracting douches and men with issues.

    She looks pretty in that blue dress, though.

  3. bdthomp says:

    Yes, that dress is stunning!

  4. Aspen says:

    She looks for men that need saving. It’s a common ailment. They make her feel needed. That’s my little pet diagnosis.

    She is drop dead, isn’t she? I love looking at her. She looks so much like her mother, but I’d go out on a limb here and say she’s even prettier than Goldie was at this age.

  5. Lore says:

    She’s so average looking. Calling her a stunner is lying. Her coloring is pretty and she has the large face little body thing that photographs well. That’s it.
    She looks a bit like her mom but without the quirky/funny look that made Goldie adorable.

  6. MamaBear says:

    I just pray she retires and moves to Canada. England might like her, Americans not so much. You guys want her??? We took Posh off your hands……heehee

  7. Syko says:

    I don’t know where she gets the “no experience” thing, she has more experience in a week than I ever got in a year. I would guess her only criteria for someone to date is “has a penis” but I could be wrong.

    *Adjusts his tie, slicks back his hair*

    Better jump on the opportunity before she starts looking like a Botoxed monkey skeleton like her mom, Goldie.

  9. Rosanna says:

    I don’t like this chick, for some reason BUT now I’m going to defend her… CB, she never said she would *hook up* with anyone, she did say she is open to give people a chance. Good matches aren’t about checklists… There are people who you could think they aren’t for you and therefore wouldn’t date (according to your checklist) but then you give them a chance and they are the right one. Sandra Bullock anyone????

  10. Syko says:

    I agree with you on the checklists, Rosanna. I’ve seen too many people sitting home waiting for their “type” to show up while others are out having a good time with people of all types. You just never know who’s going to set your chimes to ringing.

    That beautiful soft blue dress and then that hard hard face above it. Its hard to believe she’s not yet thirty – her face is so pinched

    Kate’s only prerequisite in a man is that he have a magic wand……she’s hardly the discriminating type – as long as he’s a man

  12. mollination says:

    Thank You xia, I thought I was the only one. The first thing I thought when I looked at her picture was, “Terrible hair, hard face– ooooh pretty dress!!”

  13. Codzilla says:

    Is she ever going to make a decent movie, again? “Almost Famous” came out like a hundred years ago, and she’s done nothing but crap ever since.

  14. Mairead says:

    I pop in one exception there Coddie, “About Adam” is a good film. And she managed a spot-on middle-class Dublin accent.

    Although I liked You Me & Dupree, her role was irrelevant. it just had to be someone prettier than the two lads and with more oestrogen.

    @dante.. g’wan my son! :wink:
