Kate Hudson says she’s trying to remain single


Kate Hudson has been criticized in the past for jumping into super serious relationships too quickly and scaring off guys. Kate seems to have realized this herself – she says that her current goal is to wait as long as possible before she gets into another relationship. The way she phrases it is kind of cute, as though it’s something that might happen to her, or like she has no control over it. But the ultimate point is clear: she realizes you can learn a lot about yourself when you’re single.

Kate Hudson may be “a hot ticket” in the dating world, according to her good friend, designer Stella McCartney, but the actress says she’s in no rush to jump into a relationship.

“I’m actually enjoying being single right now because I really never have been,” Hudson – who’s dated Lance Armstrong and Owen Wilson – tells InStyle magazine for its January issue.

“I feel good in relationships,” says the 29-year-old actress. “I enjoy them, so I feel my best when I’m in something solid. But it’s also the first time I’ve ever taken a step back and gotten a new perspective.”

“So,” concludes Hudson, “I’ve made a conscious decision to try to stay single as long as possible.”

McCartney, who interviewed Hudson for the magazine, chimes in, joking, “What’s it been – all of two weeks? Congratulations!”

“Exactly,” quips Hudson, who McCartney says has “always been in demand.”

Kate’s gorgeous with a bubbly, ebullient nature. I’m not at all surprised that she’s “always been in demand.” It sounds like she realizes she can learn a lot about herself and have a good time by staying single for a bit. And it’s probably less confusing for her son if he doesn’t have men bouncing in and out of his life. Nonetheless, Kate’s explanation for why she prefers being in a relationship makes perfect sense. Hopefully she can take some time for herself, and then get into a relationship that works even better for her.

    Maybe she read the book, “He’s just not into You”…..

    I DO like Kate Hudson. She admits she doesn’t have all the answers…and she’s in there doing her best.

    Look when my marriage split up when I was in my mid 30′s I did an amazing amount of dating and otherwise :twisted: It’s healthy and normal and needs to be done…:)

    I was talking with my friend yesterday and came to the realization that in the last 9 years, I have only been single for 1 of those years. Kate makes perfect sense in regards to the stability factor and that it can be hard to not want that in your life, even if it’s not necessarily what you really need at the time.

    Yeah, she’s happy being single right now… and in another month she’ll be practically living with the next guy who beeps on her horrible Man Radar.

    Back when Queen Victoria was on the throne and I was getting a divorce, I was scared. I’d been a stay at home mom for 17 years, was pretty sure I was not going to earn enough to support three kids, and didn’t have a lot of faith in my ex’s reliability with child support. But I figured I could make it a couple of years and in that length of time I would find someone else to take care of me. The car (VW, Daisy!) would last at least two years, I had enough clothes for two years, the kids’ teeth were in good shape, etc.

    Two years passed, and on the second anniversary of my divorce, not only was I not dating ANYONE, but my ex remarried on that very day. Eye opener!

    After a few months of depression and going over and over “what’s wrong with me?”, I finally realized that I had two choices. I could spend the next few years searching for someone to marry, risking marrying the wrong man again, or I could realize that I might be single forever, and I should make my life as good as I possibly could, so I’d have no regrets when I got old. I chose Option 2.

    As it turned out, Mr. Right lost the directions to my house, and I’ve been single now for some 30 years. But I’ve had a great time, and there’s not a thing I’d change about it. Except possibly a couple of the numbers on that lottery ticket.

    Maybe, just maybe, Kate is coming to that same realization?

    Syko: I lived the same story! I have been divorced 25 yrs and those first couple of years, I was so longing for another husband, the security of marriage. It wasn’t to be but after I got my bearings…look out! I have had a successful career, dated some very nice men ( and a couple of stinkers. You know what I mean). I can entertain myself, be happy with myself and my life. Funny how attaining that peace can really enhance your happiness quotient!
    Congratultions on your successful journey.

    And congratulations right back to you, RReedy!

    You couldn’t pay me to get married again now!

    Unless maybe Hugh Jackman wants a REALLY older woman.

    Listen, it’s weird of any woman to base her life around having a man there at the center of her world. Be a little selfish. Let’s be bold and try putting, dare I say it, OURSELVES as our first priority in life. Woohoo!

    What a product of Hollywood Nepotism this one is. She’s taking another well-deserved actress’ place. Boycott this one.
