According to People, after her divorce from Kopelman, Barrymore had a difficult time with her mental health. “I went through a tremendously traumatic divorce and I wasn’t doing very well,” she stated on “The Drew Barrymore Show.” She told Machine Gun Kelly that she sought professional counseling during this difficult period of her life.
Barrymore is considering putting herself back on the dating market six years after her divorce. Regrettably, she has reservations about dating as a mother. “I’m not sure how to date with children… I haven’t arrived yet. I’m a mother of two little daughters and I’m like… I don’t want to bring people back to their homes, “She described it to Bobby Berk, a guest on her talk show.
While dating isn’t off the table for the mother of two, Barrymore insists that it must be with the right person. “I believe it would take me a long time to meet and get to know someone before I could even consider introducing them to my girls,” she explained. Barrymore began to cry as he told Berk about his sentiments. She certainly cares deeply about her girls’ well-being.
The mother claims to be in a much better position today and is considering dating again. The fact that Kopelman has already remarried is one of the reasons Barrymore has begun to consider dating. On CBS Mornings, she told Gayle King:
“My children’s father is happily remarried to Allie, the most amazing woman on the planet. My children have a wonderful stepmother. And our methods are different, and their side of the street is so functioning, complete, and active. And I believe I’ve been in a lovely honoring purgatory on the sidelines.”
Barrymore is fiercely protective of her girls, claiming that she wouldn’t tell anyone about them until she had gotten to know them. ‘I’ve been saying that it’s up to me, that it’s my decision, that I’m not ready and that I prefer to wait.’ I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned out loud that it’s because of my two daughters… “I don’t even talk about my children because I believe we need to get to know each other first,” she told King.
After that, the actress said that she has been single for six years. It’s even more difficult to get back out there after being single for so long. According to Barrymore, “‘I’ll go on a date now and then, but just in the last two years.’ I had to wait until I was four to even go out there.”
The actress went on to say that while she enjoys dating, she is not interested in marriage. According to Barrymore, “I’d live with someone again if I didn’t have children, but there’s no way. I will never, ever, ever, ever get married.”
