Actress Drew Barrymore is happy to be single again and is enjoying the independence.
When asked what the best part about being single was, she said: "Just look at my face, I can't stop smiling!"
So it isn't scary at all? "No! I'm very happy," people.com quoted her as saying.
"I think it's important to give someone your heart and trust them and not be cynical. At the same time, I think being independent and strong and happy on your own and by yourself is probably what will make you a better lover because you'd be less needy. So I'm for both," added Barrymore, who recently split with her boyfriend.
On dating in Hollywood, she said: "I think it's the same for everybody. Inter-office dating is as challenging as inter-Hollywood dating. It's a small school, small town. We are forced to be in these circles.
"There are little seas and those are the fish we swim around. I wish everyone good luck in love because it ain't easy anywhere. But it can be found, and I am an absolute romantic and an optimist."
