Drew Barrymore turned "Dr. Drew" for a day when she offered some dating advice on a chat show.
The cute star, who produced and appeared in He''s Just Not That Into You – a rom com about the modern dating scene based on the best-selling self-help book – told Early Show co-anchor Julie Chen that she is struggling to navigate the cyberspace dating pool, reports CBS News.
"I''m like a shark who somebody stuck two knives in my eyes. Like where I am going? I don''t understand, like, how somebody says ''hello,'' you''re supposed to get right back to them. Or if they write you, do you have to write them back? Maybe sometimes I don''t want to write you back," she said.
"Did you learn anything after making the film?" Chen asked.
"If you have to work so hard at it and you think it''s the Da Vinci code and you''re decrypting, decrypting, decrypting, get out!" Barrymore stressed.
While on the show, "Dr. Drew" came forward to help people deal with their love life. Some of these tips are:
# "Don''t listen to what he''s saying. Look at what he''s doing. That''s so much more telling than any verbal gymnastics they''re going to give you."
# "It''s been a long time. He''s not coming back. Move on. You''re wasting time in your life."
# "Being single is great, too, because it''s, like, it''s the possibility is around any corner."
