Comfortable being alone but like being in love: Susan Sarandon

Hollywood star Susan Sarandon, who broke up with her boyfriend Jonathan Bricklin in 2015, says she “misses” being in love. The 69-year-old says she is okay being alone but enjoys the feeling of investing in a partner, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I guess the dating thing hasn’t worked out for me. I don’t mind being alone, but I do like being in love, so I miss that. The problem is, I’m kind of at the mercy of the Gods in terms of who I meet,” Susan told HELLO! magazine.
Despite her share of heartbreak, Susan -- who was married to Chris Sarandon from 1967 to 1979, previously dated late singer David Bowie and filmmaker Franco Amurri and was in a relationship with actor Tim Robbins for 21 years until 2009 -- believes being unhappy is a “choice” and always tries to learn from bad situations and stay positive.
“When I made (new movie) The Meddler, I had just broken up with my boyfriend and I wasn’t happy at all,” Susan said.
“I’m generally a happy person. I think being unhappy is a choice, so whatever happens to me, I try to find some way to learn from it and get myself to a better place,” she added.
