Actress Kerry Washington was dreading the prospect of dating men after splitting with fiance David Moscow earlier this year (07) - because she's never really dated before.
The Fantastic Four beauty, who has always been in a series of relationships, has never had to look for love before.
She tells website People.com, "I was always that girl who was in long-term relationships, and I was never really single.
"I had always met guys in other ways and never really did the whole dating scene where you go out on multiple dates with different guys.
"I am totally the girl who gets introduced to someone through a mutual friend and a dinner party, falls in love and then is with them for like two years.
"I was scared I would meet really weird men or have all these horror stories, but I have none so far. It has all been a lot of fun so far. I'm having a blast meeting people."
She adds, "No one has to feel sorry for me. I'm not lonely. I have my dog."
