Emily Ratajkowski is a 'recently single person' and 'thinking about dating' again

·2-min read


Emily Ratajkowski is "thinking about dating" after becoming "a recently single person".
The 31-year-old model - who recently split from husband Sebastian Bear-McClard after four years of marriage - has opened up on the way society talks about "dating" and finding a partner, and how she sees it after her breakup.
In a TikTok this week, she said: "Under a patriarchy, there's this premise of men 'getting women,' 'getting them,' 'pulling them' like there's something to possess.
"As a recently single person who is thinking about dating and stuff, I've really seen that with my friends and with the conversations around it."
Emily noted that certain conversations should instead focus on a "reciprocal mutual relationship where two people could potentially foster love".
She added: "That's why we don't have a lot of love in cis-hetro relationships."
The mum-of-one - who has 17-month-old son Sylvester Apollo Bear with her husband - also responded to a clip of psychotherapist Esther Perel discussing "the secret of female sexuality".
Esther said: "If she can think about herself then she can be into it."
Emily agreed with the sentiment and pointed out how women being sexualised impacts the way other women look at thmeselves.
She commented: "This is so true, and it's because women have internalised the male gaze so much that when we're having sex we're thinking about how hot or not we are."
She also noted how she is interested in having these kinds of discussions.
She added: "It's kind of crazy that women are so used to seeing women sexualised and sexualising themselves that we're thinking of being sexualised during sex for lack of a better way of putting it."
Speculation first arose Emily and Sebastian had ended their relationship when she was spotted without her wedding ring.
A source said at the time: “They split recently. It was Em’s decision. She is doing okay. She is strong and focused on her son. She loves being a mom.”
In June, the pair had already sold their Los Angeles home for around $2.4 million.
Emily was recently pictured in Manhattan on August 31 apparently moving out of the home she shared with Sebastian.
However, the pair are still to make firm public statements about their separation.
