“By the time I hit that age I thought I would have kids and still be married,” she told the mag. “But because that’s not the way it went, you can’t sit in a ball and cry. I had a husband, so I think there’s an adjustment period, which I don’t want to rush. Dating is so weird.”
Kardashian, who is in an on-again, off-again relationship with rapper French Montana, didn’t get specific when it came to her dating life, but she did offer up some details about what she’s looking for.
“I don’t crave sex,” she said. “I talked about it more openly when I was married because it’s more comfortable. I crave companionship — I just want to cuddle. I got married at 25 — I was young, but I loved it. I do like it when you save certain things for your marriage. I don’t think you should treat every guy you’re dating like your husband. It doesn’t make it special.”
The reality star filed for divorce from basketball player Lamar Odom in December 2013 and documented the painful process on her family’s show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Even though she loved marriage, Kardashian felt it was important to remain self-sufficient throughout.
“When I first got married some of my girlfriends said, ‘You never have to work now — you married a basketball player,'” she said. “But I don’t care if you marry someone who works at the grocery store or someone who is a director of a company, everyone should have their own identity. It’s not about numbers.”
These days she’s living in her new Hidden Hills, Calif. home with her younger brother Rob Kardashian and enjoying the single life.
“I’m happy,” she said. “I moved into my new house, which is the first time I’ve owned a home on my own. It’s a big step and my brother lives with me — I’m so happy about that.”
