Single, not quite ready to mingle? Amy Roloff dips her toe into the dating pool on the Tuesday, November 29, episode of Little People, Big World — but she’s not exactly eager to dive in all the way.
As seen in Us Weekly‘s exclusive sneak peek from the TLC unscripted series, Amy joins her friend at a painting event, where she meets a whole group of other singles. She puts up a confident front, but privately, she admits to the camera that she’s way out of her comfort zone.
“Ever since childhood, junior high, high school, college, social settings just have been really difficult for me,” she explains. “Because being a little person or being short, it just feels to me awkward, and I don’t know if I’m making myself awkward or if other people feel awkward. And I’m like, ‘Why? It’s just me. Can we just flow into it?'”
After getting a glass of wine (liquid courage!), she begins to introduce herself to others at the event. “I never did really any dating in my younger years,” she tells the camera. “So I’m like, I just know I’m bad. I’m just bad at this single stuff.”
Asked by one of the men how long she’s been single, she says “about three years.” (Amy and Matt Roloff announced their split in 2014 after 26 years together.) “So you’re a veteran,” he jokes.
“Being married to Matt for as long as we were, 26 years, it is scary,” she admits privately. “It’s like, for me, it’s a whole new ballgame and I’m not sure if I know the rules, I’m not sure if I know the protocol.”
She gets another curveball when the event coordinator announces that instead of each person working individually on a painting, they’ll have to pair up.
Watch the clip above to see how she reacts. Little People, Big World airs Tuesdays on TLC at 8 p.m. ET.
