Following her split from Pete Davidson, Kim Kardashian has a new dating rule: Her suitors have to be age-appropriate.

On the Oct. 18 episode of The Kardashians, Kardashian opened up about what she’s looking for in a potential partner. After her friends joked that they might meet some “cute guys” at an Arsenal FC soccer game they’d planned to attend in London, Kardashian explained that she wouldn’t date just any cute guy.

“Why are you all looking at me? I have age limits, guys,” said. “I need just a little more age-appropriate. I need [someone in their] 40s.”

Kim Is Happy Being Single — For Now

Later in the same episode, Kardashian shared that while her friends are eager to set her up on dates, she’s content with being single — for now, at least.

“When you’re single and all your friends are married, it’s like you have desperation on your face and everyone under the sun wants to hook you up with someone,” she said in a confessional. “I’m genuinely just OK with being by myself for a minute and the right situation will come my way.”

Kardashian began dating Davidson (who is 13 years her junior) in the fall of 2021, shortly after they met during her Saturday Night Live hosting gig. The pair split in August 2022 after nine months of dating.

Kim Regrets Moving So Fast

In a July 2023 episode of The Kardashians, Kardashian shared regret over jumping “into another relationship so fast” after divorcing ex-husband Kanye West.

“It got my mind away from stuff and that's not a way to run from things,” she explained, before sharing advice with her younger siblings, Kendall and Kylie Jenner: “It’s better to deal. Heal… deal, heal, and then feel.”

Kardashian has had a number of high-profile relationships over the years, including those with ex-husbands Damon Thomas, Kris Humphries, and West.

Kardashian and West, who share four children (North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm), finalized their divorce in November 2022 after six years of marriage.

Kim Is A Hopeless Romantic

Speaking after her split from Davidson and divorce from West, Kardashian disclosed that she’s open to finding love again during an appearance on the On Purpose with Jay Shetty podcast in May 2023.

“I think I’ll always be a hopeless romantic and always want to be in love and definitely love sharing my life with someone,” she said. “I definitely will take my time. And I think there’s so many factors, especially when you have kids and being mindful of people that enter in your life.”
