Emily Ratajkowski has opened up about her dating life, revealing she’s back on dating apps post-divorce and admitting she wants to date “normies”.
Since her divorce from Sebastian Bear-McClar earlier this year, the model’s love life has made headlines, with Pete Davidson dating rumours emerging in mid-November followed by recent links to Jack Greer.
Despite this, the Gone Girl actress has highlighted her desire to move away from dating celebrities and speak to some more ‘normal’ people.
“I need normal guys, ‘normies’. We want, like, a surgeon, a lawyer … an academic,” she said in a new episode of her podcast High Low with EmRata.

Ratajkowski also spoke about downloading a dating app for the first time since her split from Sebastian Bear-McClard, whom she shares a son with.
“I’m a free, independent, single woman and I want to do it,” she told her friend and podcast guest, Kat, but did not reveal which app she is using.
“It’s only been a couple of days, but I have so much to say.”
Despite Kat noting Ratajkowski is often the one who takes the lead in helping her friends create dating apps, the model voices her wish for help with her own account.

“More than one in five people had someone help with their dating profile,” she said.
“I honestly wish I had someone to help with my dating profile but I don’t know who could help me.”
Ratajkowski noted the narrow demographic on the app, mentioning the lack of diversity.
“I feel like this app is a little bit white,” she said.
“It feels like a very particular type of man and, honestly, a very particular kind of woman, so I don’t know that I’m gonna meet my lady crush on here.”
In October, Ratajkowski seemed to publicly come out as bisexual on TikTok, with many fans claiming the admission was a ‘win for women’.
“I have gotten a few direct requests from women, which is exciting,” she said.
In spite of her excitement, it seems being a celebrity doesn’t stop Ratajkowski from having all-too-familiar experiences on dating apps.
The My Body author opened up about some of the more forward responses she’s received.
“This guy said to me, ‘To be honest, Emily, I’m a little confused. I’m not sure if I should go for the nonchalant ‘hi,’ or ask you directly if you want to be my wife and have my babies.'”
