The model and actress who recently broke up with Pete Davidson now says she has had enough of dating men who cannot handle a strong woman.
Speaking on her High Low Podcast, the 31-year-old Gone Girl star discussed the pros and cons of dating and how a lot of men are intimidated by strong-headed ladies.
“I have always felt like I’m a strong woman, but obviously as you get older, you really don’t need a man. And you’re like, OK, this is what everybody has told me. Men have said, ‘I like independent women. I want somebody who doesn’t need me,’” Ratajkowski said while talking to her guest, Olivia Ponton.
The influencer recently ended things with the former SNL star and serial Hollywood dater, Pete Davidson, 29, after a brief fling that only lasted two months.
“Now we hear they’ve gone their separate ways,” Page Six reported.
“Their fling has moved into the friend zone,” a source revealed to the outlet. “Fine with both of them.”
“Last week, Davidson was spotted three times with Wonders. They were seen outside his apartment, shopping together at a Whole Foods in Brooklyn and at a Rangers game. (Apparently Madison Square Garden is a favorite date spot for the “Saturday Night Live” star.)”
People Magazine reported that a source close to the model confirmed that she is over Davidson and is keeping her options open for dating new people.
“Em is single and totally happy,” the source said. “She will always prioritize her son, but enjoys dating when she has time. She enjoys her independence. She doesn’t have plans to see Pete again. She had fun with him, but she realized she didn’t want it to become anything else. She likes her life as it is.”
Now on Tuesday’s episode of her popular podcast, Emily said that most men love her strong side, but then they get emasculated.
“So I’m like, ‘Okay, I did it, wow,'” she said. “What I hate with dating men, in particular, is I feel like they’re like, ‘Okay, yes. You’re special. You’ve done it…”
“They slowly get emasculated, and they don’t know what to do with those feelings, and they resent you, and then they start to tear you down,” she continued. “And then you’re just back to square one.”
The Cruise actress slammed the whole dynamic by calling it “f–ked up and unfair” and said,
“A lot of men who truly think they want a strong woman actually don’t know how to handle it, and they don’t know what it means for their own identity…..with heteronormative relationships, I think that that happens.”
“The strength and the power is associated with the masculine, and once a woman has that, a man doesn’t know what else he has. But I’m like, ‘How about you just be better at expressing your emotions and being there emotionally? That would be great.'”
The My Body author, who came out as bi-sexual on TikTok earlier this year, revealed that she had received so many direct requests from women on the app, which is exciting.
Last week a source close to the model revealed that she has been using dating apps to keep her options open.
“I do feel like this app is very white, and it feels like a particular type of man and a particular type of woman,” Emily said about the dating app Raya.
“So I don’t know if I’m going to meet my lady crush on here.”
