Hilary Duff is single and ready to mingle … and she’s apparently doing it on Tinder.
After it was rumored that the Younger actress and singer has been spotted on the dating app, she called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday morning to not only confirm it, but also dish on some of the details. In fact, on Monday night she went on a Tinder date with a guy named Tom!
“It’s totally me on Tinder,” insists Hilary. “It kind of started out to be a joke with some of my girlfriends. I was like, ‘Explain this whole thing to me because it’s kind of blowing my mind.’ We were swiping and it started out to be kind of a joke and then I was like, ‘I’m gonna join Tinder,’ and they were like, ‘What?! No way you can’t.’ And I was like, ‘Why can’t I? Yeah, I absolutely can.’ I never thought anything was really going to happen. I was talking to a few of the guys and they were really normally.”
As for her date with the lucky guy named Tom, Hilary, 27, says it was more of a group activity.
“We went bowling so we didn’t have to talk too much, but we did talk a lot actually,” she explains. “He was cool. He brought a friend and I had some friends there. He used to be in editing for reality shows. Now, he’s an actor and he just wrote a play. He’s an interesting guy. To be honest, I don’t really want an actor either … I think he has a few jobs.”
So did they end the night with a kiss? “No! Absolutely not.” And as for whether or not Tom will get a second date with Hilary, she’s unsure. “I don’t know how I’m feeling. We’ll see how it goes.”
And that’s because she has another Tinder date later this week! “I’m just a Tinder animal!” she jokes, adding that it will be a one-on-one night. “I had my Tinder training wheels on for my first date. Now it’s smooth sailing.”
Although Hilary, who is currently going through a divorce from ex-husband Mike Comrie, doesn’t know if marriage is in the cards for her again, she does want “to fall in love again” and she’d prefer he not have the same occupation as she does. “It’s hard to meet people in this business and I don’t want to date an actor,” she explains.
Before she hung up, Hilary claimed she would call Ryan and Ellen on Thursday to give us the details on her second Tinder date … so check back in then to find out how it went!
