I think it can be fun to be single and date-like when you don't want a relationship. Or when you've just gotten out of a relationship, and, after get over the initial shock, your thinking, Hey, it's kind of cool being single.
I was 11 and always watched TV and cartoons and I would always kind of point at the cartoons and say, "I want to do that." And a friend of mine got me an interview with their agent and that was it. I just kind of started pretending for a job. That was it. I pretended for a living.
