Kim Kardashian is happily single — and she’s letting the world know it.
As I’m sure you’ve seen before, Kim parted ways with the former Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson – whom she had been dating since November – early last month after the couple reportedly found it “very difficult to maintain a relationship”.
According E ! Newwho heard from an insider close to the pair, Kim and Pete ended on good terms and still had “lots of love and respect for each other” but just had a hard time dealing with it. their “demanding schedules” and their “long-distance dynamics”.

Moreover, it was clear that Pete – who has obtained several tattoos (and trademark scars) on his body in honor of Kim – was a staple of Kim’s life as he was spotted hanging out with his 9- and 6-year-old children, North and Saint, at distinct occasions during their relationship.
But alas, the couple broke up, and now – for the first time since the split – Kim has opened up about being single again.

Kim replied, “I haven’t really thought about it because I’m not watching, I just want to relax for a minute.”
“I think I need time for myself and to focus, finish school, all that stuff,” she said.
However, Kim went on to reveal that her “next path” would involve trying something completely different, as she admitted her current dating choices haven’t been too successful.
“But I think my next route… I feel like I have to do something [different]like, going to different places,” she told James.
“It’s clearly not working, no matter what I do. So I don’t know,” she said.
Kim then revealed her exact hopes for a future partner, noting that she doesn’t envision herself with any other celebrity figures.
“Maybe [I’ll go to] a hospital and meet a doctor, [or] a law firm – I think it will be a scientist, a neuroscientist, a biochemist, a doctor, a lawyer… Maybe that’s what I envision in the future,” she said.

And no one will ever do it like that [again]. I’m grateful for those experiences, but I think I’m ready for the little experiences that I think will mean a lot.

I don’t think we’ve ever seen her so happy,” one person wrote. “It’s like she’s a new person, she gives off so much new energy,” another added.
