Tracee Ellis Ross is happily single as she has a “productive relationship with loneliness”.
The High Note star isn’t currently dating and has been spending much of the COVID-19 lockdown by herself – but she insists she’s more than happy with her current set-up.
“I am happily single, though that doesn’t mean I am not open to and don’t want a relationship,” she tells Shape magazine. “But in my wonderful and robust experience of being single, I have learned to have a productive relationship with loneliness and an intensely juicy relationship with my joyful solitude — I really enjoy my company.”
The actress, who was briefly connected to Black-ish creator Kenya Barris last year (2019), explained, “One of the things that’s been lovely to discover is how I care for myself and how I actively love myself. And I believe that love is an action: You get back what you put in.”
The 47-year-old added: “I used to spend so much time trying to be perfect, to get it perfect. But that’s not realistic. Bad feelings come up.”
