Kim Kardashian apparently isn’t taking too much downtime following her and Pete Davidson’s breakup after 10 months of dating early this month. A source told E! that Kardashian is ready to try to find love again and is “asking who she should date next.”
A second source said that Kardashian “has plenty of options. All of her friends are constantly trying to set her up.” She isn’t likely to date another 28 year old like Davidson, that source added: “Kim’s expressed she’s ready to date someone older but it has to be the right person who understands her life. She isn’t compromising her freedom right now. She enjoys dating and is definitely open to putting herself out there again.”
Kardashian and Davidson understood, a “highly-placed” source told Page Six on August 8, that their relationship likely wasn’t going to go the distance. “Pete knew it wasn’t going to work. He’d been saying it for a while, and Kim knew it too,” the source said. “The distance was a big thing [with Davidson filming in Australia at the end of their relationship and Kardashian in California], and next month Pete starts shooting his new show in NYC and he’s going to be busy with that.”
A separate source told Page Six that the two being in different life places too didn’t help. “Pete is totally spontaneous and impulsive and wants her to fly to New York, or wherever he is on a moment’s notice,” the source said. “But Kim has four kids and it isn’t that easy. She needs to focus on the kids. [She was ] totally exhausted by this relationship and other things going on in her life.”
