Below are a few highlights from Mollie”s interview. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Cosmopolitan UK!
On the single life:
“I”m enjoying being single and I”m definitely not gagging to be in another relationship. When I go out, I”m not going out to find a man; I”m going to dance the night away with my best friends.”
On enduring heartbreak:
“Everyone says, “Give it time, you”ll feel better in the morning.” But you don”t. You feel like it”s never, ever going to heal – especially during the first few weeks. It isn”t anything less if you do the dumping. For me it”s always been like, “Have I done the right thing Have I made the right decision” You start to doubt yourself, because you still miss that person. It”s like a habit that”s been taken away from you, and you feel lost.”
On her expectations in a relationship
“I”ve never had a one-night stand or sex on the first date, and I don”t think I ever would. It”s important for a guy to know and understand me before he can even think about taking things to the next step.”
On wishing for a “Happily Ever After” romance:
“I want the fairy tale and I”m not going to settle for anything less… Seeing my parents make me realize that life is not a fairy tale. But I still want mine to be as close to one as I can get… It”s about meeting the perfect guy, falling in love, being genuinely happy – and knowing that, in 40 years” time, if you were still waking up next to that guy you”d still feel like the luckiest girl alive.”
