Stassi Schroeder is newly single and loving it.
After parting ways with Patrick Meagher over the summer, the Vanderpump Rules star opened up about being single and getting back into the dating game.
“I mean, I’m dating,” Schroeder told PEOPLE Now, adding that being single “has been a lot of fun.”
“I’ve had a really good time,” she added. “I’m like, actively trying not to do what I normally do, which is just jump right into a relationship... I actually didn’t know how independent I was, and that’s been really cool [to discover]. When you’re just alone all the time, you really do learn that you can handle s**t.”
Schroeder and Meagher broke up months ago and during an episode of Straight Up with Stassi podcasts a few weeks later, the reality star spoke of the split.
“Because we’ve broken up and gotten back together so many times, it was like: ‘We can’t do this pattern anymore, this routine of breaking up and getting back together every month. I can’t do it. Like, I can’t,’ ” she explained. “And so I have to do something to make this official.”
“I feel like I tweeted it because I deserve and he deserves so much better than this relationship where no one ever knows if we’re together or apart,” she said. “We deserve something stable or steady.”
