Actress and television star Jennie Garth is back in the dating scene, but reportedly she would rather do much more unpleasant things.
"I always said I would rather lick a dirty floor than go back to dating," she said, according to WebProNews. "Dating is very new for me. I have training wheels on right now, because I was married for so long. That's my whole adult life, basically. I think I'm actually going back into adult adolescence. I'm having a moment."

Garth, 40, was married Peter Facinelli and sources say that the actress does not want any kind of serious relationship now, and instead wants some time to enjoy herself. The couple's divorce took a major toll on Garth, with the actress admitting that it was a difficult time in her life to get past.
"It's unfortunate," Garth said when interviewed on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." "It happens to the best of us. It's something that has been really tough, for sure. My husband and I, we grew up together, so we are very important people to each other."
But after 11 years of marriage, CelebrityCafe.com reported that the former "Beverly Hills, 90210" star is now seeing photographer Noah Abrams. The two were seen strolling in Los Angeles on Aug. 14 holding hands and US Weekly posted a photo of the couple together, with Garth all smiles.
The magazine also quoted a source close to Garth that said, "She's happier than ever!"
"I've been certainly going through a transitional time in my life," she said in a recent TV interview.
Abrams, 33, has shot for Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, SI and GQ with his clientele including Coldplay, Tony Hawk and Zoe Saldana, according to People magazine. Currently, he is working on a documentary about The Black Keys band mates Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney.
