It's already been quite a long time since Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham has been ready for romance. And it may be a long time still to come.
After ex-boyfriend Derek Underwood died in December 2008, the teen put dating on hold so she could focus on raising their daughter Sophia.
According to the reality star, now 20, that will change. Just not yet.
"I'm pretty positive you might see me on a date again," the single mom says ahead of this evening's Teen Mom season premiere. "The fun thing is I get to go on dates and meet random guys and not be so serious."
"I get emails and letters at home like, 'Find me on Facebook,' but how many of those guys are really sincere?" muses the mother of Sophia, now 2.
There are plenty of obstacles in her way, it's true.In addition to the commitment of raising a child, Farrah Abraham finds it difficult to meet Mr. Right now that she's on the MTV show (she, Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell and Amber Portwood all return for season three).
"I feel like I have my independence right now, so I might as well take full advantage and work harder. When the right person comes, then I'll accept him into our lives, but right now I'm not trying to have a relationship," she adds.
"Dating is more fun than a relationship right now for me."
When she's ready, we don't imagine she'll lack for suitors.
