Three years after her divorce, Alicia Silverstone is going digital in her search for love.
The actress has joined the dating app Bumble.
"I always thought it sounded so fascinating. It sounded like it opened up a lot of possibility for people and created hope," the "Clueless" star told People magazine, acknowledging that she's working in collaboration with the app. "And I've heard tons of beautiful stories from people. I think it's very much the norm now. And it makes sense. It's kind of like going to a bar, but it's more effective. It's an adventure."
For Alicia, meeting people the old fashioned way just doesn't seem to work anymore, so she's found the app to be beneficial.
"I just think it's a great way for people to meet," she said. "You know, I think that it's really nice that we have friends that can connect us. You can be set up by friends, you can be at a party and tell people, 'Hey, do you know anyone?' You can do things like that. I have experience where I'll go to an in-person event and no one's really engaged. They're sort of in their phones, and it's a bit discouraging."
The mom of one isn't totally ruling out meeting people organically, but by joining the app she's leaving all options on the table.
"Sometimes you do meet people out in the real world, and I certainly have, and it's been wonderful," she said, "but I think [Bumble] is just a really nice way for people to meet."
Regardless of how she meets someone, she notes that her behavior won't change on dates, which means no drinking. Why? Sometimes wine can lead to "sexy time."
"That's why I don't drink on dates. And if you don't like them suddenly you like them because you're drinking!" she said. "New rules: No alcohol until I already know I like you."
