Since TomKat split, we've heard rumors here and there about Katie Holmes stepping out with this guy or that guy. We've kept our fingers crossed that maybe somehow Joshua Jackson would ditch longtime love Diane Kruger and head back to the Creek with Katie. Or Chris Klein would come back into the picture like a knight in shining armor. But nah. So far, Katie has stayed squarely single in her post-divorce life. Though rumor has it that she may start dating again soon!
But wait, it's not so simple. A "family insider" was recently clucking about what's next for Tom Cruise's ex. While she might be getting ready to look for a new relationship, she also has some reservations ...
The insider claims:
Katie's in a dilemma, because she wants to date but is concerned where it could lead to from there. She's worried that if she commits herself fully to another man, she will have to give up the freedom she's enjoying so much at the moment. As a single woman, she has no one controlling her nowadays, telling her what to do or who to see and she absolutely loves it!
Oof, so I guess Xenu didn't leave Katie scar-free after her split ... She's worried about being "controlled"?! Poor thing! When you find the right man, you are partners. You make decisions jointly. You are happy to do as you please. (Well, I guess unless you're in love with Christian Grey, but that's a whole different story ...)
The good news is that it sounds like there's some hope for the former Miss Joey Potter. The family insider continues:
However, at the same time, she also misses being with someone special to share experiences with and she doesn't want to be alone for the rest of her life. Katie's got Suri for the time being, and she is her best friend, but she does eventually want to find a man she can be that close with as well. She's just a little nervous and cautious about relationships still right now.
Well, who could blame her, really? After what I'd bet she's been through, I understand her wanting to be cautious -- for her own sake and Suri's! It's hard enough just being a celebrity and not knowing if someone wants to be with you for you or because you're rich, famous, and used to be married to Tom Cruise, obvy! But seems like the sooner she moves on and puts her first marriage behind her, the better! Can't wait for her to meet the right guy, because it'll be awesome to see her happily in love again (or for real ... whaaatever).
Would you want to see Katie start dating again soon? Who could you see her with?
