“There was something so normal about it.”

Swift was also in attendance at Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, where the Chiefs picked up a victory.

“Some people may come out of a marriage or relationship and find themselves in another relationship in the near future. There is nothing wrong with that! Not at all. I’m not judging! I’m celebrating their journey !Because for some people it really works. It didn’t work for me,” Barrymore wrote in a blog post at the time. “I needed to stay very single and honoring and in a sort of state of mourning the loss of a nuclear family that I had sworn to have for my daughters and finding grace and acceptance and that what would be our new normal of a blended family.”.
“It took a while. I’m proud of myself for taking this time,” she continued. “It’s what I, as an individual and no one other than me, had to do and I honored that and I respect myself for that, as I respect anyone for their choices. I just came from to laugh about how it’s not my personal priority to be with a partner, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be one day. I need time. And my view on sex has really changed .
