It's been nearly a month since Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Tom Schwartz confirmed they are ending their marriage (Katie later filed for divorce in late March). And in a new podcast appearance, Katie is offering up her take on dating again.

Katie recently opened up about the split on an episode of the We Met at Acme podcast, via Us Weekly, sharing where she stands on getting back out there to date after spending over a decade with Tom. "You would think after being with someone for 12 years and all this that you would be not ready for that, but I feel like I am," she said, sharing what kind of partner she's looking for these days. "[Someone who] isn't worried about what every single person in the room thinks and how they're feeling... And someone who's gonna prioritize me and support my feelings and my emotions, someone who doesn't prioritize, you know, partying."

In the interview, she added that since she and Tom are still living together following the split, there are some "obstacles" to dating again, and she further noted that the dating landscape is completely different from the last time she was single.

"It's a different world out there. So I'm like, ‘What do you even do?’ I feel like I'm totally out of my element. … When I met Tom, dating apps weren't even around then," she said. "I used to just meet people the old-fashioned way."

Katie also revealed how she would feel if and when Tom started dating again. "It would be, like, weird, but I don't think I'd go crazy. I don't think I would feel hurt. I don't think I would feel betrayed," she said. "I think as long as she wasn't a psycho or, like, as long as she was a good person that was going to be nice… I mean, I can't say that I would be upset."

On the We Met at Acme podcast, Katie also addressed the events that led to the split, noting that it was late last summer and last fall when she started to feel a shift.

"It started to creep in — these thoughts, you know, but I think maybe, subconsciously, I've been feeling them longer, but I didn't know what they meant or wasn't feeling them correctly, if that makes sense. They were there, but I was sort of just turning my cheek to it. I was not wanting to see it for what it was," she said. "It wouldn't have been one thing [that he could do to fix it]. I had been expressing my feelings and where I felt that I was, again, not getting my needs met, and where I thought I was being hurt by some of the behavior, and I don't think he understood or resonated or agreed with [it]. It would just require a shift and all of that. … I understand you can't really, like, change a person."

Since sharing the news of the breakup, the former couple have been feeling the support of their friends. When Lala Kent appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohenshe offered her take on the breakup, which you can check out below.
