The Real Reason Why Khloe Kardashian Is Taking a Break From Dating
After watching Khloe Kardashian get her heart broken in a very public fashion, we’re all anxious for her to find happiness with someone else.
Doesn’t she deserve a man that will treat her right, finally? But it appears Khloe doesn’t seem to be in a rush to date anytime soon. Here’s what we know about Khloe’s current thoughts around dating.
Khloe Kardashian’s relationship history
Khloe’s first husband was Los Angeles Lakers player, Lamar Odom. The pair met in August 2009 and started a whirlwind romance that led to their marriage just one month later.
A source told People at the time, “It may seem like a quickie wedding to everyone else, but Khloe knows what she wants. She and Lamar started talking about getting married really soon after they met. They knew this was it.”
Fans watched the relationship between Khloe and Odom unfold on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, from the proposal, to the wedding and their life after. Soon, the couple were even given their own spinoff, titled Khloe & Lamar.
However, by 2013 the relationship began to crumble. First there were the cheating accusations brought against Odom, then his struggles with substance abuse were brought to light.
Khloe tried to stick by him, but it all became too much and the couple divorced.
Khloe then had a series of mild relationships, including rapper French Montana and Houston Rockets player James Harden, which ended with cheating rumors against Harden.
In 2016, Khloe began dating Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson. The couple hit it off, despite Thompson’s ex-girlfriend being pregnant with his first child. In fact, Khloe and Thompson soon discussed having children of their own.
On a June 2017 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe admitted she had stopped taking her birth control. “Tristan and I definitely talk about starting a family,” she said, “He wants to have about five or six kids with me and that’s lovely. We could start with one and we could grow from there.”
And that’s exactly what they did. The pair welcomed their daughter, True Thompson, into the family on April 12, 2018. Unfortunately, the happy event was scared by cheating rumors. Despite this, Khloe was determined to work through their problems for the sake of their baby girl.
However, in February of this year, Thompson was again hit with cheating accusations, this time with Kylie Kardashian’s BBF, Jordyn Woods. The betrayal was too much for Khloe and the couple broke up for good.
Khloe isn’t ready to date yet, but hasn’t given up on marriage
Recently, Khloe appeared on the Divorce Sucks podcast with Laura Wasser. She told the host that she wasn’t in a hurry to start dating again. “I want to filter through what I think I need to filter though,” Khloe said, “But my focus is on True. I don’t have a sense of urgency to be in a relationship or even to go on a date. I don’t want to.”
However, when asked about if she would ever get married again, Khloe paused, but said clearly, “Yes.”
Khloe is ready to stop dating basketball players
Khloe has been cheated on by three basketball players, so the question on many people’s mind is, “Why does she continue to date them?”
Leave it to Jimmy Kimmel to ask the question everyone is thinking. When Khloe sat down for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! she was asked, “Is it time that you stop dating basketball players?” To which Khloe responded, “I don’t know. I like what I like. What can I say?”
However, since that time, a source has told Hollywood Life that Khloe is starting to consider changing her dating habits.
“Khloe is tired of being embarrassed by NBA players and is ready to date differently,” the source said. “Khloe is determined to never get hurt this way again. She knows she deserves better and so she’s rethinking her approach to love and relationships.”
It sounds like Khloe may be finally taking advice from her grandmother. On Jimmy Kimmel Live! Khloe had told Kimmel that her grandmother, MJ, told her that she needs to start dating accountants.
Khloe advises men to change their ways
On Instagram recently, Khloe posted the quote, “Dear men, Close your eyes, Imagine you have a daughter, Imagine she is dating a guy just like you. Did you smile? No. Then change.”
Even though Thompson was not mentioned in the post anywhere, many people thought that it was a direct dig at him. But even so, it offers some insight into what Khloe is feeling and the kind of men she plans to look for in the future.
After being hurt so many times, it seems that Khloe is going to be much more careful about the men she chooses, going forward.
Khloe is having a blast on vacation
Sometimes the best way to forget about our problems and get a new perspective is to take a vacation, and that’s exactly what Khloe did.
Her Instagram account has recently been filled with photos from a vacation to the Turks and Caicos Islands. Kourtney joined her on the trip, and it appeared the women are enjoying the single life, and having fun.
That’s probably the best thing for them right now. Hopefully Khloe can use this time to heal so that when she does move on, it will be a healthy relationship that she can finally be happy in.
