“Think Like a Man Too” star Taraji P. Henson may be gorgeous and successful, but that doesn’t mean her dating life is a breeze. In a recent interview, Taraji opens up about her dating woes and revealed she had to call off a romance with a man after she realized he was a groupie.

She tells Page Six:

“Hard to maneuver when you’re in show business. It shrinks the search pool. I don’t want an actor. I want a life partner. A real one. I had a guy, but cut to the chase. He was starstruck. They fall for the lady on-screen.”

Taraji says her dating woes have been so terrible that she’s considering looking for a mate abroad:

“Face it, I don’t wake up looking like Beyoncé. I think I’ll have to start hunting abroad. Maybe get off the Northern Continent. I know you just cannot have two narcissists together.”


  1. Well at least she realized that guy was only in to her because she’s famous before she ended up marrying him.

  2. I love me some Taraji she seems so down to earth. She is speaking the truth dating is hard nowadays doesn’t necessarily mean anything is wrong with women. Lets just face facts a lot of men are gay(no shade),want you take care of them, unfaithful, I can go on and on. So I understand her dating woes lol.

  3. I know everything will all come together for her in due time, but I can’t help but wish it happens sooner rather than later. Hell, I wish it’ll be sooner than later for ME too!!! LOL, but I think Taraji’s great and deserves exactly what she’s looking for. There aren’t too many celebrities I sincerely like. She’s a gem.

  4. I can’t say I blame Taraji. I’m thinking about getting my swirl on as well. There’s nothing wrong with that. Love is love and it sees no color. Good luck to her on her dating endeavors!!!
