“Maybe a hit-and-run is a better way to go, for now, until you say to yourself, ‘Now I really want someone to just be part of this,'” Goldberg suggested.
“Right now, that may not be what you’re looking for, which is probably why you’re doing fine.”
In October, during an episode of Barrymore’s talk show, she got candid about her personal life and said that she has abstained from sex since splitting with ex-husband Kopelman.
The former couple shares two daughters – Olive and Frankie.
The “50 First Dates” star additionally opened up about her thoughts in a blog post on intimacy after a fan claimed the actress “hates sex.”

“So for the record, I do not hate sex!” she wrote. “I have just finally come to the epiphany that love and sex are simply not the same thing I searched my whole life for…” Barrymore expressed.
“Also, when you grow up and are in a marriage with kids, and you think you’ll only be with this one person for the rest of your life and then that doesn’t happen? It rocked me to my core, to put it lightly. But I am lucky enough to have my cup runneth over in the love department: I have my two daughters, and for the first time ever in my life, I’m actually including self-love, too.”
