‘Friends’ star Matthew Perry talks dating life, being a dad

Matthew Perry is still searching for the One and isn’t afraid to find love.

The “Friends” star, 53, broke off an engagement to literary manager Molly Hurwitz last year, however, he still desires to be a husband and a father.

He detailed his past relationships as well as addiction issues in his latest memoir, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing.”

“That was me afraid,” Perry noted about ending his engagement in a recent profile for People. “That is what I manifest, something that’s wrong with them. And then I break up with them.”

The Canadian native went on: “But there can’t be something wrong with everyone. I’m the common denominator. I left first because I thought they were going to annihilate me.”

Perry has been in high-profile relationships with Lizzy Caplan, Yasmine Bleeth and Julia Roberts.

He’s now looking for a soulmate with qualities including being “self-supporting.”

Perry also admitted that he has been “burned a few times by women who wanted my money, not really caring about me.”

“A sense of humor, beautiful inside and out, caring. This is really important, somebody who can have a back and forth with me,” he added.

The sitcom star is swiping left on anyone who is in the relationship for his money. “Somebody who has their own wealth is a pretty key component for me,” Perry said.

He then confessed to having “a tremendous amount of fear” about falling in love, however, “through a lot of work, I’ve got over that fear. I’m going to learn as I go.”

Perry continued: “The thing that’s changed about me is I have no interest in hanging out with somebody that I don’t know or somebody that I’m not that into. The next person I really take seriously is somebody that I’m going to be in love with and not be scared by the things that used to scare me.”

“But there can’t be something wrong with everyone. I’m the common denominator,” Perry said.

As for being a father sometime down the road, Perry thinks he’d “be great” at it. “I grew up with a lot of little kids around me, and that’s probably why, but I can’t wait,” he pointed out.

“I’m not run by the fear I used to be run by so everything’s kind of different,” he said. “I’m feeling more confident and I’m not afraid of love anymore, so the next girl I go out with better watch out.”

Also in his book, the “17 Again” actor got candid about his Vicodin abuse issues and how at 49, he nearly died from a gastrointestinal perforation and spent months in the hospital.

“Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing” will be available Nov. 1.
