You wonder whether you're going through a phase, or whether something is really not working, or if it's just another hill."Bullock has also dated a few of her co-stars, admitting to in 2003 that movie sets are "breeding grounds for that kind of stuff, so you just have to have a good set of rules going into it." (No.
1: stay away from the co-stars who are in relationships.)"It's the greatest dating service on the planet," she said.
"You take two people who normally can't leave the house, who don't know if people are with them for the right reasons, and they get paired up because they have chemistry, and they happen to fall in love."Not exactly excluding actors from the picture, she also told the mag, "I love people who are artistic, confident, and even cocky but with an underlying modesty that is humbling.
They also have to have a wicked sense of humor, and I have to feel challenged.

"It's like they say, there's one person in your life, and Tate and I are closer than any two people I've ever experienced in my life.I think we spend too much time looking for things that are more things that society wants us to look for and that we get from a magazine rather than that are really worth it... Somebody you can admire and be proud of and sit back and go, 'this is my man.'And whether or not he's a millionaire, or he's a painter, a musician, or somebody who just, you know, shucks clams, it's that respect level that we forget to look for."There haven't been any clam shuckers in the mix (not professional ones, anyway), but when Bullock was just kinda doing her her thing in the dating department and making her way in Hollywood, she was a wellspring of information. (Yeah, Tate Donovan was kinda gingery back in the day...)Over the years, she has candidly admitted to having once sent herself flowers to jog a guy's interest in her (it worked), to a pattern of attracting guys with the best intentions, to her tendency to put the guy first and herself second, and to her belief in the adage that the best way to get over someone is to meet someone else.She revealed to in 1996 that her first-ever boyfriend's initials were G. "I'm not saying go out and sleep with them," she clarified to . I don't need to find a man to progress as a human being. And if I happen to outgrow him, or he outgrows me, that's what happens.We're friends." Adding "just" would "probably be a bit of a lie," she admitted."So I'd say we're friends."She said that Gosling had helped her, a self-professed OCD type, "to chill.So much joy." interviewer noted that Bullock had never used the word "just," as in "just friends," when talking about Mc Conaughey, because that would have been not quite truthful.
