Online dating can really be a crapshoot, and Drew Barrymore know this first hand.

E! News is reporting that the famous actress has been trying online dating, but it didn’t work out quite how she would have liked.

While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Barrymore explained her struggles:

“Here’s the deal: Ever since I was a teenager and excited about the idea of dating someone, I always had fantasized about a blind date—which I had never and will never be able to have—on my side, at least,” Barrymore said. “When the whole dating apps started, I remember eHarmony said, ‘Answer 25 questions and we will place you.’ I was like, ‘What are the 25 questions? And who would they place me with?'”

However, she eventually tried using the dating service Raya, which a friend recommended. She said:

“I heard Amy Schumer saying she met her boyfriend on there. Then one night, I’m flying home by myself and I’m like, ‘Screw it! I’m going to fulfill my fantasy and go on a dating app! Do a blind date, but not really.’ So, I went on it and no one responded.”

It’s so hard to imagine that guys would ignore the beautiful Barrymore, but it really did happen. She explained:

“One guy wrote, ‘What is someone like you doing on an app like this?’ I was like, ‘Is that a compliment and an insult all wrapped ambiguously and super clearly in one fell swoop? OK, there’s that. Then I texted with this one guy and I said, ‘OK, sure, if you feel inclined to go for a drink, that’d be great. But zero pressure.’ Never, ever a response.”

Her most awkward moment was when her ex-husband, Will Kopelman, asked her why she was using it.

“He goes, ‘Why are you on Raya?’ I was like, ‘How do you know? I was on it for four days! Five days! How do you know I’m on Raya?’ He goes, ‘Because I just saw your profile. It came up on my phone.’ I go, ‘When?!’ And he goes, ‘Like two days ago.’ I was like, ‘Motherf–ker!’ I’m still on it! I’m still trying to get off of the site!”

While Raya didn’t seem to work for Drew Barrymore, at least she got some good stories out of it!
