Extracted from a Rolling Stone Magazine interview April 2, 1998
"Sometimes I get upset and lonely, and it's sort of like, 'Wow, I'm the only single person left in America.' I can't commit to a serious relationship right now, but maybe it's because I haven't met the right person." - Sarah Michelle Gellar

SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR
Cosmo: So what about fellas?
Sarah Michelle Gellar: What about them?
C: Is it a good time now in your life that way?
C: I mean, I know you don't like to talk about your private life...
SMG: You know, it's very hard for me to meet people.
C: Has it gotten harder or easier with your success?
SMG: Oh, it's definitely gotten harder, yeah. I can't meet some guy at a bar and give him my phone number.
C: Do you find that you meet people that you normally wouldn't meet, like actors, because you have some sort of exciting job?
SMG: Well, I still haven't been able to meet Joseph Fiennes, so it's not working for me.
C: So you're single at the moment?
SMG: Yeah. I'm dating. I mean, it's hard. It's very funny, and I finally realized this. It's like [people ask,] 'Why aren't you in a serious relationship?' Hey, I'm 22 years old. This is my time to have fun. I'm not ready to settle down, I know that.
C: Do you like actors, or do you have any rules about dating other actors?
SMG: You can never say never. I am not the greatest fan of it, and it's hard, because I have a tendency to gravitate towards people who aren't in the business, and it's very hard, because I don't really meet that many people who aren't in the business. So, I try not to date actors. I think it's a very difficult relationship, and sometimes it works fabulously. It just depends if you're the two right actors. Have I dated actors? Uh huh.
C: It seems there [should be] so many people you can rule out [to date] just by the fact that you're serious. Does that make sense?
SMG: I'm not a partier. I like to stay at home and cook and hang out with my friends. I read constantly - nine out of ten times I buy the book and I haven't seen the movie. So yes, you can rule out people, because if someone is a big, you know, partying actor, it's just - there's no point, because there is no compatibility there.
C: What kind of guys are you attracted to?
SMG: I'm a talent whore.
SMG: Yeah. I can fall in love with people's talents.
C: Do you like musicians? Have you ever fallen for somebody without knowing what they look like based on a song or a book?
SMG: I wouldn't say 'fell in love.'
C: I guess 'got curious' about it.
SMG: Oh sure.
C: Felt like a kindred thing.
C: Now if you like somebody are you a go-getter?
SMG: I'm bad. I always have something to say, but I can wind up having nothing to say.
SMG: I know, isn't that embarrassing?
C: Has there ever been something kind of crafty that you did in order to get somebody's attention?
SMG: I'm not good at that. I don't call attention to myself. I mean, look at me, I'm not exactly - when I walk into a room I don't need everyone to turn around and look at me. I'd rather not. Once, someone sent me flowers, an agent or a manager or somebody, and then I told this guy they were from somebody else. I said, 'Oh, they're from a friend.'
C: And did it work?
SMG: Yeah. I use that line a lot. 'Oh, it's from a friend,' or 'I was with a friend.' That line works very well.
C: Are you a good flirt?
SMG: I'm a good flirt if I'm not interested.
C: If you're interested you get all freaked out?
SMG: And I can flirt with someone once I'm with him. Then I can flirt. It's just that initial, like if I see someone and think he's cute, I'm not the greatest flirter. Although my best friend says I am.
C: What did you learn about romance or love from the movies?
SMG: John Hughes killed high school for me. When I was 16, I was waiting for Jake Ryan (from Sixteen Candles) to come in a car with my cake. Jake Ryan didn't come. John Hughes killed me. And that was high school. I was going to be Amanda Jones (from Some Kind of Wonderful), and Eric Stoltz was going to bring me my diamond earrings and Jake Ryan was going to come.
C: Were they going to fight over you?
SMG: I don't know. I didn't get that far. John Hughes ruined me.
C: Are you romantic or more realistic about things like that?
SMG: A little bit of both. And it's funny, because the romantic part doesn't really fit my personality, when you think about it. The simple gestures can mean so much to me. I am very into sentiment. I used to have this running joke, I don't care about the birthday present, just send me a card. Write me a card. I keep all the cards.
