Jennie Garth isn’t rushing back into romance.

“A lot of people have a ‘friend’ that they want to set me up with, so it’s kind of weird!” Garth told Entertainment Tonight Canada of her new life as a single woman.

“You can feel really bad about yourself when you’re going through a divorce. You can feel like a failure. And that’s not a good feeling. [By sharing my story] maybe it’ll help someone. I’ve gone through this and so can you,” she told PEOPLE in March.

As for dating right now, it doesn’t seem to be a priority for Garth. “I’m taking it slow …” she said.

The Jennie Garth: Little Bit Country star is more focused on life as a mom to daughters, Luca, 14, Lola, 9, and Fiona, 5.

“Every one of my girls is a different size and shape,” she said. “I want them to be comfortable in their own skin and be healthy minded.”
