Though being a starlet in Hollywood can be difficult for some to maintain privacy while on the dating scene, Carson says that she hasn’t had an issue with it — but that’s because privacy is a priority for her.

“It’s been okay so far,” she says about her own dating life. “I go out on dates and I date. I think the key is, for me, keep privacy. I think it’s easier than you would think to keep things private. The second you post a photo, then you’re obviously announcing to the world,” she says.

Carson adds: “But I think privacy is really important to me. So my relationships, my friendships, I like to keep very private, just so it’s just for me.”
