“I started dating on my birthday and promised myself I would be single for a year and just date and have fun,” the model, who turned 50 in February, tells PEOPLE exclusively.
“I just came out of a divorce, and it’s hard going through a divorce.
There’s a certain privilege you get from turning 50. People have to respect that, with age comes wisdom.
I wanted to get back to Cynthia and be in that space for awhile.” “I still got some more months to go until I’m done dating,” she says.“I am having fun and I’m meeting great guys.” Just because she’s playing the field a bit doesn’t mean the experience of getting out there has been easy.“Everything has changed,” says Bailey, who joined the celebrity dating app Raya. ’ ” “These guys, they don’t care at all about my age,” Bailey jokes.“I always follow my heart, but I’ve learned to stop thinking and go with my gut,” she says. Especially for me being single, I feel like it’s a rebirth. The first 50 were for my daughter, for my family, for my husband, for everyone else. “I feel like at this point in my life, I’m the only person that knows what’s best for Cynthia. Now I get to be a little greedy.” As for the guy who eventually gets her heart, Bailey isn’t worried about finding him. “I’m looking for love, but I don’t really have a timeline for it.
