After just a few years of marriage, DWTS pro Cheryl Burke and actor Matthew Lawrence have parted ways. Divorce is always a difficult time, but Cheryl is doing her very best to put herself back out there. She even launched a brand new podcast exploring her newfound single life.

But now, it appears that the 38-year-old has stepped back into the dating pool. Keep reading to see what she thinks about searching for love after ending her marriage.

Cheryl Burke is lonely and ready to meet new people

Cheryl Burke had a pretty successful run on Dancing With The Stars last year. She and her partner Cody Rigsby finished in 3rd place, even after they both caught COVID-19 and missed a week of performances.

But sadly, Cheryl just wasn’t as lucky in love as she was in the ballroom. And she’s really ready to meet someone new.

“I can totally numb through productivity all I want, but at the end of the day, you know, when I close my eyes and go to bed, it is kind of lonely,” the dancer said on her latest episode of Burke In The Game. “I wouldn’t mind having a text relationship with someone or even just someone to flirt with.”

But of course, finding someone new isn’t always so easy. Life with her pup Ysa is great, but Cheryl wouldn’t mind having a romantic partner too.

“I am open to definitely starting to date, slowly but surely,” she continued. “However, not so sure yet about these dating apps, but I think that might be the only way because I have left my house a few times and it’s not that easy to meet people, right. So, we’ll see what happens.”

Cheryl hasn’t said whether or not she plans to return to Season 31 this fall. But who knows? Maybe she will find love with her new dance partner. She definitely wouldn’t be the first pro to do that. Artem Chigvintsev and Nikki Bella are engaged and have a little boy together, years after they competed on Season 25 together.

The pro dancer is always open and honest with her followers

Cheryl Burke’s fans really appreciate her candidness. She’s always been upfront and honest about her feelings, from her addiction battles to her abortion story.

In light of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, the DWTS pro thought it was important to open up and share her own abortion story.

“If it wasn’t for places like Planned Parenthood, I would be a mother⁠—and I wouldn’t have been a great mother,” Cheryl told the world on Instagram. “I got an abortion while I was going through a really huge transition in my life.”

No matter what lies ahead for Cheryl Burke, her fans wish her all the best.
