NEW YORK (AP) — Charlize Theron likes being single for the first time in her adult life.

The Oscar winning actress tells the December issue of Vogue magazine this is the “first time” she’s been unattached since she was nineteen. She used to go from one relationship to another — some within a month — saying she found a “comfort zone” being monogamous.

The 36-year-old Theron dated actor Stuart Townsend for nearly 10 years before their breakup in 2010. She says she pulled back on her career as an effort to save the union when the relationship began to go downhill, calling that “the priority” and that she “wouldn’t do it any different way.”

Theron is now ready to work with the romantic comedy “Young Adult” written by Diablo Cody and directed by Jason Reitman. It opens Dec. 16.

The December issue of Vogue magazine goes on sale Nov. 22.

    Well I guess it’s a good thing that I am a pre-op transgendered lesb1an male.

    Horrible news for straight men? You’re kidding right? My advice for any single, straight, American male that even considers a relationship with a post modern female? ‘Run, Forrest, Run’. They are way more trouble than they are worth. Makes one wonder why post modern women get all dressed up and spend so much time on their alleged ‘beauty’. For what? Self absorption is not an admirable trait; reminding us what we cannot have is no longer amusing or tantalizing. It has become boring and mundane.

    “Straight” Men?

    By trying so hard to be politically correct, the writer of this article is discriminating against bi-sexual men.

    Shame on you! Bi’s have rights too! How could you be so cold and callous, you’re a bigot!

    (For the less mentally inclined, that called sarcasm)
