Maria Bello: I've been on one date in my life

Maria Bello has confessed that her first blind date was "awful."

The actress, who turns 45 next month, claims that she has only ever been on one date before and it was not very successful.

Although she has had relationships in the past, Maria said that she has not had much experience actually dating.

"I've only gone on one date in my life," she told Life & Style. "I've never been married. I was 44-years-old when I went on my first date."

The Coyote Ugly star revealed that she even told her date about him being her first.

"I am not kidding you," Maria laughed. "I told the guy, 'Hey, this is my first date ever.' It was torment. I will never do it again. It was kind of a blind date. It was awful."

Maria dated Dan McDermott for two years but that ended in 2006. They have a son together. And her engagement to rocker Bryn Mooser ended in 2010 just before they were set to tie the knot.

"I didn't understand monogamy," Maria said about how she felt about the institution of marriage.

"I couldn't figure out how that lasted. And then I met Bryn and I started to understand the beauty of constancy and history and change and going on the roller-coaster with someone - of having a partner in life."
