Is Shailene Woodley Dating after break-up with Ex? Her Dating History

Ever since breaking up with her beau, we’re all curious about Shailene Woodley’s current relationship status. Has she jumped into the dating scene in 2020 or perhaps she has a new love affair in 2020?

She recently broke up with now-ex Ben Volavola but what about Shailene Woodley’s boyfriend in 2020.

Let’s find the answer and along the way, know why she separated from her ex, her sexuality, and her dating history.

Who Is Shailene Woodley Boyfriend after break-up?

Shailene Woodley has always been open about her relationships, unlike other celebrities. And as of 2020, the California native is currently single and not interested in jumping into the dating scene. More on this later!

Scrolling through the Instagram feed, we don’t see any potential suitors on her Instagram posts.

Besides, amid this Covid-19 lockdown, the Divergent star has been learning some new skills.

During her appearance at the Jimmy Fallon Show, Shailene stated she is learning Spanish and how to do a handstand.

According to her, it’s been a lifelong dream of her to become fluent in Spanish. Furthermore, she told Jimmy about feeling jealous as the ‘fitspo people’ on Insta can do handstands and she can’t.

Shailene Wants to Remain Single for a While

As we told you earlier, Shailene has no boyfriends at present and has decided to not involve herself in a relationship for the time being. Her bold decision was somehow influenced by her recent role in the movie, Endings, Begining.

Shailene now doesn’t feel any pressure to get back into the dating scene and wants to remain single for some time. In an interview with the New York Times, she maintained,

“We’re societally conditioned to assume that one person can be our end-all, be-all. This is a concept I’ve been thinking about often right now, because I’m very much single, and I’ve chosen to be single for a while.”

Hard to believe, Woodley came to this conclusion after starring in the movie wherein she has two love interests, Sebastian Stan and Jamie Dornan.

They called it quits after going out for more than 2-years.
