“It was hard to live in the moment in 2022,” she continues.
“There was always someplace else you could be. Someone else you could be with.”From there, a glimpse into Sophie`s rocky dating life shows her journey to finding “the one” has been far from easy.”I know this might sound crazy, but I`ve been on 87 Tinder dates this year,” Duff says as Sophie, who`s retelling her latest dating story mishap to pals Jesse (Christopher Lowell) and Sid (Suraj Sharma).
“My last date was the worst of them.” And while Sophie`s love story is a crucial part of her journey, so are the lasting relationships she builds with her close friends.
