Katie Holmes ready for dating, but nervous - report

katie-holmes-dating-getty.jpgKatie Holmes has been separated from Tom Cruise since the end of June 2012. And it sounds like she's maybe ready to get back in the dating pool. But she's nervous because she's gotten so accustomed to her new, freer lifestyle.

"Katie's in a dilemma, because she wants to date but is concerned where it could lead to from there," a family insider tells Radar Online. "She's worried that if she commits herself fully to another man, she will have to give up the freedom she's enjoying so much at the moment. As a single woman, she has no one controlling her nowadays, telling her what to do or who to see and she absolutely loves it!"

The insider continues, "However, at the same time, she also misses being with someone special to share experiences with and she doesn't want to be alone for the rest of her life. Katie's got Suri for the time being, and she is her best friend, but she does eventually want to find a man she can be that close with as well. She's just a little nervous and cautious about relationships still right now."

Who do you think the actress should set her sights on? Somebody famous? We feel like perhaps she'd be better off with a regular Joe.
