Courteney Cox and David Arquette have continued to support each other since their separation in October 2010. Last month, the former couple stepped out for a celebratory dinner marking Arquette's year of sobriety. And when Arquette competed on "Dancing With the Stars" this past fall, Cox and daughter Coco cheered him on from the front row.

When Cox was a guest on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show Wednesday, she revealed that Arquette has been encouraging her to embrace single life: "He says to me, 'Courteney, it's time. Get out there.' He wants me to date now. He wants me to start my life, and he's comfortable with whoever that would be [with]."

But the 47-year-old "Cougar Town" actress admits she's not ready to re-enter the dating game, and has been celibate since her marriage ended. "I have not had a man since David ... No guy has asked me out," she claims.

However, she assures Stern that she'll be seeking romance again soon: "Right now, I'm not quite ready to date. I'm getting closer ... as things become more final in my life with David."
