The Cougar Town actress split from husband David Arquette in October 2010 after 11 years of marriage, and said that she has remained single since their relationship ended.
"I have not had a man since David... No guy has asked me out," Cox said during an appearance on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show on Wednesday (February 8). "Right now, I'm not quite ready to date. I'm getting closer... as things become more final in my life with David."
However, Cox went on to reveal that Arquette, who she recently described as her "favourite person in the world", has been more than encouraging about her new romantic 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]," she explained.
Cox previously denied rumours that she is dating Cougar Town co-star Josh Hopkins.
She has joked that she would be interested in castmate Dan Byrd if they didn't play mother and son on the show.
