Actress Mischa Barton is learning to "embrace" life as a single girl since her split from rocker TAYLOR LOCKE last month (Sep08).
The former The O.C. star admits it's rare for her to be out of a relationship, but she's enjoying having some time to herself.
She says, "I'm not used to being single, but it's really nice. It's great, actually.
"Just embrace it. It's important to breathe for a minute."
