Dating felt foreign to the newly single star. "It was new and weird. I hadn't dated when there was texting. I got married in 2003 and all of a sudden I'm like, 'Oh, right now you text somebody.' That was new. There were times when I was out with guys and I was like, 'Oh, I think I might be on a date, but I don't know," Poehler said. "I remember I was at dinner with John Stamos. I think if you just are around him you are...handsome men are really something else. First of all, they're so handsome. And John is..."
"Ridiculously handsome?" Stern asked.
"I was at a restaurant. We were having dinner and I was like, 'Oh, maybe this is a date!' But I didn't know," Poehler recalled, noting that the Full House actor had asked her to dinner. "But I kinda blew it."
Wait, really?! "I can't believe I'm telling this story, but it's Howard Stern, so there you go. We worked on a movie [They Came Together]. He did a little bit in a movie that I did and a bunch of us hung out. And then later on he's like, 'Let's go get dinner. And it was fine," said the former Saturday Night Live standout, who clarified that she "was separated" at the time. "I remember thinking like, 'Oh, s--t. Like, if this is really a date...' I think I was wearing a Leslie Knop top. I think I was wearing a shirt from work."
