Nia Long keeps her secret crush under wraps.

The You People actress, 52, was a guest on The Drew Barrymore Show on Thursday as Barrymore revealed she had a secret date people for years without media attention.

Long then shared a secret of his own. “I’ve got my eye on one person,” she said, before clarifying that she’s “not saying” who.

She added, “I never say it.”

Barrymore, 47, responded by admitting: “I like dating. I really enjoy it.”

But Long didn’t feel the same way. “I’m so nervous,” she shared.

The talk show host then revealed she’s on dating apps – and swears by them, leaving Long stunned and intrigued.

“I’ve met some nice people on the apps!” Barrymore insisted, leading Long to ask about the men she’d met online.

“Comedy writers, one is an actor… but he’s also a director. This helps. You have to be responsible! Actors are very spoiled,” joked Barrymore.

“Very,” Long agreed, before adding, “I’ve never dated an actor.”

Barrymore and Long also agreed that they both like musicians and artists. Now, however, the talk show host said she was more concerned about a potential suitor’s creditworthiness, to which Long agreed.

In September, Long ended her long-term relationship with fiancé Ime Udoka, who was suspended from his role as head coach of the Boston Celtics after an alleged affair with a co-worker.

Long and Udoka, 45, had been engaged since 2015. In 2011 they had a son together – Kez Sunday Udoka. Long also has another son, 21-year-old Maasai Dorsey II, from a previous relationship with actor Maasai Dorsey.

Following their split, Long issued a statement exclusively to PEOPLE.

“The love and support of family, friends and community during this difficult time means so much to me,” Long said. “I ask that my privacy be respected as I process the recent events. Most importantly, I am a mother and will continue to focus on my children.”
