From People:

 As inmate Piper Chapman on Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black, Taylor Schilling has had plenty of relationship issues. In real life, the 31-year-old actress says the public’s interest in her dating life has taken some getting used to.

“It’s so weird,” Schilling tells PEOPLE exclusively. “It’s so out of thin air.”

The actress says she’s currently not in a relationship, but “if I was in a relationship I was happy with, I’d love to talk about it. But I don’t like to date. It takes a lot for me to be into somebody. By default I’m a monogamist. I want a partner in crime.”

As for reports last year that linked Schilling to Portlandia star Carrie Brownstein, the actress demurs, but says “I have absolutely nothing to hide.”

For now, the New York City-based star is focused on her work – and is thrilled that fans love the show.

“It’s an astonishing experience,” says Schilling of Orange‘s critical success. “There’s a baked-in level of fear and insecurity I have about wanting to be liked, wanting my work to be liked. Now, I feel like Sally Field accepting that Oscar. People like me! It’s a concrete validation that I’m on the right path.”

Orange Is the New Black premieres Friday on Netflix.
