The country singer -- who split up with Crist just a few days before the start of this season of DWTS -- got candid about her love life in a pre-taped package on Monday, before the first of her two performances of the night.
"I am single for the first time as an adult, so I am not trying to hurry love," Alaina told her pro partner, Gleb Savchenko, during rehearsals. "I will say that. I am enjoying it."
"I went through a break-up two weeks before I came on this show. It's kind of a crazy time," Alaina explained.
However, it seems that competing on the show has really given her some emotional support.
"Being on Dancing with the Stars has been the perfect recipe for healing my broken heart," the songstress shared. "It's like the show is my new boyfriend. I'm dating Dancing With the Stars and it's going great."
Alaina and Savchenko ended up earning a 34 out of 40 for their quickstep and a 36 for their rumba -- set to the Backstreet Boys hit "I Want It That Way" -- for a total of 70 out of 80, and they ended up moving on to next week's semifinals.
