Kirstie Alley Looking for Love

What's a girl to do after losing 100 pounds? Well if you're Kirstie Alley, it's looking for love!

But the single, newly slimmed-down Alley wants to clarify that she is looking for an actual love connection -- not just sex.

"The easiest thing on this planet is to [find sex], but I don't see the merit in that," she tells People magazine. "What I'm looking for is someone who loves me deeply and is madly in love with me, for me."

The 60-year-old actress, whose dramatic weight loss since joining last season's Dancing with the Stars has kept her in the headlines, also stresses that not just any man will do -- she wants a loyal, chivalrous mate.

"I wasn't looking for the right thing before. … I want someone who has my back. And if I'm being attacked, they fricking attack back. Now, that's bravery," she says.

And is Alley confident she will eventually find Mr. Right?

"Certainly," she tells the mag. "For me, it's all about love."
