Stassi Schroeder
is single and ready to mingle!

This season on Vanderpump Rules, we’ll see the aftermath of the 28-year-old reality star’s split from longtime beau, radio host Patrick Meagher.

“I have quite a few breakdowns,” Stassi revealed during a recent sit-down interview with ET. Even though she says we’ll never see Patrick on screen, the fashion blogger insisted, “Because he wasn't there to film with me, I feel like I had to really express myself even more so that people could understand what I was going through.”

Stassi admitted she “totally” thought Patrick was “the one” and that the pair was headed for marriage. Still, she isn’t ruling out the possibility of reconciling someday.

“Five years from now, 10 years from now, if we came back into each other's lives [maybe]... but I'm using my head about the situation.”

The Straight Up With Stassipodcast host also made it clear – she’s still a big fan of her ex.

“I think he's a wonderful person… but right now, we do not mix well,” she admitted. “We fight. We fought way too much, it was way too up and down, we're both so stubborn… It's not like there wasn't enough love, that was there.”

Now, for the first time in a long time, Stassi is back in the dating game! But make no mistake, she’s set up some rules for herself.

“I'm really trying hard to not get in a serious relationship because that's what I do, that's what I always do,” she explained. “I go from one relationship to the next, and it's just so intense right away. I never experience just dating and being on my own and I said I want to give it at least a year of not having a boyfriend.”

For any potential male suitors out there, Stassi’s only non-negotiable? A sense of humor.

“The only thing I know for sure is that I like to laugh, and I like funny people so if someone is a dud, that's not really going to work for me.”

Stassi also opened up about a recent plastic surgery procedure, and how thrilled she is with the results. To learn more, watch the video below -- and make sure to tune into Vanderpump Rules every Monday night on Bravo at 9 p.m. ET.
