Julianne Hough is ready to start dating again.

The 'Safe Haven' star - who split from her boyfriend of almost three years Ryan Seacrest last month - was spotted flirting with 23-year-old 'Magic Mike' star Alex Pettyfer at the Coachella music festival over the weekend, where she was overheard telling friends she can't wait to date again.

A source told Life & Style magazine: ''Julianne and Alex were flirting a lot.

''She was drinking vodka cocktails all night and by midnight she was standing on the back of a couch with her friends, dancing like crazy and rubbing up against [Alex].''

The insider added: ''Julianne was gabbing away with friends saying she's so excited to start dating again.''

The 24-year-old blonde beauty later opened up about her relationship status and assured friends that she and 'American Idol' host Ryan, 38, are over, saying: ''That deal is done''.

The former professional dancer was recently said to have broken up with Ryan because he didn't want to get married.

A source previously said: ''He just wouldn't propose. [However] Ryan was this close to looking for rings. He did want to marry her. Julianne is the only girl Ryan allowed him to get serious with. He's so upset that it's over.

''I can't tell you how many times she dropped everything to see him. Julianne couldn't compete with everything he had going on.

''Ryan loved how independent she was but she also got busy. Not like she was sitting home waiting for him.''
