Singer Paula Abdul is looking for love - so she can settle down and start a family before it's too late.
Abdul has been single since splitting from restaurant owner J.T. Torregiani last summer (08), and she admits she's ready to find a man again.
But the twice-wed 46 year old isn't interested in marrying once more - she's happy to settle for a long-term love affair.
Abdul tells OK! magazine, "I tried marriage and it didn't work too well for me, but I would very much like to find a soulmate. I look at couples like Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell and see what I would like to have: a beautiful lasting relationship that doesn't require a piece of paper."
And kids are in her plans too: "I'd love to have children with that soulmate. Adoption is definitely an option."
Abdul was married to actor Emilio Estevez from 1992 to 1994 and Brad Beckerman from 1996 to 1997.
