Now that she's moving to New York for her new E! show, Kim Kardashian says she's thrilled to give the single life a real chance – and won't say no if friends want to set her up on dates.

"I never have really given it a shot to be single," the reality-TV star, who turns 30 later this month, tells Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show. "I tried to play that role, but I really wasn't single. And now, I'm really officially on my own, and I'm in a whole different city."

Since splitting with boyfriend Miles Austin and arriving in the Big Apple to film Kourtney and Kim Take New York, a new series premiering in January on E!, Kim says lots of her friends are trying to play matchmaker.

"Everyone is now trying to hook me up," she says. "In a way, since I hate meeting new people and I hate that first-dating thing, it's kind of reassuring to know, 'Okay, this [person] knows them, so maybe they're normal.' "

Whether or not she finds her one true love, Kardashian could be in the mood for romance as she and her sister establish a new Dash clothing store in Gotham. "I'd be down for some hookups," Kim says.

Whatever happens, it's great to have a change of scenery, anyway. "I am so excited," she says. "This couldn't have come at a more perfect time for me to just get out of my life [in Miami and L.A.] and start anew."
