It's going to take more than a breakup to get Eva Longoria down.

The Desperate Housewives star, who recently split from boyfriend Eduardo Cruz, tells PEOPLE that she's still a sucker for love.

"I don't really have a philosophy on love," Longoria said at the Pepsi NEXT launch event in New York's Times Square Thursday, adding, "but I am a hopeless romantic."

Longoria, 37, and Cruz, 27, dated for more than a year before they decided to split last month. But the two seem to be on great terms: they had a cozy post-split date in Los Angeles last weekend.

One thing's for sure: whomever she dates next has to have a funny bone. "I love a good sense of humor," Longoria said.

And her top turn-off? Misogyny. "I'm such a feminist," she says. "That doesn't bode well with me."

But dating will have to take a backseat as Longoria gears up for her numerous TV and film projects, and the end of her run on Wisteria Lane.

"I think I'm in denial right now," Longoria said of eighth and final season of Desperate Housewives. "It's going to be sad, but I'm excited to move on."
