Emily Maynard: 'I'm Under No Pressure to Find a Guy'

Former Bachelorette star Emily Maynard got engaged twice in two years on TV, only to end up heartbroken and alone when her most recent relationship, with fiance Jef Holm, ended last October.

So it's not surprising that the 27-year-old isn't rushing to try and find Mr. Right.

The single mom reveals in an interview with the Huffington Post that she has her hands so full with daughter Ricki, that after the 8-year-old goes to bed, the last thing she feels like doing at the end of a long day is "to get dressed, go out and make small talk" on a date.

"Right now, I am under no pressure to find a guy," says the jewelry designer, whose engagement to Bachelor Brad Womack ended in 2011.

"I'm figuring it out on my own," says Maynard, who was pregnant with her daughter when her first love, NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, died in a plane crash in 2004. "But I will say this: When I do find him, this man will be the best, because he'll be someone who adds something pretty spectacular to our lives."
