Breaking up is hard to do, but Hoda Kotb is back in the dating game.
Having been linked to lawyer Jay Blumenkopf, the NBC star went so far as to say on Bethenny Ever After in February 2012 that Blumenkopf was "the real thing."
Only the real thing didn't last.
"You know what, I was with someone for two years," Kotb, 48, tells PEOPLE. "Now I'm getting back in the groove. It's really fun again."

A gruesome scene unfolded outside the Today show on Thursday.
When a man threatened to harm himself at Rockefeller Plaza, security crews and police quickly responded, but not before the man cut his own wrist with a knife.
Matt Lauer addressed the incident on-air, as the anchors had originally planned a segment outdoors.
"A short time ago a man out there tried to harm himself with a knife, he did manage to cut himself, he was controlled by our security team out there," Lauer said on Today. "However he did harm himself in some way, he's now being attended to."

They were an unlikely pair at first: serious Dateline reporter Hoda Kotb and performer Kathie Lee Gifford, who shot to fame as Regis Philbin's morning chat show partner of 15 years.
Combined, the co-anchors have energized the once-stale fourth hour of the Today show since 2008. The chatty hosts drink wine, dish on celebs (and themselves) and share heartfelt girlfriend wisdom to a growing group of fans.
Their partnership is chronicled in the June-July issue of AARP The Magazine, which has the supportive TV colleagues appearing on the cover in bathing suits and wide grins.

While the news is still playing out on the future of NBC's Tonight Show, with Jimmy Fallon set to succeed Jay Leno, now comes the revelation that the network's half-a-billion-dollar-a-year morning franchise, the Today show, nearly lost its No. 1 star: Matt Lauer.
Though currently the show is going through a turbulent period in the aftermath of Ann Curry's departure and its ratings slip to ABC rival Good Morning America, Lauer, 55, was set to jump ship to ABC last year, when reports surfaced that Ryan Seacrest was possibly going to replace him on Today, reports New York magazine, in the issue hitting newsstands Monday.
