It's no joke, Sarah Silverman still believes in love after the end of her Jimmy Kimmel romance.
"I'd like to find that person," the comedian, 39, tells Playboy in a new interview. "I think Jimmy and I had every intention of spending the rest of our lives with each other. I love love. It's my top priority. Jimmy will tell you. I'm a good girl."
Silverman, who is now dating Alec Sulkin, a writer for FOX's Family Guy, says she and Kimmel gave it their best shot in their two stints together between 2002 and 2009.
"We were together for so long and tried our best to make it work," she says. "I can think of him now and don't have that edgy feeling anymore. I just love him to pieces."

After going through a particularly awkward stretch of single life, Sarah Silverman discovered a man who isn't her type at all – and it seems to be working out great.
Her new boyfriend, the writer Alec Sulkin, is "the first guy in a decade who's given me any kind of compliment, like saying I'm pretty or anything," the comedian, 39, tells the new issue of Page Six Magazine, due out Thursday.
"He's really skinny. Usually I like pudgy, macho-ish guys," says Silverman, who dated talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel for much of the last decade. "But I think I mistook macho-ish for strong, emotionally. And I think it's really the opposite."

Looks like Sarah Silverman's fake hookup with Matt Damon is still paying off!
In September, the comedian won an Emmy for her hit song, "I'm F**king Matt Damon," and now the viral video nabbed her a best actress Webby award. Silverman was also honored with the best political video award for her "Great Schlep" video, a plea for Jewish kids to urge their grandparents to vote for Barack Obama.
Other high-profile Webby winners include Jimmy Fallon, who was named Webby person of the year for using the Internet, specifically his blog, to refine his talk show hosting skills before his late night debut. Lisa Kudrow won outstanding comedic performance for her Web-only series Web Therapy and rocker Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails was named Webby artist of the year.

Just days after Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman split for the second time, the late-night host was back to his usual hijinks.
In a playful debut appearance on The View Monday, Kimmel surprised the ladies when he walked out during the show's live broadcast from Walt Disney Studios dressed up as former View moderator Rosie O'Donnell.
Still, even being dressing in drag did not distract the ladies from the recent news about his personal life. When Sherri Shepherd asked about his split from Silverman, Kimmel kept his answer light.
"The only thing better than breaking up is going on The View right after you break up," Kimmel said. "It's really [like] living a dream."
So, why did Silverman dump Kimmel? "What do you mean, what happened? Look at me. What do you think happened? I'm a 41-year-old man with a bra filled with Koosh balls," he said. "I'm an imbecile. She couldn't date an imbecile anymore."
Asked if the relationship was really over, he said, "I don't know, ask her."

A second chance at love didn't work.
Despite a reconciliation that gave them both cause for laughs, late-night talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel, 41, and comedian Sarah Silverman, 38, have split, a source confirms to PEOPLE.
No reason was revealed for their second breakup. The funny duo dated for five years before they called it quits last July. But they rekindled their relationship just a few months later. "They're taking it slow," a source told PEOPLE last fall. "They're on the road back to being together."
The pair even managed to poke fun of their first split on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last October when she was a guest and they exchanged awkward silences and quips like, "Did you make sweet love to anyone while we were apart?"

Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel tapped their on-again, off-again relationship for comic fodder Thursday night.
During Silverman's appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the two shared several mock moments of awkward silence, punctuated by questions like, "Did you make sweet love to anyone while we were apart?"
Kimmel, 40, even showed off a tabloid story about the alleged reason behind their initial split. "This article says the reason we broke up is I found pictures of fat guys on your computer," Kimmel said.

Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman are back together.
"They're taking it slow," says a source. "They're on the road back to being together again."
The comedians, who ended their five-year relationship in July, have recently been spotted on dates on both coasts.
On Sept. 28, Kimmel, 40, and Silverman, 37, enjoyed a laughter-filled dinner together at L.A.'s Pattaya Thai Restaurant, says a source, and left holding hands.
Less than a week later, they attended pal Howard Stern's Oct. 3 wedding at New York City's Le Cirque restaurant, where Kimmel was spotted wrapping his arms around Silverman's waist and playfully grabbing her backside in plain view of photographers.
Reps for the comedians had no comment.

Sarah Silverman may have won an Emmy award for a song boasting of a romance with Matt Damon, but it was her ex-boyfriend, Jimmy Kimmel, whom the comedian thanked from the stage.
"Let's be honest, Matt Damon had very little to do with this being popular," Silverman, 37, said while accepting her award at the Creative Arts Emmys for the salty music video "I'm F------ Matt Damon" at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
"Thanks to the person for whom this whole video was made: Jimmy Kimmel, who broke my heart – ohh, who'll always have a place in my heart," Silverman continued.
