Sorry, ladies! Olympic hunk Ryan Lochte isn't looking for love.

"Having a girlfriend right now would be out of the question," he told PEOPLE at the U.N. Global Leadership Awards Gala in New York Wednesday. "I would like to settle down and have a family. But I'm only 24. Definitely not any time soon!"

What's keeping the sexy swimmer out of the dating pool?

Since winning his two gold medals (and two bronzes) in Beijing, "I haven't had a lot of time," he explained. "I've been traveling all over. I've only been at my house for two days."

When his schedule calms down, what will Lochte look for in a mate? "I'm all about having fun," he said. "[I want] a girl who can make me laugh."

In the meantime, Lochte is focused on his other passion: Fashion. "I've always loved clothes, shoes," he added. "I'd like to try to get into that. I gave Speedo ideas for the T-shirts and board-shorts we wore at the Olympics."
