Like the Jody Watley song, Ed Westwick is 'looking for a new love, baby.'

"I'm very single," the Gossip Girl star, 20, admitted at the John Adams premiere held at MOMA in NYC on March 3.

When OK! caught up with Ed back in October, he was deeply involved in a relationship with Louise Shaw, who hailed from his hometown of Stevenage, England. He bragged about making her a full English breakfast complete with bacon, eggs, sausage and baked beans.

But now that his situaton has changed, what does this dashing Brit look for in a woman?

"Good sense of style and confidence," he tells OK!. As for him, potential love interests should know he can't get enough of the board game Monopoly and doesn't dig McDonald's.

"That food is so bad at McDonald's," Ed says. "It's really not that great."

So what else can his dates expect? "I'm a lounge guy. I love playing pool. I love finding someplace where it's quiet enough that you can control the jukebox and get on with your life."

Ed also loves to hang with his Gossip Girl castmates Chace Crawford and Penn Badgely, but he stays away from alcohol — "I'm underage, man!"

Because his character is a villain on the show, Ed says some people are wary of him. How does he prove them wrong? "I take everybody I meet out to dinner," he jokes.
