It's been over three years Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler decided to split up, and now the reality star is navigating the dating world one day at a time.

"I’ll go on a first date with someone and sit there thinking, 'Could you be a stepfather to my children?' And then I’m like, 'No, you suck.' The good thing is I’m not going to waste my time. I have really high standards now because of my kids," the 36-year-old told Us Weekly in a new interview about her mindset.

The blonde babe, who shares sons Camden, 11, and Jaxon, 9, as well as daughter Saylor, 7 with Cutler, confessed the kiddos have only met "one person once because they were a fan of his."

"They asked me to go out with him so that they could meet him. I’m very open with them; they know what’s going on in my love life. And they have strong opinions!" she declared.

The Laguna Beach alum added that searching for someone is "not my priority, but I am open to it."

"Everyone tells me to get on the apps, but someone can be amazing on paper, and you meet them, and they’re a dud. I want that passion. I feel like if it’s meant to be, he’ll find me. I don’t know where — I hardly ever leave my house! Hopefully it will happen at the grocery store," she quipped.

"A lot of guys want to be needed, so I need someone who’s very confident. My life is really great. I love being on my own; I really do. So it has to be someone who can add joy to my life," she continued.

Though the Uncommon James founder has been on a handful of bad dates, she's said she's "lucky" with the men she's met so far. "I’ve gone out with all types of guys — actors, musicians, businessmen, Joe Schmo down the street … I’ve covered all the bases. This is the first time in my life I’ve been single. My first boyfriend was in eighth grade. Then I met my ex-husband at 23," she said.

Kristin Cavallari said she is reluctant to try the dating apps.

Earlier this year, Cavallari doubled down on the traits a potential partner must have.

"I'm looking for someone so secure, just so comfortable in their skin, and I really want a buddy, someone I can laugh with and have fun with," she said, adding that the person would be "very good to my kids and a good dad."
