American Idol star Paula Abdul is looking for love so she can settle down and start a family of her own, before it's too late. Abdul has been single since splitting from J.T. Torregiani last summer, and she is admitting that she's ready to find a man once again. But the twice divorced Paula isn't interested in marrying once more, she's very happy to settle for a long-term love affair. Abdul tells OK! magazine, "I tried marriage and it didn't work too well for me, but I would very much like to find a soul mate. I look at couples like Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell and see what I would like to have: a beautiful lasting relationship that doesn't require a piece of paper." Kids are also in her plans: "I'd love to have children with that soul mate. Adoption is definitely an option."
