Lance Bass may be a successful matchmaker for his pals, but unfortunately he's having trouble working the same magic when it comes to his own love life.

"I'm never really good with matching myself, but I'm dead-on with matching my friends," Bass, 29, told us the other day at the John Varvatos 7th Annual Stuart House Benefit. "I'm always trying to play matchmaker."

Case in point?

His 24-year-old Dancing With the Stars pal Cheryl Burke.

Matchmaker Lance set Burke up with her new beau, 21-year-old Abercrombie & Fitch model Maxwell Zagorski.

"I never really plan anything," Bass said. "It's just one of those spur-of-the-moment things, like, Oh, I think they would be good for each other. I never like to force anything."

Bass' dating history includes Amazing Race winner Reichen Lehmkuhl, model Pedro Andrade and, most recently, personal trainer Sebastian Leal.

For the record, Bass is looking for someone with whom to start a family. "I think everyone dreams of that nice romantic wedding," he has told us. "And I love kids. I want to adopt and I want to have my own."

Meanwhile, he offers up some simple advice for the new batch of contestants on Dancing With the Stars. "Get as much sleep as you can," said Bass, who waltzed his way into third place last season. "And get some Epsom salts, because you're going to need it."
