Carl Radke is single and almost ready to mingle.

Nearly six months after the Summer House star shocked fans by calling off his engagement to costar Lindsay Hubbard, the Bravolebrity shared an update on his love life—or, rather, lack thereof.

"I was walking into the last summer, we were prepared to get married," Carl exclusively told E! News. "I do want to have a family and I do want to settle down, but who you get married to is one of the most important decisions you ever make. So, I'm going to take some time and heal. I'm going to focus on myself."

In fact, the 39-year-old wants to wait until after his breakup plays out on the reality show's upcoming eighth season before coupling up again.

"I think that person will come, but I'm not rushing or looking because there's still some emotional attachment," he added. "Rewatching it on TV and pursuing a new relationship while some of this is still brewing, to me that doesn't feel appropriate to open my heart to something else when I'm just not there yet."

However, he added, "Maybe by the summer time."

And now that he's moved out of the NYC apartment he and Lindsay shared, he's finally found a place to call his own.

"That day that we had that [breakup] conversation, I did talk to her dad and he recommended taking some space," he shared. "Since that day, I've been staying with friends, I visited with some family, but I do have a new place in Brooklyn."

His eyes are on the future—not the past.

"I'm focusing on my family, focusing on my friendships and focusing on my career," he noted. "There's a lot of things that I have right in front of me that are really exciting. In the past, when I've had difficult moments or difficult seasons, I've been able to get through that by really just taking better care of myself.

Which includes therapy and acupuncture. Plus, as he told E!, "Staying focused on my career and things that excite me and keeping my head down."

Summer House returns Thursday, Feb. 22, at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
